Implantable Contact Lens
For those whose are poor LASIK candidates due to a correction which is too high or a cornea which is too thin – you may be an ideal candidate for the implantable contact lens. In this procedure, the lens is slipped, through a small incision, behind the iris. The procedure is typically comfortable and takes approximately 15 minutes. Vision results are typically outstanding, even the day after surgery. Unlike LASIK, there are no, or only minimal, changes to the shape of the cornea. Also, due to the relative lack of corneal change, the chance of dryness after ICL surgery is minimal. Finally, unlike LASIK – where corneal tissue is removed resulting in a permanent effect – the implantable contact itself can be completely removed.
Dr. Richheimer has performed the ICL proceedure for active professional athletes, and many working professionals – including multiple doctors.
