Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL)
Have you been told that you are not a candidate for LASIK? ICL might be the answer you have been looking for. This safe and effective treatment is an option for patients who are unable to have LASIK or PRK.
How It Works
ICL is gently inserted into the eye. Once in place the ICL bends the light to focus it perfectly onto the retina, similar to how a contact lens works on the surface of the eye. However unlike traditional contact lenses, the ICL is positioned inside the eye between the iris (the colored part of the eye) and the natural lens, where it remains in place indefinitely without needing maintenance.
The procedure is quick and painless, and patients can usually expect it to last 10 to 20 minutes.
