Who Qualifies?

To qualify for phakic lenses, a patient must meet certain criteria, including:

  • The eyes must not have changed significantly in the last few years. Younger people cannot undergo intraocular contact lens implantation surgery because their eyes are still growing.
  • The eyes must have a normal pressure.
  • The iris must be normal.
  • The size of the pupil must be within a certain range.
  • The patient must not have a retinal detachment.
