Implantable contact lenses (ICLs) offer an exciting alternative for those suffering with moderate to severe nearsightedness that are not candidates for laser vision correction. A number of people are poor candidates for LASIK due the thinness or shape of their cornea or previous scarring that would affect the lasers affect on the cornea. They may also be an option for people who cannot have LASIK because of dry eyes.
You might think of ICLs as semi-permanent contact lenses placed inside the eye to add focusing power. But unlike contact lenses you do not have to take them on and off and you do not feel them. They stay in place with no maintenance to give consistently improved vision. Unlike with cataract surgery the lens implants don’t replace the natural lens. They are actually placed in front of the natural lens and work in combination with the eye’s natural lens to focus light to create a clear image.
There are several advantages of the ICL implants:
- o They can correct very high amounts of near-sightedness
- o Recovery is very quick with few restrictions
- o They can be removed or replaced if needed
- o They may be a good option if someone is a poor candidate for LASIK
- o There is a very high satisfaction rate with this lens
