Advantages:
1) The procedure is reversible : The lens can be removed.
2) Is more reliable for high myopia upto -25D and high hypermetropia upto 12D.

Types of lenses :

1)

Posterior chamber lens: In this the lenses put between back of the iris and front of lens. Complications associated with it are: mainly cataract formation. These lenses are difficult to remove because of adhesion formation.

2)

Angle supported anterior chamber lens: Lens is supported in angle of anterior chamber and lies in front of iris. Complications associated with it are: glaucoma, pupillary distortion and corneal damage.
