If you suffer from nearsightedness or astigmatism, you may be a candidate. If you are over 18 years old and in good health with no history of glaucoma or cataracts, ICL may be a viable option for you. Every patient is unique and our surgeons methodically examine each individual to determine the correct vision procedure. To identify if ICL is appropriate for you, schedule an appointment for a consultation.
As with any elective surgery, there are risks that are dependent upon the patient. Reeve Woods Eye Center strives to provide excellence in care and will review all risks and rewards prior to your procedure, providing you with an opportunity to make an educated decision that is right for you.
Patients of Reeve Woods Eye Center are given a topical anesthetic to numb the eye, so there is no pain. During the procedure itself, patients may experience a sensation of pressure and sedation by the intravenous monitored anesthesia care.
The ICL procedure takes about 10 minutes and is relatively painless.
