Dr Trevor Gray, the most experienced ICL surgeon in New Zealand, will make small incision at the base of your cornea. The ICL, which is flexible, is folded up and inserted through this incision and behind your iris, where it gently unfolds and remains stable for longterm vision correction.
The ICL is customised to your specific visual requirements and can correct shortsightedness, longsightedness and astigmatism.
Got any questions? We’re here to make things super clear. ICL is a safe and effective procedure provided by our specialist surgeons at our clinic in Auckland. Contact our friendly team. They’re here to help.
Unlike your traditional contact lenses you cannot feel phakic intraocular lenses in your eyes.
The ICL is made of collamer, a highly biocompatible advanced lens material which contains a small amount of purified collagen. Collamer does not cause a reaction inside the eye and contains an ultraviolet blocker that protects the eye.
A big advantage of ICL is that it can permanently correct your vision; yet no natural tissue is removed in any way during the procedure. If for the unlikely reason you need or wish to remove your ICLs in the future, it can be done.
