An implantable contact lens (ICL) or Intra Ocular Lens (IOL) is a miniature contact lens that is implanted into the eye to correct focusing errors. Implantable Contact Lens eye surgery can be undertaken by our highly experienced surgeons at Elite Eye Hospital, often in cases where laser vision correction may not be appropriate.For a minority of patients an intraocular lens implant may be the most appropriate solution for vision enhancement as not everyone is eligible for laser vision correction. This may either be because of extreme refractive error (short sight, long sight and/or astigmatism), unusual corneal findings or other eye health concerns (e.g. cataract)
An Intra Ocular Lens (IOL) is simply a small, artificial lens implanted inside the eye to correct focusing errors. There are two different types of lens implants procedures. The natural crystalline lens inside the eye can be replaced with an IOL (refractive lens exchange) or an additional lens can be implanted into the eye (anterior IOL).
