IMPLANTABLE CONTACT LENS

IMPLANTABLE CONTACT LENSES EXPLAINED
What you need to know about implantable contact lenses
If you want clear vision without glasses and contacts but do not qualify for LASIK, implantable contact lenses (ICLs) may be a good option for you.2 Instead of sitting on the surface of your eyes like removable contacts, ICLs work from inside your eyes.
With implantable contact lenses:
- You can see as clearly as you do while wearing contacts (or even more clearly)3, without worrying about the maintenance and hassle of taking them out and putting them back in
- You’ll enjoy great night vision with few side effects
- You can enjoy the peace of mind that you can reverse the procedure if you change your mind4
- You won’t be able to see or feel the lenses — you’ll only notice your vision is clearer and sharper!5
You may be a suitable candidate for vision correction with ICLs if:
- You are at least 21 years old
- You want clear, crisp vision without glasses or removable contact lenses
- You’ve had a stable prescription for at least one year prior to treatment
- You don’t meet the requirements for LASIK because either your prescription is too high or your corneas are too thin
- You want the flexibility to reverse or change if your visual needs change in the future.
Dr. Russell has the experience and skills needed to help you achieve great results with ICLs.
He will explain everything you need to know to make an educated decision about your care, and will explain what you can expect during every step of the treatment plan.
ICLs are clear lenses surgically implanted between the lens (the clear lens inside your eye) and the iris (the colored part of the eye). They do not replace the eye’s natural lens, and you will no longer need visual aids to see clearly. As light passes through the ICL, it properly focuses light onto the retina at the back of the eye.
ICL procedural details
We implant ICLs during an outpatient procedure that takes around 20 minutes or less. We numb your eyes to prevent any pain.
Through a small incision, we insert the ICL into your eye and position it correctly. The incision is designed to heal itself quickly after surgery.
The recovery from ICL treatment is brief, and most patients can resume work and their normal activities as soon as the day after surgery.
If you daydream about what it would be like to enjoy clear, crisp vision without corrective eyewear, but you’re not eligible for laser vision correction, ICLs might be a good option for you. Dr. Russell has helped many patients live more enjoyable and active lives with ICLs, and he is happy to educate you about your options and help you make a decision about your care.
