Is a perfect Procedure to treat high Ametropia and thin Corneas!
The implantable contact lens or implantable Collamer® lens (ICL for short) is the solution for patients with a very high refractive error or a too thin cornea.
The unique Characteristics and Advantages of an ICL
  • Excellent quality of vision for high near-sightedness, high far-sightedness and astigmatism in one step.
  • The collamer® material is very well tolerated with excellent biocompatibility and durability.
  • The ICL is not visible or perceptible in the eye and is positioned in front of the body’s own lens.
  • The lens can remain in the eye for a lifetime
  • The procedure is reversible and the ICL can be removed or replaced if needed.
  • The treatment is permanent and pain free.

The awards took place at the ESCRS meeting in Amsterdam and at our flagship clinic in Hamburg.
  • We are pleased and proud of this beautiful success!
ICL Treatment Steps
ICL treatment steps
This outpatient procedure typically lasts 10 minutes per eye. Eye drop anesthetics create a pain free procedure. The eye is opened with a key-hole incision in the corneal periphery that heals without a suture.
Preparing the Eye
With ICL, each patient receives a tailor-made artificial biopolymer lens implant that has lifetime durability. The ICL lens is flexible and foldable like a contact lens and is inserted into the eye in a matter of seconds with an injector through the small corneal incision.
The implantable contact lens
Unlike a contact lens, ICL is positioned in the posterior chamber of the eye between the iris and natural lens. It remains there permanently and is neither visible nor perceptible. The custom made ICL collamer® lens together with the natural lens redirect the light to focus on the retina with optical precision. After the treatment the patient can see clearly without glasses and contact lenses.
Correction of ametropia by implantation of the ICL
ICL Treatment Process
  • All relevant eye parameters are measured
  • Diagnosis of your suitability for the ICL
  • Consultation on your optimal ICL treatment
1. ICL Suitability Assessment
  • A thorough preliminary medical eye examination is carried out
  • Our ophthalmologist and specialist in refractive surgery explains all aspects of your treatment
  • Detailed measurements are performed
  • The examination lasts approx. 2 hours
  • Cease contact lens wear one week (soft lenses) and two weeks (hard lenses)
  • You will receive an aftercare set for the days after your treatment, its content and medication will be explained to you in detail by our staff.
2. Pre-treatment Examination
  • Bring someone to accompany you
  • Wear comfortable clothes
  • Remove any makeup and avoid wearing perfume
  • Eat a light meal beforehand, please do not smoke.
  • A mild tranquiliser will be offered to you
  • The total duration of this outpatient surgery will be 10 – 15 minutes per eye over 2 days (1 day per eye)
  • The treated eye will be protected by an eye bandage until the next day
3. On the Day of Your ICL Treatment
  • Do not rub your eyes in the days after treatment
  • Antibiotic eye drops are to be used in the first weeks
  • Artificial tear eye drops to be used as required
  • Resume work after 2 – 4 days as needed
  • No sporting activities for 3 days
  • No swimming or sauna for 2 weeks
  • Examinations after 1 day – 1 week – 1 to 3 months
  • Driving can be resumed after doctor’s permission
4. After Your ICL Treatment
The invisible Lens
People with extreme near-sightedness, far-sightedness, astigmatism or a thin cornea are typically not suitable for a laser eye treatment. Surrender to fate and accept glasses? Not with EuroEyes!
With the ICL, a phakic intraocular lens, EuroEyes can offer an excellent alternative treatment for near-sighted patients with a dioptre higher than -8 and for farsighted patients with a dioptre higher than +3 – even if the refractive error is combined with astigmatism. Contrary to a contact lens, the ICL will remain permanently in the eye but can be replaced at any time.
It is positioned between the iris and the natural lens. In cooperation with your natural lens, the ICL thereby ensures that the light is correctly focused on the retina, making it possible for you to see clearly once again. This procedure has been carried out for more than 25 years and is considered a safe method for the treatment of myopia, farsightedness and astigmatism.
And you can be sure that EuroEyes has implanted the most ICL contact lenses in Europe for the fourth year in a row.
