Overview ICL / Implants
The Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) surgery is a revolutionary procedure where microscopic lenses are implanted into your eyes to help restore vision. Unlike standard contact lenses, these corrective lenses stay in place permanently and continuously improve sight over time with no further removal necessary!
For those struggling with myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism, ICLs offer a revolutionary solution. These lenses are inserted between the eye’s natural lens and iris, effectively bending incoming light rays to focus on the retina – resulting in improved vision quality. Unlike conventional contact lenses that you need to remove every day, ICLs remain permanently implanted within your eyes while eliminating or significantly reducing eyeglasses dependence at the same time. Although they don’t provide a full guarantee for fixing all visual impairments issues, ICLs can make a significant difference!
ICL surgery is a quick and straightforward procedure that usually requires no overnight stay. In just 15 minutes per eye, you can be on your way to improved vision with minimal recovery time – most patients are able to drive within two days!
ICL / Implants Procedure
ICL surgery is rapid and effortless – it only takes around 20-30 minutes! One week prior, you must visit your ophthamologist for an examination of your eyes’ health. Subsequently, a laser will create minuscule openings between the anterior chamber and natural lens to reduce pressure and fluid accumulation in your eye after the procedure has been completed. In addition to surgery, you may be prescribed antibiotics and anti-inflammatory eye drops to prepare your eyes for the procedure.
To start the procedure, your doctor will provide you with local anesthesia to ease any discomfort around the eye. Your eyes will then be held open using a lid speculum for added security and lubricant is applied to protect the cornea from damage. An incision is made and ICL is inserted through it before taking away the lubricant and sealing off any opening with tiny stitches. To conclude, an ointment or eye drops are put in place along with a protective patch that will remain until further notice. Following your surgery, you will be taken to the recovery room for a few hours of rest and monitoring. Your doctor will then give you an appointment for the day after tomorrow.
