This surgical procedure has helped over 99% of our patients achieve better vision and drive better. Phakic IOL is a surgical procedure in which a premium synthetic lens is placed in front of your natural lens. This is done to correct vision problems like the traditional contact lens, but in this case, it is done from within your eyes.
This new premium synthetic lens aims at correcting your vision and reducing your dependence on contact lens and glasses.
You would not be allowed to drive for a few days after your surgery. So, it is advised you to come with a family member or a friend, or you can arrange for a transport service.
Your friend or family member can also accompany you for your surgery, treatment, and follow-up appointments.
When you arrive at the clinic, your surgeon will meet with you and greet you, and he or she will go over the procedure with you and answer any question that you might have.
Your optometrist will apply dilating and anaesthetic drops to your eyes, light sedation will also be given to you by an anaesthetist, and this will relax your body.
This means you will be a little aware of what is going on during the surgical procedure, but you will not feel pain, and you will be relaxed and comfortable while the surgery is going on.
Your surgeon will prepare you by creating a tiny opening on the surface of your eye. This hole is known as the entry point.
A new lens will be implanted and secured into place. It will be attached to either the front or the back of the iris; the placement depends on the type of lens your surgeon is using. The iris is the circular structure in your eye that determines the eye colour.
After the artificial lens has been inserted, your surgeon will apply eye drops and cover your eye with a shield or patch. This is done to ensure that your eye remains clean and protected.
You will experience some mild discomforts and pains when the anaesthetic starts wearing off. You can use OTC painkillers to manage this if it is necessary.
You will be asked to go home and rest, and if your second eye needs surgery, you will be asked to come back the following day. You will notice a rapid improvement in your vision after the surgery.
At Optimal Vision, we run aftercare programmes for our patients as part of our services. In this programme, your optometrist and surgeon will recommend that you attend routine aftercare appointment. This usually takes place one day after your surgery, and the next occurs one week after. This aftercare programme lasts for 12 months, and you are also expected to return for regular appointments as scheduled by your optometrist.

I recently had my ICL surgery done. It feels like a miracle being able to see again without glasses. The journey from the initial phone call up until the actual surgery was first class. I highly recommend this place. Thanks very much to everyone in the Optimal Vision clinic!
Really appreciated the friendliness of all staff, and their willingness to go above and beyond to make me feel at ease about the procedure.
Excellent service from start to finish. It worth every penny.
I had LASIK Eye Surgery in Optimal Vision Clinic and I always scared to do this, but it wasn't like that I imagined. I only feel uncomfortable for a day and it all went very well and If I knew it is so easy, I would do it 5 years ago.
I have had to change the power of my glasses frequently! Optimal Vision offered me the best solution with LASIK eye surgery. Now I can read tiny write ups without glasses. Best clinic with the best treatment.
My experience at Optimal Vision has been amazing and had a cataract surgery and now I feel more confident. Staff are very professional; from the front desk all the way to the surgeons. The clinic itself is very modern and well located. It is close to a tube station, coffee shops and restaurants.
My mother had to replace her lens and as she has a heart disease we couldn't just trust to any clinic and do it, after searching and asking many people, we were recommended to this clinic, we went there and the doctor assured us about my mother condition and he was very confident to do this surgery and we trusted him. My mother has done the surgery without any problems and all was good. We can not thank Dr Mani enough.
