The Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) is a contact lens that can be implanted into the eye without removing the natural lens. Collamer, a collagen co-polymer containing a trace of purified collagen, is used to make this lens. The lens is highly safe, soft, flexible, and moist because it is stable and biocompatible. As ICL is implanted through a microscopic incision with no stitches, it has no effect on the natural shape or health of the cornea.
ICL surgery allows for the safe and effective surgical correction of powers up to -20D and cylindrical correction of 6D. An ICL provides better vision than a contact lens because it does not move and can correct cylindrical and spherical power more effectively.
ICL is an artificial lens that functions similarly to a contact lens and has the same structure as an intraocular lens. The ICL is placed in front of the natural lens of the eye, behind the iris, where it is invisible to both outside observers and the patient. The ICL procedure can correct moderate to severe myopia.
LASIK is a surface procedure that involves the removal of a portion of the cornea. The procedure is permanent. Visit our LASIK page to know more details
