Implantable Contact Lens (ICL)

ICL Implantable Collamer Lens

ICL Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) has a history of more than 30 years and covers more than 75 countries. It is currently the only vision correction surgery that does not require cutting angle grinding tissue, and it is also the only "reversible" vision correction surgery. The principle of the operation is to implant a personalized artificial lens into the eye through minimally invasive technology. The lens will not be rejected by the body and can be permanently placed in the eye. Surgery will not change the shape and structure of the eye, and it is a safe, efficient and reliable vision correction surgery. At present, 2 million artificial lenses have been successfully implanted in the world.

ICL 有什麼好處?

ICL implantable Collamer Lens Procedure

The doctor will first drop anesthesia eye drops on the patient's eyes, and then cut a small incision of about 3 mm in the patient's cornea. Through the incision, inject a medical gel into the eye to protect the tissue in the eye, and then remove the curled cornea. The lens is implanted in the eye and placed between the iris and the lens of the eye, just like wearing a contact lens directly on the eye to achieve the effect of vision correction. The general surgical procedure takes about 10 to 15 minutes. Because the wound is thin, there is no need for stitches after the operation, and it will heal naturally. Most of the vision can be restored the next day.

Is power rebound problem common after ICL surgery?

The problem of rebound after ICL surgery is very rare. Because ICL surgery corrects myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism by implanting lenses. During ICL surgery, there is no need to cut the cornea, the eye structure is still stable and there is no problem of corneal recovery, so the chance of rebound is very low.

What are the limitations of ICLs?

  • Requires adequate anterior chamber space of the eye
  • Corneal endothelial cells
  • Glaucoma, cataract patients are not candidates for ICL surgery
  • ICL surgery is not suitable for pregnant women or breastfeeding

Can ICL be performed on both eyes on the same day?

It is usually recommended that the two eyes be performed separately, and that the second eye be operated on after the first eye has been completed and vision is in good condition and has recovered. If you have special needs, you can discuss it with your doctor if you want to do it at the same time. The doctor will make a decision according to your situation.
