Phakic intraocular lens (Implantable collamer lens or ICL) implantation
This is a type
of vision correction surgery that involves placing a thin, prescription lens inside the
eye to correct refractive errors. Unlike traditional contact lenses that sit on the
surface of the eye (cornea), ICLs are surgically implanted between the natural lens and
ICLs are often used to correct moderate to high degrees of nearsightedness (myopia), and in some cases, astigmatism.
They are suitable for individuals who may not be good candidates for laser corneal eye surgeries, such as those with thin or weak corneas or dry eyes.
ICL surgery is a valuable option for individuals seeking an alternative to glasses or contact lenses. However, as with any surgical procedure, it is important to consult an experienced ophthalmologist (eye specialist) to assess individual candidacy and to discuss the potential risks and benefits of ICL surgery.
