http://www.edow.com/images/img-iol.jpgPhakic IOLs, also known as implantable contact lenses or ICLs, are safe and effective for vision correction, offering an alternative to laser surgery. In fact, some studies have shown that patients with higher order aberrations may achieve clearer vision with an ICL than with LASIK. About 85 percent of patients achieved 20/20 vision or better with an ICL while 95 percent achieved 20/40 or better. And, since the natural lens is left in place, the procedure is reversible.
At EDOW, phakic IOL surgery has been available through FDA clinical trials for two years.
