What is ICL?

ICL, also known as Implantable Collamer Lens is a type of refractive surgery for correcting various refractive errors such as far-sightedness, near-sightedness, and astigmatism.

Phakic lenses are clear implantable customized lenses that are surgically placed between the cornea and the iris without removing your natural lens. Phakic contact lenses function like usual contact lenses to correct refractive errors, except that it works from the inner side. ICL does not require any cumbersome.

What happens in ICL treatment?

What happens in ICL treatment?

When you arrive at the eye clinic, the doctor will first administer eye drops to dilate the pupils and sedate the eyes. The corneal tissue is not affected during the surgery. The eye specialist will fold the ICL through a tiny incision at the base of the cornea. Once the tissue is inserted behind the iris, the doctor will adjust the ICL to ensure proper positioning within the eye to ensure proper vision. The procedure requires no stitches after the operation.

Here are a few significant benefits of ICL treatment:

  • ICL works similar to a contact lens which is inserted into the eye through a tiny 2.8 mm incision.
  • This contact lens is used for correction of the long range of myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism (cylindrical power) and presbyopia (both distance and near vision).
  • ICL treatment offers a high-quality vision. The ICL treatment not just corrects refractive power but it also upgrades the quality of vision.
  • ICL involves small incisions and ensures faster healing.

In addition to improved vision, there are numerous other benefits of ICL, such as:

  • The lens provides improved night vision
  • The treatment can fix severe nearsightedness that cannot be corrected with any other refractive surgeries.
