What is ICL Surgery?

Aier East offers collided ICL, to correct near -sightedness in diopter higher than -8 and far-sightedness in diopter +3 combined with or without astigmastism. These collamer lens have stable optic performance and high biocompatibility – with lifetime durability. It will be custom-made and positioned in the posterior chamber of the eye between the iris and natural Len and will remain permanently in the eye. In cooperation with your natural lens, the ICL redirects the light to focus on the retina correctly and allows patient to see clearly without glasses and contact lenses. The event will discuss suitability of this type of operation and how it can give new hope to those who thought there were not alternatives to laser surgery.
