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.
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.
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.
If you have already been cleared by your optometrist to have ICL eye surgery and they have filled out our referral document, the next step is to contact us about requesting an assessment.
We look forward to helping you achieve clear vision and healthy eyes.

I am considering a career change and was referred to Dr. Bhamra by Dr. Burke for ICL surgery to correct my vision. All the staff at Vector Eye Centre were highly professional and the clinic was run very efficiently. Overall it was a very good experience, and I would highly recommend Vector Eye Centre and Dr. Bhamra.
The staff at Vector Eye Centre are extremely friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. If you are uncertain about any procedure or your eye condition, just ask and they will certainly give you a satisfactory explanation. I am very short sighted and the normal multifocal lenses were not available for my correction. Dr Bhamra obtained the LISA lenses from Ziess Germany and now I will never need glasses or contact lenses.
Dr Bhamra and his staff have been absolutely wonderful in dealing with my wife’s extremely complex eye condition. Having a world-class physician / surgeon like Dr Bhamra in your corner is well worth the wait, I would highly recommend Vector Eye Centre to anyone dealing with eye issues.
I had my surgery to have lenses inserted to both eyes. Initially was unsure of how I felt about this decision due to the halos I saw at night. My eyes have adjusted and it is no longer an issue. I am so thankful for the improvements to my sight! No more glasses and I can now see details so well when I paint. Very grateful. Thank you!
