Abstract: We present the possibility of using a triplet as an intraocular lens (IOL). The matrix method was used to calculate the power of this triplet for high myopia. The thickness of the lens, the distances between the edges of the IOL and the endothelium, the distances between the edges of the IOL and the iris, and the influence of axial displacement have been analyzed. We have also compared the size, the thickness, the power, the distances between the edges of the IOL and the endothelium, and the distances between the edges of the IOL and the iris to the typical concave-plane lens that is usually implanted in highly myopic eyes. As we can see, when the anterior chamber depth is normal, our triplet presents a better geometrical form than the concave-plane lens.
