Phakic intraocular lenses (pIOLs) have been widely implanted and are a great option for the correction of high refractive errors. There are three types of pIOLs: angle-supported, iris-fixated, and posterior chamber pIOLs. Regardless of the pIOL type, all of them will be explanted at some point, mainly due to cataract development. Therefore, it is important to know the visual and refractive outcomes of bilensectomy (pIOL explantation following cataract surgery and intraocular lens implantation). The aim of this article is to review the visual outcomes and complications of bilensectomy.
