At some point, the vision defect can become too severe to use glasses or classic surgeries. That’s when the Implantable Collameral Lens (ICL) come to the rescue. They allow for the correction of even the most extreme levels of defective vision.
The surgeon creates a 3mm wide valvular incision in the eye. Then, with the use of a special device, the lens implant is being moved inside the eye. Next, the implant gets properly placed and mounted between the natural lens and the iris.
The patient lays down on his/her back. The surgeon puts a special, sticky material on the eye and the surrounding area. The eyelids are being held by the speculum. To help with blinking, the surgeon uses special drops.
The ICL is mostly designated for patients with astigmatism and people with dioptre from -23.5 to +10.
For 7 days after the operation, there may be a need to wear a cover over the operated eye. For the first 3 to 4 weeks the patient must take special antibiotic drops to prevent infections. Usually, the patient can go back to work after only a few days.
