Implantable Collamer lens (ICL)

Further to my recent comments about the Visian Collamer lens, there has been a study looking at this lens.

This was recently also mentioned in Mivision.

Basically in this study, 41 eyes were followed for 8 years, looking at quality of vision, endothelial cell loss, stability of refraction, complications and cataract formation.

Cataract was found in just less than 5% and is known to be a potential risk. The patients that developed cataract however, had uneventful cataract surgery with good vision afterwards. No one lost vision. Endothelial cell loss was only 6.2% at 8 years.

The article highlighted how the  ICL is a good option for patients instead of LASIK  with good outcomes and few complications.
