ICL FAQs; Frequently Asked Questions about the ICL, and their Answers by Dr Khalil
- The Visian ICL is capable of correcting a wide range of nearsightedness without the need to remove corneal tissue.
- When properly implanted, the ICL provides predictable results and quality of vision due to its position inside the eye, as well as its optical characteristics.
- The lens is made of a biocompatible lens material called Collamer which is well tolerated by the eye.
If there are major changes in your vision, the Visian ICL can easily be removed and replaced, or another procedure can be done at any time. With the ICL, one can still wear glasses or contact lenses if necessary and may even be able to have LASIK or another refractive procedure to fully correct their vision. The ICL does not prevent or help presbyopia, or the need for reading glasses due to age.
