ICL (Implantable Contact Lens) Surgery Indore

The ICL (IMPLANTABLE COLLAMER LENS) is a state-of-the-art refractive error solution that is ideal for anyone who has the need or desire for removal of power with high myopia. This phakic intraocular lens has numerous advantages including its correction of the widest range of myopia (near sightedness), hypermetropia (far sightedness) and astigmatism (cylindrical power). The lens is customized according to each eye’s shape and size.

ICL can correct a wide range of vision errors by permanently inserting a Contact lens in between the iris and the natural lens of the eye. ICL is a kind of soft contact lens which is inserted into the eye through a very small incision.

Just like other refractive surgery (LASIK or Wavefront Lasik) it takes only 5-10 minutes for the procedure. Widest power correction range from +10D to -20D with cylinder upto 6D Made from a material called “Collamer” which is bio compatible (safe to stay in the eye for very long time) This new technique is similar to cataract surgery, but the natural lens remains in place so the eye’s natural focusing ability is preserved. An implantable contact lens is beneficial because it becomes a permanent fixture of the eye. It does not have to be replaced like glasses and contact lenses.

ICL procedures are being used on highly nearsighted and farsighted patients who may not be eligible for common refractive surgery procedures such as LASIK and PRK. Unlike laser vision correction procedures that permanently change your vision, it is possible in ICL procedure to later remove an ICL whenever patient wants to remove the same.

The ICL is made of Collamer®, a highly biocompatible advanced lens material which contains a small amount of purified collagen. Collamer does not cause a reaction inside the eye and it contains an ultraviolet filter that provides protection to the eye. Collamer is a material proprietary to STAAR Surgical Company,the company that manufactures ICL.
