What is an implantable contact lens and how does it work?

An ICL, or implantable contact lens, is a very thin acrylic lens which goes into your eye. It sits between your natural lens and the Iris of your eye. It works similar to a contact lens that you put on your cornea. It directs the rays of light onto your retina and gives you perfect vision for all distances without the need of constantly putting on glasses or contact lenses.
