Find Out What ICL Surgery Can Do For You

Implantable Collamer Lenses (ICL), also known as implantable contact lenses or phakic intraocular lenses (IOL), are implants that your ophthalmologist surgically places inside the eye, between the iris and the natural lens, to help correct refractive problems.
Schedule an assessment to see if you are a candidate for the procedure.


ICL Surgical Process

Before the surgery, your eyes will be numbed with drops. Your ophthalmologist will use a lid speculum to keep your eyes open during the procedure.

A small incision is made in the eye using a blade or a laser. Your ophthalmologist then inserts a lens designed to correct your vision through that incision and positions the ICL between your lens and iris (the coloured part of your eye). No sutures or stitches are required.

After the procedure, your ophthalmologist will give you medications to aid healing and prevent infection, as well as an eye shield to keep you from rubbing your eyes when you sleep.

Your eye care team will book subsequent check-up appointments to monitor your recovery.

Differences Between ICL & Other Refractive Surgeries

While other refractive surgeries are permanent, ICL surgery can be reversed to accommodate any refractive changes that might occur while you age. ICL works with your eye to help provide you with the best vision possible.

Because ICL surgery has less impact on the cornea, there is a decreased risk of experiencing dry eyes. ICL shares some of the risks seen in LASIK or PRK surgery, specifically halos or glares. Also there is an increased risk of cataracts following ICL surgery.

What Does ICL Treat?

ICL can provide you with fantastic vision, and is often recommended for patients who have a high amount of myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism.

Schedule an assessment to see if ICL surgery can improve the quality of your vision.
