ICL(Implantable Contact Lens) is specially designed lens for people with high nearsightedness or farsightedness. During the ICL surgery, an intraocular lens is implanted on the natural lens of the eye with the cornea conserved.
ICL surgery provides best and clearest vision, compared with other refractive surgeries.
It is excellent because the cornea is not damaged during or after surgery. For those with high nearsightedness or with such a thin cornea that it is impossible to perform LASIK or LASEK, this surgery may be an option. Unlike clear lens extraction (CLE), the eye’s lens is conserved, so the flexibility of the lens between near and distant vision is kept as it is. Therefore, ICL surgery is a vision correction treatment by which the shortcomings of existing refractive surgeries like LASIK can be overcome.
It is a permanent corrective surgery involving the insertion of bionic-friendly-material lenses, unlike other laser correction surgeries which cut and damage the cornea. The cornea is preserved the cornea eliminating worries about degeneration.
Correct naked eyesight on the day of surgery.
In 95% of cases, the corrected eyesight is more than 20/20 on the next day.
No vision regression after surgery.
Preserves cornea, natural and safe eye correction.
Easy surgery and quick recovery. 15~20 min operation.
If there is any complication, it is easy to remove the lens and return to your former state.
Your surgeon will use a YAG laser to make one or two small openings near the edge of your iris, which is the colored part of the eye. These opening serve as outlets that will allow the fluid in your eye to circulate around the lens.
Prior to the ICL procedure, your corrective lenses are selected based on your individual prescription. The lens was folded and loaded into a small cartridge which will now be placed through the incision. As the lens is inserted, it will gently unfold within your eye. Once the lens has fully unfolded, the four corners of the lens will be placed behind your iris. This makes the lens invisible to both you and others.
You can proceed in your daily life from the very next day. It’s possible to do mild activities including reading, watching TV or taking a walk. We recommend office work after 2~3 days.
We don’t allow water (from washing) to touch your eyes for about 2 weeks. We recommend that you use a wet cloth when washing your face.
Do not rub your eyes after your surgery for 1~2 months. Keep your hands away from your eyes to avoid placing pressure on your eyes and to avoid infection.
You can do mild exercise (jog, yoga, weight lifting) after 1month. Resume contact sports after 2 month.
