Implantable Contact Lenses

Also known as ‘Phakic IOL’, this treatment is generally recommended for individuals who are under 40, and do not need reading glasses.

Unlike your traditional contact lenses that are positioned directly on the surface of the eye, an implantable contact lens sits inside the eye, between the iris and your natural lens to correct your vision.

  • You must be over the age of 30 with a PLUS prescription to be considered for IMPLANTABLE CONTACT LENS surgery.
  • You must be over the age of 21 to be considered for IMPLANTABLE CONTACT LENS surgery if you have a high MINUS prescription.

An implantable contact lens is several times smaller than your average contact lens. This also contains a UV blocker, which will prevent UV rays from entering the eyes and reduce your risk of eye disorders.

The great thing about ICL’s is that they are not permanent and you do have the choice to have them removed or replaced if clinically necessary.


Many people think that it's not possible to have a refractive correction, but this is simply not the case. We are able to offer a toric version of the ICL's even if you’ve got an astigmatism and you are looking at implantable contact lenses as a solution to correct your vision.
