Refractive Surgery with Implantable Contact Lenses - ICL

The alternative to Lasik for cases in which the visual impairment is not a candidate for this procedure is the insertion of implantable contact lenses (ICL) or phakic intraocular lenses.

ICL insertion consists of an outpatient procedure in which a lens is placed between the iris and the crystalline lens to correct the following visual impairments:

  • Moderate to severe myopia.
  • Moderate to high astigmatism.
  • Thin cornea.
  • Dry eye syndrome.

If a high-grade of correction beyond the capabilities of laser is required ICL may correct the visual impairment.

The advantages of implantable contact lenses are:

  • The procedure is fast and safe.
  • It takes no more than 15 minutes per eye.
  • It is a reversible surgical procedure In the case of unsuitability, it can be removed.
  • Post-operative discomfort is diminished.
  • It is the ideal treatment for myopic patients with high diopters, thin cornea or dry eye syndrome.
  • It is compatible with Lasik-Intralase as the cornea remains intact throughout the lens implantation process.
