Implantable Contact Lenses
Implantable Collamer lenses, also referred to as phakic intraocular lenses, or IOLs, and can be permanently implanted into the eye for instant correction of nearsightedness and astigmatism. The eye’s natural lens remains intact while tiny correction lenses made from biocompatible material are placed inside the eye. Implantable Collamer lenses are most popular with patients who have high degrees of correction that may not make good laser vision correction candidates.
After successful implantation, patients will benefit from improved vision clarity without the need for glasses or contacts.
During ICL treatment, your doctor will numb your eye with a local anesthetic, create a tiny incision in the side of the cornea, and place the new lens in front of your natural lens and behind the cornea. The incision site is self-sealing, and recovery from the ICL procedure is rapid. Most patients are able to focus clearly within minutes of completion!
The ICL procedure is reversible in the event your vision changes dramatically, and it may be combined with other procedures to achieve optimal vision results.
