What is ICL Eye Surgery?

ICL stands for IMPLANTABLE COLLAMER LENS. It is an advanced thin lens which 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 & between the eye’s natural lens and coloured iris.

ICL Eye Surgery is performed to treat:

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

  • 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

  1. First, the patient is made to lie down on their back and anaesthesia 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.
  2. A small incision is made in the eye by the surgeon. A lubricant is put on to protect the cornea.
  3. Then, the ICL is inserted through the incision.Since the lens is very thin, it might be folded and then unfolded in the eye.
  4. Next, the lubricant will be removed. Now, depending on the incision size, stitches might be added.
  5. 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 eye drops, advised by the doctor.
  •       Avoid use of eye makeup
  •       Do not lift any heavy objects
