Implantable Contact Lens

Implantable Contact Lens (ICL)Implantable Contact Lens (Collamer ICL) is an option for patients with high degrees of myopia or hyperopia, who cannot be corrected with LASIK or patients, who for other reasons are not good candidates for laser refractive surgery.

The Implantable Contact Lens produces highly accurate vision correction with the insertion of a tiny, soft lens. The ICL is placed inside the eye in front of the natural lens and behind the iris, (coloured part of the eye), rather than on the corneal surface like a contact lens. The ICL is injected through a tiny incision and then unfolded into position in front of the natural lens, working together to provide you with clear unaided vision. No sutures are required because the incision is so small and the postoperative discomfort is minimal.

Following surgery eye drops are used and there several post operative exams. Typically, the procedure is completed within 10-15 minutes per eye with little discomfort.
