To report a case of traumatic repetitious anterior Phakic Intraocular Lens (ICL) dislocation and its review of Literature. Following Blunt trauma in a 31-year-old male, partial, anterior, nasal dislocation of ICL was noted after two years of implantation. Immediately after reposition, spontaneous repeated dislocation was noted during the first postoperative day. The ICL was reposited twice in our patient. The reasons for the repetitious prolapse of the haptics of ICL were discussed in detail with reference to the review of Literature. The most common complications following ICL implantation are cataracts and Glaucoma, which could be prevented by accurate sizing of the lenses. In addition to wrong sizing, spontaneous ICL dislocations occur due to other factors such as abnormal positioning of ICL in the sulcus, and the size of the pupil during the immediate postoperative period.
