Some people learn they are deemed ineligible for any kind of Laser Vision Correction procedure. At the Herzig Eye Institute, we are pleased to provide other safe options such as Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE)(add link?) and Intraocular Collamer Lens (ICL).
Intraocular Collamer Lens (ICL)
The Intraocular Collamer Lens (ICL) is an option available for patients with high levels of nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), or astigmatism that are too extreme for Laser Vision Correction, and for whom Laser Vision Correction on the cornea is not safe. The Intraocular Collamer Lens (ICL) is a very thin intraocular lens designed to rest in front of the eye’s natural lens, just behind the iris.
Before inserting the lens, the eye is made numb using anesthetic eye drops, and there is very little discomfort associated with the procedure. The surgery typically takes 10 to 15 minutes to perform, and both eyes can be treated on the same day.
