This article focuses on Intraocular lenses (IOL). Potential intermittent contact has been proposed to play a role in cataract development with the sulcus-positioned posterior chamber phakic intraocular lens (IOL). A recent study however, has found that in a highly accommodated state, contact with the anterior chamber can occur with iris-fixated phakic IOLs.
