With ICLs, patients can experience independence from glasses and contacts

A great laser eye surgery alternative for those who don’t qualify
  • ICL is an eye surgery to correct myopia and/or astigmatism, with >99% satisfaction, and has already been performed on millions of eyes
  • Patients with a stable eye test between 21 and 60 years old, with myopia between -0.5 D and -20.0 D, and astigmatism between 0.5 D and 6.0 D, are the best candidates.
  • An ICL (Implantable Contact Lens) is a contact lens that corrects the refractive error of your eyes and is placed just in front of your own eye lens. It is a quick procedure that is also reversible: the lens can always be removed if necessary.
  • Simply put, ICL is a removable lens implant that offers an alternative to the already existing laser eye treatments such as FemtoLASIK and SMILE.
  • ICL is a lens also known as a ' phakic lens '. 'Fakisch' means that the eye's natural lens stays in place. The ICL is a posterior chamber implant that is inserted through a small incision into the eye behind the iris (the colored part of the eye) and in front of the natural lens to correct nearsightedness and/or astigmatism.
Advantages of ICL
  • Absence of dry eyes : since the cornea is not operated on, there is no chance of developing dry eyes.
  • Reversible surgery: Unlike laser treatment, the lens can be removed from the eye again, thus reversing the surgery.
  • Rapid intervention and equally rapid healing: Because the implant has an insertion size of only 3.2 mm, we can greatly optimize the procedure and the healing time. The procedure is also painless due to the numbing medication. Patients can usually expect surgery to last up to 15 to 20 minutes and most people can resume their daily activities after as little as 1 day, with clearer vision.
  • No surgical procedure can be performed without risk. Even if the risk is very minimal, complications from very trivial to very serious can be present.
  • Among the possible consequences of these interventions are classified, among other things, the perception of halos, a tendency to dazzle, a reduction in visual acuity even with correction, trouble with night vision, double vision, an internal eye infection, a distortion of the images, the development of cataracts. or glaucoma, a low-hanging eyelid. These are secondary effects, which are not desired, but are specific to the type of intervention.
  • In exceptional cases, as with any eye surgery, the complications can become serious, leading to loss of vision, or even loss of an eye. This possibility is nevertheless so exceptional that the frequency is difficult to evaluate.
  • The fact that this lens is 'FDA'-approved in the United States and has already been placed on more than 2 million eyes worldwide is a testament to its safety.

Of course, there are also alternatives for an ICL lens. For myopia, farsightedness and astigmatism, laser treatments exist, such as lasek, femtolasik, smile, en presbyond.Once you are older than 48 years, a multifocal lens implant, especially with farsightedness, can be considered. You can then often choose between a strong and a weaker multifocal lens implant. The choice between the two is usually made after the exploratory interview during the preliminary investigation.

  • The ICL operation is performed on an outpatient basis. This means that the patient undergoes the surgery and leaves the hospital or clinic the same day. The procedure itself usually takes a maximum of 15 minutes. The patient must be taken home by someone after surgery. A light topical or local anaesthetic is administered. There is very little discomfort during or after surgery. Eye drops or medication may be prescribed and a visit with your eye doctor is usually scheduled the day after surgery.
  • The day after the operation you will come for a check-up and the shell will be removed. In the first 3 weeks after surgery you should use anti-inflammatory eye drops. The next check will take place after 3 weeks. Then the final refraction of the eye is also determined. Afterwards you should come for an annual check-up. To prevent the lens from coming into contact with your own cornea, you should absolutely not rub your eyes hard after the procedure.
  • Because the Collamer ICL provides very accurate vision corrections without removing eye tissue, the quality of vision can be even better than after a laser treatment. Indeed, treatment is unaffected by the corneal variability that may occur after the laser-removed tissue has been repaired.
  • Meanwhile, this lens has already been implanted in millions of eyes. The satisfaction rate was 99%.
