Abstract: ICL implantation is to place “ultra-thin lens designed to correct myopia” in the posterior chamber space of the ocular refractive system and fix it in the ciliary sulcus to achieve the purpose of long-term correction of ametropia. Myopia with
more than 600 degrees is high myopia. High myopia has brought a lot of inconvenience to our life, affecting our studies, finding a job, even marriage and love, and may be inherited to future babies. High myopia is also called malignant myopia. Why it is called malignant myopia is because the harm of high myopia is very serious. Xiaobian has sorted out several questions about high myopia that patients often ask. Please collect them quickly! What are the hazards of
high myopia? The risk of posterior scleral staphyloma in high myopia is 77%, and the higher the degree of myopia, the greater the probability of occurrence.
harm 2. Cause retinal choroidal atrophy and degeneration
because the eye axis of high myopia becomes longer and prone to retinal degeneration.
cause retinal choroidal neovascularization. The incidence of subretinal neovascularization in high myopia is as high as 40%, which can directly affect vision.
harm 4. Retinal detachment
in patients with retinal detachment, 70% of patients are myopia, and the proportion of high myopia is very large.
methods for treating high myopia
(1) children with high myopia need mydriatic optometry, eliminate false myopia, and wear frame glasses.
(2) in addition to frame glasses, contact lenses can also be used for correction.
(3) If the rapid extension of the ocular axis leads to the continuous deepening of myopia, posterior scleral reinforcement is needed to stabilize the myopia.
(4) adults can do the myopia correction surgery with ICL intraocular lens implantation.
what is ICL lens implantation
ICL implantation surgery is “designed as an ultra-thin lens to correct myopia” It is placed in the posterior chamber space of the ocular refractive system and fixed in the ciliary sulcus to achieve the purpose of long-term correction of ametropia. Is
ICL lens implantation safe?
ICL lens implantation is a safe and reversible surgical method. However, as an intraocular operation, ICL lens implantation requires higher technology, safety and perioperative management, especially for high myopia.
