Implantable Contact Lens
This procedure is a great alternative for people who are not suitable for the well-known LASIK or other laser refractive surgery. We can treat high myopia (short-sightedness) and hypermetropia (long-sightedness) in addition to astigmatism. Some reasons people may not be suitable for laser treatment, include thin corneas, dry eyes, or large pupils. Implantable Contact Lenses (ICL) are like a permanent contact lens, except that the lens is placed inside the eye, rather than on the surface. The procedure is a day surgery. Recovery is about 48 hours off work and one week off strenuous exercise.
