IPCL or Implantable Phakic Contact Lens is a revolutionary refractive error solution that is well-suited for almost everybody who desires to get rid of spectacles. It’s ideal for patients who are otherwise unsuitable for corneal procedures like LASIK, PRK, etc., due to a thin corneal profile or extreme refractive error.
IPCL unlike contact lenses are surgically implanted directly into the eye and are designed to perfectly match the shape of an individual’s eye. The lens is neither visible nor causes any discomfort. Infact, the IPCL eye surgery is safe, painless, reversible and offers better visual results than any other refractive error procedures. The surgery has proved to be effective in most cases, including presbyopia and it requires proper planning and implantation.
IPCL is similar to a contact lens which is inserted into the eye through a tiny 2.8 mm incision.
This intraocular lens is used for correction of the long range of myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism (cylindrical power) and presbyopia (both distance and near vision).
It offers a high-quality vision. The IPCL eye operation not just corrects refractive power but it also enhances the quality of vision.
It is foldable and therefore, can be inserted through a small incision. Small incision ensures faster healing.
Like other laser vision correction procedures that permanently change vision, it is possible to remove an IPCL in future.
