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.
“Astigmatism Correction with Acrysof T2 Toric IOL”
at 18th European Society of Cataract & Refractive Surgeons (ESCRS) Winter Meeting in Ljubljana, Slovenia
by Dr Richard Smith (presenter), Dr Margaret Kearns (co-author)
This study indicated that accurate correction of astigmatism is possible down to +/- 0.5 Dioptre. This is an important element in achieving better vision from cataract surgery.
European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery Winter Meeting – Ljubljana, Slovenia 2014
Presentation: “Results of Astigmatism Correction with Alcon Acrysof T2 IOL”
Authors: Dr Richard Smith (presenter), Dr Margaret Kearns (co-author)
Abstract: This study indicated that accurate correction of astigmatism is possible down to +/- 0.5 Dioptre. This is an important element in achieving better vision from cataract surgery.
“Sydney Eye Specialist Centre (FOCUS), Building Design and I.T. Systems Development”
at Australian Day Hospitals Association Annual Meeting Gold Coast August 2013
by Dr Richard Smith (presenter), Dr Margaret Kearns, Georgina Wilson, Marcus Wilson (co-authors)
We described the design of our award-winning Kingsford day surgery centre and the implementation of integrated computer programs to create a paperless environment. These systems embrace financial transactions and accounting, electronic medical records, payroll, staff rostering, product ordering, quality management and accreditation compliance.
“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)
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.
