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.

How are ICLs Done?
Typically, patients with myopia or astigmatism who are are at least 21 years old, have a consistent eyeglass prescription, and are in good overall health could be great candidates for this treatment. At Focal Point Vision, ICL surgery takes only 30 minutes or less. Utilizing advanced laser technology, Drs. Maverick and Lehmann create a tiny opening in the eye to place your new lens, which is positioned behind the iris. After a healing period, you will notice an obvious improvement to your sight. Following their ICL surgery, many individuals enjoy clear, precise vision, often achieving 20/40 visual acuity or better.
