ICL (Implantable Contact Lens)


What is ICL?

The ICL is an implantable lens that works for the natural lens of your eye to make your vision better. During this procedure, the lens is inserted between your iris and your natural lens through a tiny incision that usually does not require any stitches. It was developed in the 1980s, before LASIK and was first reported in 1990. ICL is also a reversible procedure in which the lens can be easily removed if the patient is experiencing any post-operative discomfort or complications, and the eye is returned to its preoperative state. ICL is also suitable for a wide range of prescriptions.
