Presents case reports of patients with high myopia who underwent clear lens extraction after epikeratoplasty lenticule removal. Result of the comprehensive ophthalmological examination of the first patient; Decrease in the second patient's best spectacle-corrected visual acuity after epikeratoplasty; Refraction in the third patient's operated eye after lenticule removal.
