WHAT IS AN IMPLANTABLE CONTACT LENS?
Implantable contact lenses, often shortened to ICL, are a long-lasting solution to correct a wide range of visual acuity issues for individuals who are not ideal candidates for LASIK or PRK. ICL may also be a wonderful alternative for any person who wants sharp, clear vision without the need for glasses or contact lenses. These implants are crafted with biocompatible materials that sync with your natural body chemistry, making them very well-tolerated by the eye. At Focal Point Vision in San Antonio, TX, our board-certified ophthalmologists offer Visian implanted contact lenses to our patients.
