Generally, lens and ICL implnatation is suitable and becomes the first and best choice in high degrees of refractive errors (short-, long-sightedness and astigmatism. Additionally, ICL implantation is suitable for moderate and low errors if LASIK is not suitable because of thin corneas or due to other reasons.

Lens or ICL implantation is suitable and can become the best options in several situations ​

  • ICL implantation can fix severe nearsightedness that can’t be corrected with other visiojn correction options.
  • Unlike laser viosn correction, which usually result in some form of dry eye in the first few months, ICL implantation is less likely to cause dry eyes.
  • The ICL provides excellent night vision.
  • Recovery after ICL implantation is usually quick because it does not involve tissue removal.
  • Although the ICL is meant to be permenanent and is rightly so in the vast majority of patients who undergo this vision correction procedure, it can be removed rather easily in the very rare occasions when needed.

ICL IMPLANTATION IS DONE THROUGH A VERY SMALL OPENING IN THE EYE, AND STABIISED IN ITS PLACE WITHIN FEW MINUTES

ICL implantation steps by Dr Ahmad Khalil in Cairo Egypt

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.
