Verisyse phakic intraocular lens implant for high myopia

Contributor: Jesse Vislisel, MD

The Verisyse lens is an iris-fixated anterior chamber lens that is marketed as the Artisan lens outside of the US. It is a phakic intraocular lens implant for the correction of myopia. It is available as an alternative to laser refractive surgery and may be an option for patients who are poor candidates for laser surgery.

These images show the appearance of a Verisyse lens implant in a patient with a preoperative refraction of -15.00 D.
