Whether you’re short-sighted, long-sighted or with astigmatism, implantable lens surgery could be the best option for you.
Implantable lens surgery is highly effective in treating short-sighted and long-sighted prescriptions. Evidence suggests that 95% of patients are satisfied with the procedure, and it can be reversed if required.
In implantable lens surgery, lenses are implanted in the eye for vision correction without taking the natural lens out. There are two types of implantable lens – one goes in front of the pupil and is called an Artisan or Verysise lens. The other, more commonly used lens, is called the Visian ICL and is implanted behind the pupil. Both are made of synthetic memory polymer material like a contact lens, and are well tolerated inside the eye.
