Strong Rx: Implantable Lenses


If you can’t get laser surgery because of a strong prescription, artificial lenses — called phakic intraocular lenses (PIOLs) — may be an option. They’re FDA approved for treating nearsightedness. The lenses are made of silicone or plastic and are surgically placed in front of the eye’s natural lens. Possible risks include loss of vision, night vision problems, and additional surgery to adjust, remove, or replace lenses.
