Implantable Collamer Lens or ICL is a refractive surgery just like Lasik surgery for correcting reflective errors, however, in ICL an artificial lens is permanently implanted over the natural lens and does not use laser. ICL eye surgery is very effective for the treatment of myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism. ICL surgery is considered an alternative treatment for people who cannot opt for laser eye surgery.
ICL is a surgical process where the surgeon places the artificial lens between the natural lens and coloured iris. The implanted lens works to direct the refracted light on the retina, producing a clearer vision.
The ICL is made up of plastic and collagen called Collamer. ICL lens is a phakic intraocular lens, here Phakic means placing the artificial lens without taking out the natural lens.
ICL operation is not always used to correct the vision problems instead sometimes it is used to reduce the dependency of a person on glasses or contact lenses.

Benefits of ICL surgery
In addition, to improve the vision, ICL has many other benefits also like:
The artificial lens placed in the eyes works to protect the eye from problems like dry eyes. It is a protection against chronic dryness.
ICL can provide a person with good night vision along with better vision during the daytime.
ICL operation is capable to fix the vision problem of nearsightedness which cannot be corrected effectively via other eye surgeries
ICL is meant to be permanent but if the situation demands it can be removed too
Recovery after ICl eye surgery is very fast because there is no tissue damage or tissue removal
ICL is a blessing for the candidates who are not qualified for laser surgery
