Phakic Implantable Collamer Lens

Clinical Directorate

Overview

The ICL(Implantable Collamer Lens) is an intraocular lens (IOL) used to correct spectacle power (refractive errors-myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism). The phakic ICL is placed inside the eye between iris and the natural lens. Implantable lenses function like contact lenses to correct nearsightedness. The difference is that phakic IOLs work from within your eye instead of sitting on the surface of your eye.

Correction of High Spectacle Power

The ICL is an intraocular lens (IOL) used to correct spectacle power (refractive errors-myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism). The phakic ICL is placed inside the eye between iris and the natural lens.

Benefits

  • High Quality of Vision and stable vision in long term
  • Day care procedure with quick recovery time
  • Correct wider range of myopia (-4.0 to -20 d) & astigmatism (1 to 4d)
  • Biocompatible – Biologically quite in eye due to Collamer copolymer composition
  • Small Incision/ Foldability & fast recovery
  • Removable – Does not permanently alter the eye’s structure of shape. One of the important advantages of the ICL is that while it can permanently correct your vision, in the unlikely event that an ICL patient experiences negative side effects after surgery, the lens can be removed and/or replaced if necessary. Also, concerns involving the cornea typically do not apply to the Visian ICL, as no natural tissue is removed or changes (reshaped) in any way during implantation
  • Ideal for patients where Lasik was refused, for example due to thin cornea or very high numbers

Clinical trial patients reported over 99 percent vision satisfaction
