ICL-Implantable Collamer Lens

Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) is a great alternative for myopia vision correction that does not involve removing eye tissue. For those patients with very thin corneas or extreme nearsightedness or farsightedness, this lens implant can be an excellent option to correct myopia vision without the use of glasses or contacts. While ICL can be a permanent correction for your myopia vision, the lens can be removed or replaced should your vision needs change.

This advanced lens implant contains a UV blocker that prevents harmful UVA and UVB rays from entering the eye. And because your cornea tissue has not been affected by this procedure, dry eye will not be an issue.

As the name suggests, this is a Lens that is implanted into the eye positioned over the natural crystalline lens and behind the iris. This Lens can be used to treat those patients for whom LASIK is not possible. E.g. very high refractive errors, or thin corneas, stabilized Keratoconus.

It is a permanent lens and stays in the eye, thus obviating the need for daily use and removal as in contact lens users.

The implantation of this lens requires a detailed evaluation. Ask our Doctors for more details on the same.

How Is LASIK Surgery Works?

Lasik surgeon uses either a mechanical surgical tool called a microkeratome or a femtosecond laser to create a thin, circular flap in the cornea. The surgeon then folds back the hinged flap to access the underlying cornea and removes some corneal tissue using an excimer laser.

This highly specialized laser uses a cool ultraviolet light beam to remove microscopic amounts of tissue from the cornea to reshape it so it more accurately focuses light on the retina for improved vision. After the laser reshapes the cornea, the flap is then laid back in place, covering the area where the corneal tissue was removed. Then the cornea is allowed to heal naturally.

Laser eye surgery requires only topical anesthetic drops, and no bandages or stitches are required.
