Implantable Collamer Lens Dislocation

      Although the implantation of implantable collamer lens (ICL), a posterior chamber phakic intraocular lens (PCPIOL), has been proven to be an effective, predictable and reversible surgical technique to correct high myopia and hyperopia, it does carry a potential risk of postoperative complications, such as cataract formation and pupillary block.
