What are the Implantable Contact Lens surgery risks?
ICL surgery is otherwise known as intraocular surgery. Our main concern with any intraocular surgery is the risk of infection. The risk of that is about one in 2000 per procedure, and we take every precaution we can to avoid that risk.
If an infection does occur, there are ways and means of treating it. Also, with ICL surgery, because we’re going into the eye, there’s always the risk that you can get a retinal detachment, develop a cataract or glaucoma. These risks are extremely small, and the success rate from ICL surgery is very good with very few side-effects.
