What is ICL surgery?
“A premium alternative to laser eye surgery with better vision and longer lasting results.”
ICL or implantable contact lens gives a vision correction with greater clarity, depth and dimension than other surgical options.
Refractive surgical procedures can give patients marked improvements in visual acuity (restoring 20/20 vision) but the quality of the vision may very greatly with different procedures. ICL provides an unparalleled level of correction. You can enjoy sharp, clear vivid sight with depth, dimension and clarity.
ICL surgery gives more stable and better clarity in most cases than LASIK can, with far less risk of dry eyes or corneal changes so discuss your options with us and be fully informed.
The amazing part is that the procedure takes 5 minutes and is minimally invasive. The procedure involves anaesthetic eye drops - no needles and no injections. ICL gives immediate results with vast improvement in vision quality. The swift procedure and painless recovery often leaves our patients speechless - it's genuinely a "Wow!" moment.
