What Is ICL Eye Surgery?

ICL stands for IMPLANTABLE COLLAMER LENS. It is an advanced thin lens that is permanently placed in the eye. ICL is made of a substance that occurs naturally in our body, called Collamer. This procedure requires surgery. In this, ICL is inserted just behind the iris & in front of the eye’s natural lens.

ICL Eye Surgery is performed to treat:

  • Myopia/ near-sightedness
  • Hyperopia/ far-sightedness
  • Astigmatism

Why Opt. For ICL Eye Surgery Over Contact Lenses?

While contact lenses or spectacles can be an immediate response for anyone, it has been found to be very inconvenient for many. ICL Eye Surgery is better option, because of the following reasons:

  • It is a permanent solution.
  • It helps in better vision since it does not move.
  • It can help correct spherical power, as well as cylindrical power.

  • Fall in the age group of 21 to 45 years
  • Are not pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Do not have any eye infection or disease
  • Have a stable vision with a change in the refraction of less than 0.5D in one year

Some more criteria to determine the right candidate-

  • If they have either a myopia correction from -3D to -16D or, a myopia reduction from -16D to -20D
  • Are looking for a procedure that doesn’t create dry eye syndrome
  • Have enough endothelial cell density and adequate anterior chamber depth

Procedure Of ICL Surgery

Before deciding to opt for the surgery, have a proper eye check-up and consultation with the doctor.

Pre-Surgery Preparation

  • Take a proper bath and trim your nails
  • Stop wearing lenses, a week prior to surgery
  • Refrain from wearing makeup, fragrances or any accessories
  • Discuss your previous medications with the doctor
  • Have a family member or friend accompany you to give a ride back home

In case of any complication before surgery, inform the doctor immediately.

During the Surgery

First, the patient is made to lie down on their back, and anesthesia is given. A sedative might be given to help relax. The surgeon then cleans the eye area. The eyelids will be held open with a tool called a lid speculum.

  • A small incision is made in the eye by the surgeon. A lubricant is put on to protect the cornea.
  • Then, the ICL is inserted through the incision. Since the lens is very thin, it might be folded and then unfolded in the eye.
  • Next, the lubricant will be removed. Now, depending on the incision size, stitches might be added.
  • The surgery is finished off by putting eye drops or ointment and covering the eye with a patch or eye shield.
  • This surgery takes hardly 30 minutes. The patient is then monitored closely.

Post-Surgery Precautions

A day after the surgery, the doctor will remove your eye patch and/or shield. The vision might seem blurry after the surgery and may continue to do so for a few weeks. It generally takes 2-4 weeks for the vision to stabilize.

  • Refrain from scratching or rubbing your eyes
  • Always wash your hands before applying eye drops.
  • Avoid use of eye makeup
  • Do not lift any heavy objects
  • Try not to bend your head below waist level, to pick any fallen object
  • Consult the doctor, in case of any severe pain


It is very important to have regular check-ups scheduled after the surgery. Maintain a record of all your observations and complications faced. Annual eye-checkups are highly advised.
