ICL Implantation for Lifelong Clarity.
ICL (Implantable Collamer Lens) implantation is a surgical procedure in which a specially designed artificial lens made of plastic and collagen is placed between the natural lens and the iris. Unlike laser eye surgery, ICL is an “additive” technology that does not involve reshaping the cornea. It provides excellent vision by focusing light sharply onto the retina. ICL is an ideal option for many patients as it can eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses. This innovative approach offers decades of clear vision without altering the structure of the cornea.
Who Should Opt for ICL?
ICL (Implantable Collamer Lens) is a suitable option for individuals seeking vision correction, especially those with conditions like myopia, long-sightedness, and astigmatism. Compared to laser eye surgery, ICL offers similar final vision outcomes but provides superior quality of vision.
Unlike laser surgery, ICL does not involve corneal treatment, reducing the risk of induced aberrations and enhancing aspects like colour saturation, contrast sensitivity, and low-light vision. ICL is particularly beneficial for individuals with thin corneas or dry eye symptoms that make laser surgery unsuitable.
The ideal candidates for ICL are typically between 21 to 45 years old, have stable prescriptions, and exhibit appropriate eye measurements for safe implantation
