ICL

The ICL (Implantable Contact Lens) is a state-of-art refractive error solution that is ideal for anyone who has the need or desire for removal of power with high quality of vision correction. ICL or Implantable Contact Lens, as the name suggests, is a kind of lens which is implanted into the eye and does not require frequent removal like a normal contact lens. This phakic intraocular lens has numerous advantages including its correction of the widest range of myopia (near sightedness), hyperopia (far sightedness) and astigmatism (cylindrical power).

Both LASIK and ICL (Implantable Collamer Lens) can be used to correct nearsightedness. However, ICL is frequently recommended for our Ahmedabad area patients with a very high degree of nearsightedness(High power more then 8 D) who may not be a good candidate for LASIK.

The ICL is an implantable lens that works with the natural lens of your eye to improve your vision. During the procedure, the lens is inserted between your iris and your natural lens thru a tiny incision that usually does not require any stitches. It can be a great option for patients who cannot have LASIK surgery because of high prescription (-3 and up to -15), thin corneas or dry eyes.

Patients with astigmatism can also be candidates for this procedure. If necessary, Dr. Modi can treat the astigmatism with LASIK shortly after the lenses are in place and healed or you can go for Toric ICL lens implantation.

Like LASIK, both eyes can be done on the same day. The procedure takes approximately 15 minutes per eye. However, your visit on the day of surgery will take about 4 hours including pre and post-op care. Recovery from an ICL procedure is relatively quick. You can expect to return to work within a couple of days of surgery.

While LASIK is a great procedure for most patients, Ahmedabad is fortunate to have one of the most experienced ICL surgeons in the country. Even if you have been told you are not a candidate for LASIK surgery due to high prescription, thin corneas or dry eye, you may still be able to enjoy great vision. Only a consultation at Modi Eye Care Centre will give you the information you need to determine your best option for vision correction.

Visian ICL gives a corrective procedure option to those with moderate to severe myopic vision problems. Many patients don’t meet the requirements for Lasik candidacy because their prescription is too high or they have thin corneas. ICLs provide them a safe and effective treatment.
