Laser in-situ keratomileusis, or LASIK, is the most common refractive error correction surgery. Lasik is used to alter the cornea of the eye in order to improve visual acuity in patients with mild to moderate refractive error and reduce their dependence on eyeglasses and contact lenses.
Phakic IOL (ICL) Implantation
The Phakic IOL is an artificial lens that is implanted into your eye to correct high degrees of refractive errors. Often, phakic intralocular lenses are suggested when LASIK or PRK are not appropriate options because of severe myopia, thin cornea, or if you have keratoconus.
