What is ICL?

Know about ICL Surgery for a clear vision.

Intraocular Lens (IOL) surgery, commonly known as ICL surgery or Implantable Collamer Lens surgery, is a revolutionary and minimally invasive procedure designed to correct vision problems such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. Unlike traditional laser eye surgeries like LASIK, ICL surgery involves implanting a specialized artificial lens directly into the eye rather than reshaping the cornea. 


ICL offers several advantages, including the ability to treat individuals with thin or irregular corneas who may not be suitable candidates for other procedures. During the surgery, a small incision is made, and the flexible, biocompatible ICL is inserted to rest behind the iris. It works in harmony with the eye’s natural lens to correct vision. ICL surgery typically results in rapid vision improvement, reduced risk of dry eyes, and minimal discomfort. 


Patients often experience enhanced visual clarity and reduced dependency on corrective lenses, making it a preferred option for those seeking lasting vision correction. However, like any surgical procedure, it’s essential to consult with an experienced ophthalmologist to determine candidacy and weigh the potential risks and benefits.
