Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL)

Refractive Surgery

Various scans will need to be performed in order to determine what technique of corrective surgery the patient will be suitable for. Refractive surgery techniques include: iLASIK, Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) and Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL).

Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL)

The ICL can be thought of as a permanent contact lens. The ICL is biocompatible and implanted within the eye between the iris and crystalline lens. This lens is not visible to patients and observers. The ICL can be removed or replaced at the surgeons discretion without injury to the eye.

Myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism can be treated with an ICL. Patients with dry eyes, thin corneas and who are not suitable for laser correction are possible candidates for ICL’S.
