Femto LASIK is the recent and advanced ocular laser technology. Blade-free LASIK Eye Surgery is a leap ahead of Traditional LASIK Surgery where a Femtosecond laser is used to create a precise flap, while in the Traditional blade LASIK technique, the flap is made by hand. Once the flap has been created, the Ophthalmologist uses the excimer laser waves to treat the refractive error.

  • Looking at a distant light source for less than a few minutes is sufficient for this procedure.

IPCL or Implantable Phakic Contact Lens is most suitable for the patients who cannot undergo LASIK or PRK due to thin corneal profile or extreme refractive error. These lenses correct the refractive error and eliminate the need for spectacles.

Unlike contact lenses, IPCLs are surgically implanted directly into the eye. These lenses are designed to match with the shape of an individual’s eye perfectly. The lens is neither visible nor causes any discomfort to the patients. IPCL eye surgery is safe, painless, and reversible and has proved to be effective in most cases, including presbyopia. The surgery requires proper planning and implantation to deliver best results.

WHY CHOOSE IPCL EYE TREATMENT?

IPCL is similar to a contact lens which is inserted into the eye through a tiny 2.8 mm incision. These intraocular lenses rectify the long-range of myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism (cylindrical power) and presbyopia (both distance and near vision). IPCL offers a high-quality vision and corrects refractive power, enhancing the quality of vision. It is foldable and thus, can be inserted through a small incision which ultimately ensures faster healing. Unlike other laser surgeries, it is possible to remove an IPCL in future, if needed.

BENEFITS OF IPCL

  • No removal of corneal tissue
  • It involves no blood loss is a painless procedure and requires no hospitalization.
  • Offers an excellent high-quality vision
  • The process takes about 8-10 minutes per eye
  • Recovery is fast and patients can go back to work within 1-2 days of the surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any limitations of ICL implant surgery?

ICL is an excellent way to get rid of glasses. Though it can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, it tends to have certain limitations like ICL surgery is suited for patients with extreme refractive power. Besides, depending on one’s power, glasses may still be required for sharpest vision, especially for night driving or other activities performed in low light, etc.

What happens post LASIK eye surgery?

LASIK is a day care procedure and therefore, post-surgery you are allowed to go home on the same day. Antibiotic and anti-inflammatory drops are administered along with temporary padding over the eyes so as to avoid any kind of eye infection. The whole procedure takes around 30 minutes only. Visual recovery may vary from a few hours to a few days until it gets stabilized. However, you will be allowed to return to your normal activities within 2-3 days following surgery. Follow-up and aftercare visits are to be adhered strictly as per your surgeon’s directions.

Explain the ICL procedure?

At Sharp Sight (Group of Eye Hospitals), ICL procedure is performed by our team of experienced surgeons. Generally, initial check-up confirms the patient’s suitability, which is then followed by a series of eye tests and examinations. If one decides to go ahead with the treatment, the lenses are made to the exact specifications. During the day of ICL implantation, local anesthetics will be used to numb the eye, followed by which the lens is inserted through a small incision. As a precautionary measure, the lenses are implanted one at a time, which means once the first eye has fully settled, the second eye receives its ICL.

What is an Implantable Contact Lens (ICL)?

These artificial lenses are very similar to external contact lenses in function with the only difference being that these are to be implanted inside the eye in addition to your natural lens. The Implantable Contact Lens (ICL) is recommended for patients who are not suitable for LASIK or have extreme nearsightedness/farsightedness/ astigmatism.

What is ICL and who is a suitable candidate for ICL?

The ICL or Implantable Collamer Lens is an implantable lens that works with the natural lens of your eye to improve vision. It is a great alternative for patients who cannot have LASIK surgery either due to high prescription, thin corneas or problem of dry eyes. The ICL procedure is well suited for individuals who are not considered to be ideal candidates for LASIK. This includes individuals who have:

  • Thin corneas.
  • Extreme nearsightedness or farsightedness.
  • Not pregnant or nursing woman.
  • Older than 21 years with stable refractive power.

Are there any risks and side effects of LASIK?

With the latest techniques and world-class equipment, LASIK eye surgery is considered to be one of the safest ways to get rid of glasses. But, like any surgical procedure, LASIK surgery too can pose certain side effects which include dry eyes, burning eyes, decreased visual clarity in dim light conditions, etc. However, these side effects are temporary and will eventually disappear as the eye heals.

Can LASIK be performed again?
