MIRANDA HERNANDEZ, Iramis et al. Anterior chamber phakic introcular lens with angle fixation. Rev Cubana Oftalmol [online]. 2016, vol.29, n.4, pp.712-720. ISSN 0864-2176.

The emergence of the phakic intraocular lenses in the last decades showed a new alternative for the extreme ametropias. Since1950 different models of phakic intraoduclar lenses have been designed with different designs and complications. Here is a patient with a history of high myopia who, after having undergone the implantation of an anterior chamber phakic intraocular lens with angle fixation, presented with abundant iridian pigmentation over the lens and anterior sinechia at 360 degrees. The objectives of this report were to provide an update on the complications of the implantation of these lenses as well as making some recommendations to timely detect the possible risks of this procedure.

Keywords : anterior chamber phakic intraocular lens; high myopia; complications.
