More about Phakic ICL toric lens

What is ICL?

The intraocular contact lens (ICL) is an optical element similar to a contact lens and it is permanently implanted behind the iris. It does not require any maintenance or exchange. It is a suitable solution for younger patients with high prescription, both plus and minus ones. The advantage is a possibility to change the lens in case the disorder progresses. PHAKIC INTRAOCULAR LENS has excellent optical characteristics.

What are benefits of ICL?

The ICL toric lens is permanent but removable. ICL phakic toric lens is a great alternative where laser eye surgery does not reach. Because the Visian ICL is placed behind the iris, it is undetectable to the naked eye. ICL phakic lens can correct higher refractive errors.

What ICL Lenses do you offer?

ICL is produced by STAAR, a Swiss company, and has been approved for use by the European Union and the US FDA. It is also referred to as VisianICL in some countries. Visian ICL is positioned behind the iris and in front of your natural lens. The Visian ICL (Implantable Collamer® Lens) is one of the latest technological advancements in vision correction technology. The Visian ICL is made from Collamer, a 100% biocompatible material created and used exclusively by STAAR Surgical. This technology is able to treat a large range of refractive error varying by region; it is FDA approved to correct myopia in adults ranging from -3.0D to -15.0D with less than or equal to 2.5D of astigmatism at the spectacle plane and can reduce myopia in adults ranging from greater than -15.0D to -20.0D with less than or equal to 2.5D of astigmatism at the spectacle plane.

How is the ICL surgery performed?

Quite painlessly, the lens is implanted in the operating theatre of the outpatient clinic and the surgery takes about 10 minutes. As the lens is always tailor-made, the implantation is a two-step process. In the first step the patient comes to Prague for a pre-operative examination. Similarly to glasses a deposit for the lens has to be paid before the lens can be ordered, because the lens will be made exactly according to the patients prescription. This first visit can take just 1 day. The patient can fly back home immediately after the examination. After six weeks the lens is ready to be implanted. If only 1 eye is to be treated, the patient stays in Prague 2 days, in case of both eyes the patient stays 4 days.
