What symptoms do you have before implantable contact lens surgery?

Dr. Matthew Russell explains the symptoms you may experience before implantable contact lens (ICL) surgery.

Before undergoing intraocular contact lens surgery, most people are frustrated with the impact of wearing glasses or contact lenses.

Most people who are having ICLs inserted are people who have very high prescriptions. That means they have very thick glasses to correct their vision, and they are some of the people who struggle most with the disability of high levels of focusing error and have the most trouble managing without glasses. They are highly dependent on their glasses to do simple day to day activities. Without them, they really can’t see in most cases. People before ICL surgery are really severely disadvantaged by the severity of their vision impairment.
