WHAT IS IMPLANTABLE CONTACT LENS (ICL)
Implantable contact lenses are usually reserved for people with very high refractive errors (e.g. those above 1000 degrees), or people who are not suitable for LASIK due to high degrees or very thin corneas. For people with very high degrees, night vision phenomena (e.g. haloes and starbursts) tend to be more obvious. In these patients, implantable contact lenses may have the advantage that these visual symptoms are not as noticeable compared to LASIK surgery.
