Our centre takes pleasure in being able to give our patients with a comprehensive range of vision correction treatments that may be tailored to their specific eyesight and produce the best possible results.
The Implantable Contact Lens (ICL) is a common treatment option at our clinic for medium to high levels of myopia (nearsightedness).
Collamer (a sophisticated lens material that is very biocompatible) is inserted in the eye beneath the iris and in front of the normal lens to create a very thin, soft, flexible lens. The Visian ICL is microscopically thin and may be put into the eye without sutures through a tiny incision.
The lens functions as an inside contact lens, correcting eyesight instantly and permanently. It’s excellent for persons with moderate – to – severe myopia or nearsightedness, and it’s a great option to LASIK for these people, typically providing better visual outcomes than regular glasses or contacts.
Because the lens is formed of collagen, a naturally existing protein, it complements the eye. Even yet, if any issues arise, the lens may be simply removed at any moment with few consequences.
The lens requires no maintenance and is designed to stay in place for as long as you are pleased with your vision. If your eyesight changes or you choose to have them removed at any time, it is simple and does not compromise your vision in any way.
Thin Corneas: The cornea is the curved section of the eye’s front surface. The Visian ICL has no impact on the cornea, which may be suitable if your corneas are thin.
Dry Eyes: Visian ICL has no effect on or causes dry eyes.
Extreme Refractive Error: Visual acuity in the eye’s focusing of light is a common cause of poor visual acuity. Patients with mild and severe high refractive errors, as well as those wanting clear vision, may be candidates for the Visian ICL.
It is a day-care operation that takes 5 to 10 minutes to complete. Your eyes will be anesthetized with anesthetic eye drops throughout the process. The lens will be inserted into your eye through a small, self-sealing incision made by your surgeon. There is little to no discomfort, and the benefits are noticeable right away.
No. ICL is done under topical anesthetic, is painless, and takes less than 10 minutes to complete.
Yes. ICL is a permanent treatment that stays in your eye for the rest of your life.
The cost of non-toric ICL is 85,000 per eye, whereas toric ICL is 110,000 per eye.
Both treatments have advantages and disadvantages; ICL is used on those who aren’t candidates for lasik/prk and has its own set of benefits.
Any surgical treatment entails some risk, but with the new improved ICL, adverse effects are quite unlikely.
The next day, you can continue all of your routine activities.
No, there is a two-day break between each eye.
