Angle-Supported Phakic IOL Migration Following Trauma
Rotation of the angle-supported PIOL is a potential long-term complication of phakic IOL . Rotation can occur in all models of AS PIOLs, especially following trauma. The Kelman Duet anterior chamber intraocular lens, because of its three-point fixation, can rotate in a counterclockwise direction .
