ICL surgery – Implanted Contact Lens

What types of conditions will benefit from ICL Surgery ?

ICL Surgery is when implanted contact lens (otherwise known as phakic IOLs) are used to correct very high refractive errors where laser treatment such as LASIK or PRK may be unsuitable. Like your eye’s natural lens, an ICL focuses light that comes into your eye through the cornea and pupil onto the retina, the sensitive tissue at the back of the eye that relays images through the optic nerve to the brain. Like the lenses of prescription eyeglasses, your IOL will contain the appropriate prescription to give you the best vision possible.

Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Laser Eye Surgery

Huffington Post recently published the article “Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Laser Eye Surgery” on the 11th of June 2014.

Extract from Article:

If you’ve just about had it with the glasses and contact lenses, perhaps you’re considering laser eye surgery to correct your vision. But what does the procedure really entail? What are the risks? And will you have guaranteed perfect vision afterward?

We asked Dr. Sonia Yoo, M.D., professor of ophthalmology at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute at the University of Miami Health System, and Dr. James Salz, M.D., a Los-Angeles based refractive and cataract surgeon and clinical spokesperson for the American Academy of Ophthalmology, to answer the questions we’ve always wondered about getting corrective vision surgery — specifically, LASIK, which is undergone by about 700,000 Americans a year.

Cataract Surgery after Laser Refractive Surgery

“Cataract Surgery after Laser Refractive Surgery”

at Australasian Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery Annual Meeting July 2013

by Dr Margaret Kearns (presenter), Dr Richard Smith (co-author)

Abstract:

This study examined refractive outcomes of cataract surgery in subjects who had previously had laser vision correction. In these cases it is more difficult to predict correct IOL power pre-op.

The Haigis-L formula yielded fair results.
