Implantable Contact Lens (ICL)

The implantable contact lens is a type of phakic intraocular lens (PIOL) used in the correction of eyes with high refractive errors, especially if the cornea is thin. PIOL are artificial lenses which are implanted in front of the natural lens of the eye and functions as a “contact lens” within the eye affording high quality (high definition) vision. PIOLs are especially useful in certain patients who are not suitable for which laser refractive surgery like LASIK. At Eye & Retina Surgeons, the Visian Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL; Staar® Surgical Company, USA) is available for patients who require phakic intraocular lens implantation.

The Visian Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL; Staar® Surgical Company, USA) is a one-piece foldable phakic intraocular lens which is implanted just in front of the natural crystalline lens as a day surgery procedure. This PIOL requires a sutureless sub-3 mm corneal incision for insertion allowing fast visual rehabilitation and eliminating the need for hospital admissions. The Visian ICL is able to correct myopia of -3.0 D to -20.0 D (US approval). Toric models of this PIOL are also available. Toric models are able to correct both myopia and astigmatism simultaneously, eliminating the need for subsequent procedures to correct astigmatism.
