ICL Surgery IMPLANTABLE CONTACT LENS procedure can be offered to patients who have high myopia or hyperopia that are not candidates for LASIK or PRK. Dr. Taylor uses the Collamer ICLTM, which is an implantable lens, similar to a contact lens. The ICL is placed inside the eye instead of on the cornea (the surface of the eye). The lens is soft and thin like your natural lens, but does not replace it. It therefore does not cause you to lose the natural accommodative reading power of your natural lens. The Collamer ICL produces highly accurate visual correction without removing tissue from your eye, or interfering with your central optical axis. It is completely reversible.
