ICL (IMPLANTABLE CONTACT LENSE) UP TO 50 YEARS
ICL (Implantable contact lenses) for patients up to the age of 45 - 50
Most visual defects such as near-/far-sightedness and corneal irregularity stabilise starting approx. at the age of 21. Virtually all types of defective vision (except presbyopia), regardless of the severity, can be corrected with implantable contact lenses (ICL).
During surgery the ICL is implanted into the eye in front of the patient’s natural lens and behind the iris through a 3mm, self-sealing incision (i.e. requiring no sutures). This lens is not visible from the outside.
Vision recovers normally quickly and pain-free.Though this intervention is known to be safe and efficient, please take always into consideration that it is an intervention at a healthy eye.
