We describe the case of a 30-year-old man with pathological myopia with a phakic intraocular lens (IOL) (Visian ICL V4c model; STAAR, Monrovia, California, USA) in situ having complaints of metamorphopsia in the left eye with documented myopic foveoschisis on swept-source optical coherence tomography (DRI OCT Triton; Topcon, Tokyo, Japan). The patient underwent pars plana vitrectomy with internal limiting membrane peeling. This report discusses the intraoperative challenges occurring as a result of increased optical aberrations in the presence of a phakic IOL.
