What's The Work Of The ICL?

Our eyes look like a camera, when light penetrates through lens and cornea(window of the eye), it focuses on the retina(similar to film in camera), our optic nerve then transmit the image or the information to our brain, which  interprets what you're seeing.

The most important part of our eyes focus developed by cornea and secondarily by lens which  together allow you to have a clear sight, this focus of light miss the retina(film) when the eyes are too short or too long. Short-sight happens when you have long eyeballs, which projects images in front of the retina. Long-sight occurs when the eyeballs are short and make images appear at the back of the retina.

Those that have very good eyesight possess a natural lens that alters its shape to enable them to see objects that position in different distance to our eyes, but where your long- or short-sightedness is significant, flexibility of natural lens, may not be able to fix your eye sight. The good news is that extra focusing power can be provided by the ICL implants which help the light to focus better without use of glasses or contact lens.
