Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL)
Have you been told you are not a candidate for LASIK due to the shape of your cornea or due to a high level of nearsightedness? Implantable Collamer Lenses (ICL) or phakic intraocular lenses may be an option. This lens is placed inside the eye in front of the natural lens, behind the iris, thereby allowing you to retain the ability to focus for near activities. ICL can be a great option for patients that are highly dependent on their glasses and who otherwise thought they were not able to have vision correction surgery.
