A Quick Guide to Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) Surgery
Are you considering ICL surgery for vision correction? It’s a great choice for many people, including those who have been told that they are not eligible for laser eye surgery. The Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) is a type of vision correction procedure that can correct nearsightedness & astigmatism. Learn more about ICL surgery and the three important things you should know before your procedure below.
What Is ICL Surgery?
ICL Eye Surgery involves implanting a tiny lens in the eye that helps to correct vision problems. It is an effective alternative to laser eye surgery and is suitable for many patients including those with higher prescriptions or thin corneas who may not be eligible for laser eye treatments. During the procedure, your surgeon will place a foldable intraocular lens in front of the natural lens of the eye. This device will then help to focus light onto the retina correctly and improve your vision. Once it is implanted, it becomes a permanent part of your eye and is not expected to be replaced or adjusted.
What Are the Advantages of ICL Surgery?
There are several advantages to choosing ICL surgery, including being able to treat higher myopia (farsightedness) levels than other laser treatments can address. Additionally, ICL implants can be removed if necessary if your vision were to change unexpectedly.
What Are the Risks Involved?
As with any surgical procedure, there are risks associated with ICL surgery as well as potential side effects such as inflammation. However, when performed by experienced doctors using quality products from trusted manufacturers these risks can be minimized significantly so that you can enjoy better vision with minimal risk involved in the process.
Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) surgery offers many benefits over traditional laser eye treatments for those who have been told that they are ineligible for them due to their prescription level or thin corneas.
Be sure to talk with your doctor about any questions or concerns you may have before undergoing any kind of vision correction treatment so that you can make an informed decision based on all available information. With ICL surgery, you could be looking forward to clearer vision without glasses very soon!
Be sure to talk to one of our doctors about not only the benefits of vision correction, but also any risks of vision correction that may pertain to your individual needs and circumstances.
