Abstract
We report a case in which an angle-supported phakic IOL was implanted to correct high myopia. Subsequently, the patient experienced photophobia, glare, halo, and loss of visual acuity and became concerned about the cosmetically deforming aspect of her eye. Findings included endothelial cell loss, cataract, pupil ovalization, and severe iris atrophy. The pIOL was removed and cataract surgery was performed, followed by implantation of a bag-in-the-lens IOL, but successful surgical repair of the iris was not possible because of severe iris atrophy.
