Implantable Contact Lens Surgery

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. 

The Definition Of Implantable Contact Lens Surgery

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.

What's The Work Of The ICL?

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!

Who Can Get Implantable Contact Lens Surgery?

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.

What To Expect During Implantable Contact Lens Surgery

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.

Post ICL Surgery Recovery

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.
