ICL (Implantable Contact Lens) and IPCL (Implantable Phakic Contact Lens) Eye Surgery If you're seeking freedom from glasses or contact lenses and have been searching for a highly effective, alternative vision correction method, ICL (Implantable Contact Lens) and IPCL (Implantable Phakic Contact Lens) surgeries are innovative solutions that could change your life.
Discover a new world of clear, natural vision with us at Laxmi Eye Institute and Hospitals, where excellence in eye care meets cutting-edge technology across our centers in Panvel, Kharghar, Dombivali, and Kamothe.
Alternative to Traditional LASIK: ICL and IPCL surgeries are ideal for individuals who may not be suitable candidates for traditional LASIK due to thin corneas, high refractive errors, or other factors.
High Refractive Error Correction: These procedures are particularly effective for individuals with high levels of nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), or astigmatism.
Clear, Natural Vision: ICL and IPCL surgeries provide the benefit of high-definition vision that can often exceed what is achievable with glasses or contact lenses.
Reversible Option: One notable advantage is the reversibility of these procedures. If your prescription changes over time or if you develop a different eye condition, the implanted lenses can be replaced or removed.
ICL and IPCL surgeries involve the implantation of specialized lenses inside the eye. The procedures encompass three main phases: pre-operative preparations, the surgical procedure itself, and post-operative care.
Your eye surgeon will conduct a comprehensive eye examination to assess your eligibility for ICL or IPCL surgery.
Precise measurements of your eye's size and shape are taken to ensure the selection of the correct lens.
Based on the measurements and your specific prescription, a lens is chosen that will best address your refractive error.
Local anesthesia is administered to numb your eye, ensuring your comfort throughout the surgery.
A small incision is made in the clear front part of your eye (cornea), and the ICL or IPCL lens is implanted. The lens is strategically positioned either in front of or behind your eye's natural lens.
Typically, these procedures do not require sutures as the incisions are small and self-sealing.
Many patients experience improved vision immediately following ICL or IPCL surgery.
Your surgeon may prescribe eye drops and medications to prevent infection and promote healing.
Regular follow-up appointments are crucial to monitor your progress and ensure proper healing.
Individuals with high levels of farsightedness, nearsightedness, or astigmatism may be candidates for ICL or IPCL surgery.
It's essential that your prescription has remained stable for at least one year before considering these procedures.
Candidates should have overall good eye health without underlying conditions that could complicate the procedure.
While ICL and IPCL surgeries can significantly enhance your vision, it's important to have realistic expectations, understanding that perfect vision cannot always be guaranteed.
Clear, Natural Vision: These procedures provide clear, high-definition vision, often surpassing the visual quality achievable with glasses or contact lenses.
Alternative to LASIK: ICL and IPCL surgeries are excellent alternatives for individuals who may not be suitable candidates for traditional LASIK due to various factors.
Reversible Option: One of the unique advantages is the reversibility of these procedures. If your prescription changes or if you develop a different eye condition, the implanted lenses can be replaced or removed.
There is a rare risk of infection following surgery. Adhering to post-operative care instructions is essential to minimize this risk.
Elevated Intraocular Pressure: In some cases, these procedures may lead to increased pressure inside the eye, requiring management.
Immediate Improvement: Many patients experience improved vision immediately or within a short time after the procedure.
Minimal Discomfort: Discomfort is usually minimal and short-lived. You may be prescribed eye drops and medications to aid healing and prevent infection.
Follow-Up Care: Regular follow-up appointments are essential to monitor your progress and address any concerns.
ICL and IPCL surgeries have a high success rate in providing significant vision improvement, particularly for individuals with high refractive errors.
High levels of satisfaction are experienced by patients with these procedures due to their effectiveness and minimal discomfort.
It is essential to have a thorough consultation with your eye surgeon to set realistic expectations, as success rates vary from person to person.
