Implantable Contact Lenses

For high levels of vision correction, ICL has been demonstrated to achieve better visual outcomes for patients when compares to LASIK surgery, and long-term data has confirmed the safety of this modality.

The ICL is an extra lens which is implanted in the eye, similar to a contact lens. The difference is, that the ICL is placed inside the eye rather than on the surface of the eye as a contact lens is.  An ICL is soft and tiny -much like the natural lens of the eye- but it does not replace it.  The ICL is also specially shaped to correct both near and far-sightedness.

Because the ICL is so tiny and soft, it can be folded up so small that it can be injected into the eye in seconds, through a tiny, self-sealing opening. Once injected, the ICL unfolds into position in the liquid between the iris and the natural lens of the eye. ICL is able to correct the eyesight, usually without any further treatment being necessary.

As the ICL is tiny and soft, it can be folded up so small that it can be injected into the eye in seconds through a tiny self-sealing opening. Once injected, the ICL unfolds into position in the liquid between the iris and natural lens. ICL corrects the eyesight usually without any further treatment being necessary. The ICL can also be removed or replaced if needed, in another simple procedure, making it a very convenient and appealing choice for many people.
