Collamer Lens Implant (ICL) (Ophthalmology - Eye Surgery)
Body Area: Head / Neck
Body Parts: Eyes
Symptoms: Sensitivity to Light
The Collamer Lens is an Implantable Contact Lens (ICL) made of a soft material called Collamer. This is an alternative to LASIK surgery and may be a better option for those whose eyes do not allow for the surgery. If you want to shed your dependence on eye glasses or contact lenses, but you have thin corneas, are extremely near sighted or have another condition preventing you from benefitting from LASIK, ICL might be the option for you.
