If you have been told that you are not eligible for laser refractive surgeries like LASIK and its variants, do not lose hope. There is still hope for better vision without glasses. Implantable Collamer Lenses, or ICLs, are actually a boon for patients not eligible for LASIK, and provide them a safe and effective option not only for correcting myopia, but also astigmatism, providing complete freedom from spectacles and contact lenses.
What are ICLs?
Implantable collamer lenses, also known as phakic IOLs, offer permanent vision correction for patients not eligible for LASIK. They have characteristics of both, Contact Lenses and Intraocular Lenses (IOLs). They are implanted inside the eye by a surgery like an IOL, either between the iris and the natural lens of the eye, or on top of the iris. However, unlike an IOL, and like a contact lens, they do not need removal of the natural lens of the eye.
