Also known as implantable collamer, this optical treatment is ideal for patients who cannot get LASIK due to either a thin cornea, high-level prescription or a combination of both. Please book an appointment with us at Optimal Vision to know which treatment is right for your condition.
This is an eye treatment that works by inserting an artificial lens produced from a wafer-thin bio-compatible material in front of your natural lens. Extra focusing power from the lens helps the eye to see more clearly. Another name for this procedure is the Visian ICL phakic lens implant.
One benefit of the ICL treatment is that the process is reversible, unlike other eye surgery types. What does this mean? Your surgeon can remove the lens implant and replace it should there be changes in your vision. Alternatively, you can go for laser refinement if necessary. So, this permits the implantation of multifocal ICL lenses as people grow older and experience the inability to read text clearly after the age of 40.
When light penetrates through your lens and cornea, it focuses on the retina, and the optic nerve transmits the information to your brain, which then interprets what you're seeing.
The point of focus developed by the lens and cornea allows you to have a clear sight. But when the eyes are too short or long in comparison to that created by the lens and cornea, it is described as poor eyesight. 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 are close and far away. But where your long- or short-sightedness is very serious, the lens though flexible, may not be able to fix your sight. The good news is that extra focusing power can be provided by the ICL to aid your vision without the need for glasses. This eye treatment is truly amazing!
Your vision is vital for everyday living and is not to be taken for granted, especially if you are experiencing any form of poor eyesight. This is why we offer only tailor-made treatment without compromise to help you achieve the best sight.
Since we have our patients' best interest at heart, we have a transparent price system without hidden charges. Our credit payment plan carries zero interest, and it can be paid over six, ten, or twelve months. So, you can have this innovative optical care using our flexible payment system.
For a complete breakdown of the prices for our treatment and finance options, kindly schedule an appointment with us at Optimal Vision. Our doctors will attend to you and answer all your questions.
At our clinic, our surgeon offers laser eye surgery to fix a lot of prescriptions. But since LASIK has to do with changing the shape of the cornea with a laser, persons having thin cornea cannot get this treatment.
At the same time, should you have a high-level prescription, you may not be eligible for laser eye surgery since a more significant part of the cornea will require treatment for better eyesight.
Note: High prescription describes lenses that are very thick and glasses that are heavy. Contact lenses are usually not often an option either.
However, with ICL surgery, patients having a high-level prescription can get treated. Again, a person with dry eyes can find a realistic fix in ICL surgery.
As professionals in the field, we have surgeons who will do an extensive examination of your eyes and recommend the appropriate solution for your case. Always get eyecare from experts who are highly experienced and trained, so you don't end up with a more severe issue than you had before. Think through any eye treatment you are interested in and research the best treatment provider you can contact for help.
Patients ready for ICL are usually given a local anaesthetic to make the eyes numb throughout the procedure, which lasts around 10 to 20 minutes. You may also be sedated for added relaxation on the day of the operation.
A little incision will be made on the cornea by your surgeon. The ICL which is initially folded will be inserted in your eye where it will gently unfold by itself. Your surgeon will then proceed to place it in the right position between your iris and natural lens.
Since it's introduction in the 1900s, the lens has seen constant improvement in design which makes the surgical procedure a lot safer. It might interest you to know that over a million ICL have been implanted without hitch all over the world.
Since the body system differs from person to person, many patients usually feel a little discomfort after the surgery. They may be able to resume work after a couple of days. However, the procedure is safe and pain-free and should not be a cause for concern.
After the surgical work, your sight will improve significantly than before when you still had glasses. All those things you could not do due to the high-level prescription can now be done without stress.
So many eye clinics offer great treatments, but ours is unique because:

I had an absolutely wonderful experience doing Lasik at this clinic. Their entire staff was extremely professional and courteous throughout the entire process.
My surgeon was wonderful, made me feel entirely at ease before and during surgery. Highly recommended.
Laser eye surgery, now glasses free after 23 years! :)
I have always thought about laser, I have worn glasses for 23 years. I was very anxious, worried about the what ifs. I had an appointment with Dr Mani, he explained everything to me and I decided to go ahead with the surgery. It was so fast, Dr Mani did remind me to be patient and I think this is very important. I am now glasses free and hoping this will continue! After care was good, a week after surgery I was concerned and Dr Mani invited me down to check my eyes to be sure all was ok. Thank you
LASIK with Dr. Mani
I had LASIK surgery with Dr. Mani. It was painless, smooth, and everything went well. The staff and Dr. Mani are all friendly and will answer all questions asked. Will recommend 100%! Thank you!
I had a great experience performing my laser eye surgery at Optimal Vision Clinic. All the staffs are very helpful, co-operative and supportive throughout the treatment process. On the first call, they explained the entire procedure in details and gave necessary instructions at every stage. My eye surgeon made me feel comfortable and relaxed before and during the procedure. Aftercare was done properly with a thorough check-up of my eyes. I would like to recommend this clinic to everyone!
Very happy and impressed with the highly professional care and service I’ve received at the Optimal Vision clinic. Dr Mani is so professional, and he explained everything about Laser surgery and answered all my questions. The surgery was quick and almost completely painless. My eyes have healed perfectly and quickly. I would highly recommend this clinic.
My husband had been experiencing discomfort in his left eye since July and was seen by various doctors/consultants even at the Queen Mary’s hospital but no abnormalities were found.
This week Dr. Mani discovered the fault which happened to be Retina detachment with three tears.
Dr. Mani’s preciseness and his perfectionist attitude to attention to details, detected the source of the main issue and saved my husband’s eye. We feel utterly grateful and can not recommend him enough for his excellence.
