The article provides a review of the literature on the history and practical application of phakic intraocular lenses for correction of high-degree myopia. Typical postoperative complications and peculiarities of the effect on the eye tissues depending on the location are described for each model of the lens. The analysis of safety and expectations of refractive effect are made. The available results in the literature allow to evaluate the high efficiency of phakic intraocular lens implantation in the correction of ametropies of various degrees, so this method of implantation has been attracting the attention of ophthalmic surgeons for a long time.

Keywords: Phakic Intraocular Lens; High Myopia; Optical Correction of Refractive Ametropia
