Contact LensesA revolutionary alternative to traditional contact lenses.

What are ICLs?

An Implantable Contact Lens (ICL) works with the eye to correct vision. Unlike traditional contact lenses that go on the surface of the eye, the ICL is positioned inside the eye between the iris and the natural lens where it stays indefinitely. If your vision changes dramatically, however, it can be removed from the eye.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an Implantable Contact Lens (ICL)?
An Implantable Contact Lens (ICL) works with the eye to correct vision. Unlike traditional contact lenses that go on the surface of the eye, an ICL is positioned inside the eye between the iris and the natural lens where it stays indefinitely. If your vision changes dramatically, however, it can be removed from the eye.
Am I a candidate?
If you are between 21 and 45 and nearsighted, you are an excellent candidate for an ICL. It is preferable that you have no previous ophthalmic surgery or history of ophthalmic disease such as glaucoma, iritis, or diabetic retinopathy.
What if I have thin corneas or dry eye?
The cornea is the curved portion on the front surface of the eye. An ICL does not have any effect on the cornea and may be appropriate if you have thin corneas. ICLs do not cause or contribute to dry eyes. If you have dry eyes, ask your doctor if an ICL may be the best vision correction option for you.
