ICL

The ICL

The ICL is a very fine and delicate lens, which is implanted inside the eye over the normal lens to correct vision errors. Dr Khalil use the ICL to correct short sightedness (myopia), long-sightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. Naturally, he performs this after fully judging suitability. The ICL is the best choice he offers to his patients who require ultra-precision in their visual demands. That’s because it gives excellent vision quality when done properly.

What is the ICL?

The ICL (implanted contact lens, implantable collamer lens) is a synthetic lens to be implanted over the normal human lens (phakic intraocular lens). It is inserted between the iris and the eye’s natural lens. The ICL is capable of correcting a wide range of myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism without the removal of corneal tissue.

The ICL is invisible & undetectable!

As the ICL is tiny and soft, it is folded up and injected inside the eye through in seconds through a tiny self sealing opening. Once injected, the ICL unfolds into position in the liquid between the iris and natural lens. ICL corrects the eyesight usually without any further treatment being necessary (the ICL can also be removed or replaced, if required, in another simple procedure).

THE ICL IS IMPLANTED THROUGH A VERY SMALL OPENING IN THE EYE, AND STABIISED IN ITS PLACE WITHIN FEW MINUTES
The ICL provides very predictable refractive outcomes and best quality of vision due to its placement inside the eye, as well as its optical performance. The lens is made of a superior lens material called Collamer® which provides unparalleled biocompatibility and is accepted by the eyes as not being a ‘foreign tissue’. This means that the body does not react or reject the ICL as a foreign body. Other special features of Collamer are its optical clarity and the flexibility and elasticity that allow it to be folded up and then to recover its correct shape in the liquid inside the eye. This lens has been successfully used since 1993, and still have undergone significant improvements since then.
