Intraocular contact lenses
As a posterior chamber lens, implantable contact lenses (ICL = Intraocular Contact Lens or IPCL = Intraocular Phakic Contact Lens) are an optimal alternative in cases of severe to extremely severe visual defects which cannot be corrected with laser surgery.
With this procedure, the body’s own lens is retained and the artificial lens is implanted behind the iris. Additionally, the cornea usually remains untouched. This means that the operation is reversible and the lens can be removed again if necessary. In addition, further adjustment is possible by changing the lens or in combination with a LASIK operation.
