ICL is a specialty customised lens placed in your eye which works with your natural lens to correct your vision. It’s been termed BEYOND LASIK because unlike LASIK there is no corneal destruction and is thus reversible. This means less or even none of the short and Long term side effects of LASIK.
EVO Visian ICL™ is a Swiss lens that has a 20 years history worldwide. Since Dr Lee's return to Singapore in 2009, the number of EVO Visian ICLs implanted has increased significantly.
EVO Visian ICL™ is made of Collamer, which is similar to collagen. It is biocompatible and is never rejected by the body because collagen is found in our bodies naturally. Rather than altering the shape of the cornea by thinning the corneal tissue as in LASIK, the Visian ICL™ is easily inserted into your eye behind the iris through a tiny self-healing wound of 2.5 mm. The cornea where light enters the eye is kept pristine. Visian ICL™ is made of a soft foldable material called Collamer, which is similar to collagen. Hence the lenses are bio-compatible.
