- Phakic IOLs (PIOLs) became a corner stone in modern refractive surgery practice. Today, there are 3 Phakic IOLs designs available; posterior chamber, Iris fixated & angle supported lenses. Each phakic IOL design has its advantages, disadvantages & potential complications. All speakers invited to this debate have more than 10 years experience with phakic IOLs; each speaker prefers one design over the others. During the symposium speakers will highlight the advantages, disadvantages & potential complications of each PIOLs design explaining how to avoid and prevent complications. Presentations will be followed by discussion & comments from the faculty & audience. The course will be conducted by an expert panel, trying to create an interactive debate among speakers and audience. Audience will be asked to vote after each debate. By the end of the symposium, the delegates are expected to be able to describe the possible advantages & disadvantages of each phakic IOL design and selection of the best phakic IOL for a given patient and how to prevent, overcome and manage potential complications.
