Posterior phakic lenses implanted into the ciliary sulcus are currently a very dynamically developing method of refractive surgery. This is the technique of choice in the correction of high refractive errors, and in other cases, they are interchangeable with laser correction and refractive lens exchange. Although this method has been known for 30 years, it has gained great popularity in the last decade due to the change of lens design and the improvement in preoperative diagnostics. Modern technology made it possible to precisely adjust the size and power of the lenses, which significantly improved the safety profile, effectiveness, stability, and predictability of this technique. Visian ICL collamer lenses Staar Surgical, which are the only phakic lenses certified in Europe, Asia and the USA, have been implanted in over 1 million patients worldwide. The article presents the authors’ own experiences with the use of phakic lenses. The eligibility criteria, surgical technique and risk of postoperative complications are described in the article
