ICL Implantable Contact Lens
ICL Implantable Contact 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.

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.
