Eye Lens Replacement Surgery

Some individuals with very high levels of refractive error and/or thin corneas may not be suited to laser refractive surgery. However, that does not mean we cannot assist you to be free of glasses or contact lenses. After consultation with one of our surgeons at WA Laser Eye Centre, you may be recommended an intraocular lens implant. As the experts in eye lens replacement surgery, the solutions we can provide for you are cost-effective and are delivered by leading eye consultants and ophthalmologists in Perth and Australia.

The Implantable Contact Lens (ICL) is a lens implant that is placed behind the iris, adjacent to the natural lens. The ICL remains in place indefinitely but can be replaced or removed should the vision change enough over time. Implantable Contact Lenses provide exceptional quality of vision and are generally recommended for those who either have high refractive errors or do not have the required corneal thickness to undergo LASIK surgery. Rapid recovery and a simple outpatient procedure make this a highly rewarding vision correction option

Day of Your Procedure

Lens implant surgery is performed as a day patient at a private day surgery facility. The surgery typically takes between 15 – 30 minutes using local anaesthetic and a sedative to help relax you. After the procedure you will need someone to drive you home and you will be asked to rest for the remainder of the day. An appointment will be scheduled to see the surgeon the following day and you will be asked to use eye drops to assist the eye to heal. Visual recovery is usually rapid with some activities limited until the eye is completely healed.

As with any surgery there are inherent risks with the Implantable Contact Lens procedure. These risks and benefits will be discussed with you at your consultation to assist you with your decision.
