Refractive errors are commonly manifested by blurred vision in which the eye is unable to focus the image.
There are 4 main types of refractive errors:
Intraocular (or phakic) lens is a new technology of vision correction in high degrees of refractive errors. For example, in high myopia (-20D), hyperopia (up to 10D) and astigmatism (up to 6D). The technology consists in implanting a biocompatible contact lens into the eye by a microsurgical method which allows to achieve a clear near and distance vision almost immediately after a surgery. Furthermore, implantation of intraocular lenses permanently eliminates wearing glasses or removable contact lenses.
Phakic lenses of the Swiss brand STAAR ICL are represented by the following models:
VICH Spherical for Hyperopic (above +2,75D)
VICM Spherical for Myopic
VTICH Toric for Hyperopic (above +2,75D)
VTICM Toric for Myopic
VICMO Spherical for Myopic (above – 6,0D)
VTICMO Toric for Myopic (above – 6,0D)
