    5 extraordinary advantages of Phakic ICL Surgery

    23 August, 2023

    Phakic ICL

    Phakic ICL

    High treatment threshold

    Phakic ICL surgery has a treatment threshold of up to 18 degrees of myopia or 10 degrees of farsightedness, accompanied by 6 degrees of astigmatism with ICL lenses or 30 degrees of nearsightedness or 15 degrees of farsightedness, accompanied by 10 degrees of astigmatism with IPCL lenses.

    Phakic is a surgical method suitable for people with high refractive error

    As a refractive surgery method with the widest treatment spectrum available today, Phakic is the optimal solution for patients with high nearsightedness / astigmatism / farsightedness, unsuitable for laser treatments.

    Preserving corneal structure

    As an important organ, the cornea is not only a determining factor in the ability to perform surgery but also reflects the health of the eye and the quality of vision after surgery. Current laser surgeries (Lasik, Femtosecond Lasik, ReLEx SMILE) all have the common mechanism of changing the curvature of the cornea (parenchymal core removal, corneal erosion) to eliminate refraction.

    To be able to perform laser refractive surgery, the cornea must meet the thickness requirements so that the remaining cornea after surgery is enough to ensure safety for the eye. Therefore, there are many patients who cannot perform laser surgery due to thin cornea and/or high myopia.

    With the mechanism of placing the intraocular lens with high safety behind the iris and in front of the lens, Phakic surgery does not thin or change the corneal structure, so it is a very suitable method for eyes with low vision. thin membrane.

    UV resistant

    UV rays are a major cause of eye diseases such as cataracts, macular degeneration, retinal damage, etc. The reason is that UV rays are an energy of ionizing radiation, capable of ability to ionize atoms or molecules, change or damage the DNA of cells, and in particular affect and alter the protein structure of the eye.\

    The Collamer material that makes up the ICL lenses has built-in UV protection for maximum eye protection. Patients will somewhat less worry when exposed to UV rays outdoors, maximum support for shielding when going out.

    No dry eyes

    On the surface of the cornea, there are nerve glands that conduct tears, to ensure the natural secretion of tears to moisturize the eyes. Impact on the cornea can disrupt these nerve glands, restricting tear production and causing dry eyes.

    Therefore, the less the surgery affects the corneal surface, the less dry the eye will be. Phakic with an incision of only about 2-3mm at the edge of the cornea, minimizing the impact on the nerve glands that conduct tears, so it almost does not cause dry eye symptoms after surgery.

    Phakic surgery provides full HD visual quality after surgery with sharp images even in low light conditions, because it does not affect the cornea but uses intraocular lenses to correct refractive errors.
