Implantable Contact Lens (ICL)

Implantable contact lenses (ICLs) correct vision in much the same way that external contact lenses do, except ICLs are placed inside the eye where they reside permanently to improve vision. They are permanent and are not visible to others.

or patients seeking vision correction who have been told that laser vision correction isn’t a good option, there may be a better solution. Factors such as a large refractive error, dry eyes, unusual corneal shape, and thin corneas determine which procedure is appropriate for a particular patient. The good news is Infinity Eye Care Center, a fully accredited surgical facility, has an option that will offer you exceptional quality vision! It’s called the Implantable Contact Lens (ICL).

Lens implants have been in use worldwide for over two decades and are considered a safe and effective solution for those who are dissatisfied with the limitations of glasses and contact lenses and whose vision correction needs fall outside accepted parameters for laser vision correction.

The lenses used for this procedure are similar to small contact lenses that, instead of sitting on the surface of the eye, are placed inside the eye. These lenses are composed of biocompatible materials which provide excellent optical clarity. Once in place, the lens cannot be felt, cannot be seen by the naked eye and requires no maintenance other than a routine, annual visit to your eye doctor.
