Phakic Intraocular Lenses (ICLs)
Phakic Intraocular Lenses(Phakic IOLs) or Implantable Contact Lenses (Phakic ICLs),are the state-of-the-art solution for addressing refractive errors. Designed to be discreetly inserted within the eye, phakic ICLs offer a remarkable alternative to glasses or contact lenses, delivering sharper, clearer vision and freedom from visual aids.
Who is a Candidate for Phakic ICLs?
Phakic ICLs are an excellent choice for individuals seeking freedom from glasses or contact lenses, especially those with moderate to severe refractive errors such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), or astigmatism. A comprehensive eye examination will determine your eligibility for phakic ICLs and ensure that this procedure aligns with your unique vision needs.
Side Effects and Risks
As with any surgical procedure, phakic ICLs carry certain risks. These can include infection, glare, halos, dry eyes, or changes in vision. However, serious complications are rare, and our experienced team will thoroughly assess your candidacy, discuss potential risks, and provide detailed information to help you make an informed decision.
Benefits of Phakic IOLs
Phakic ICLs provide superior quality of vision, correcting a wide range of refractive errors. They offer long-lasting visual improvement and can be an excellent alternative to corneal refractive procedures. These implants are versatile, removable, and adjustable, allowing for potential changes in your vision needs over time.
What to Expect on Procedure Day
On the day of the procedure, you will arrive at our clinic, where our skilled ophthalmologists will ensure your comfort throughout the process. The surgery is typically performed on an outpatient basis, and local anesthesia will be administered to numb the eye. The procedure itself is efficient, taking approximately 30 minutes per eye.
Post-Procedure and Recovery
Following the phakic ICL implantation, you will be given specific instructions for post-operative care and medications to facilitate healing. Most individuals experience a relatively quick recovery, with minimal discomfort. Regular follow-up visits will be scheduled to monitor your progress and ensure optimal outcomes.
