Use of intra-ocular lens to correct refraction errors without removing the natural lens.
Indications: any refractive errors that cannot be corrected through PRK or Lasik surgery:

  1. High Myopia more than -10 diopters
  2. Hyperopia more than +5 diopters
  3. Thin cornea


  • Local or general anaesthesia.
  • Small corneal incision.
  • Intra-ocular lens inserted and attached to the iris. (ARTISAN)
  • Corneal suture which is removed 4 weeks later.

Advantages of Artisan intra-ocular lens:

  • 10 years of clinical experience since the 80’s.
  • Myopic lens of 5mm allowing correction up to -23 diopters.
  • Myopic lens of 6mm allowing correction up to -16 diopters.
  • hyperopic implant of 5mm allowing correction up to +12 diopters.
  • Very low risk of induced cataract.
  • Very low risk of corneal decompensation.
  • Reversible treatment by easy removal.



Phakic intraocular lens correcting high astigmatism up to 7,5 dioptres, simultaneously with high myopia.

Possible complications:

  • Pigments dispersion and ocular hypertension that can be treated by local medications.
  • Low risk of infection or post-operative inflammation: 2 to 3/1000
  • Exceptional risk of decrease of endothelial density requiring lens removal.
