What are the advantages of ICL lens implantation compared with laser myopia surgery?

Abstract: laser myopia surgery is suitable for patients aged 18 ~ 50, myopia within 100 ~ 1200 degrees, hyperopia or astigmatism within 600 degrees; ICL lens implantation can correct myopia up to 2300 degrees (monocular), which is an ideal choice for many patients with high myopia. In addition, hyperopia can be corrected within 1000 degrees and astigmatism can be corrected within 600 degrees.

Many myopia friends are always hesitant when doing myopia surgery. Do you know whether to choose laser myopia surgery or ICL lens implantation? Which is better? In fact, the choice of myopia surgery is based on the results of preoperative examination. The surgery suitable for patients is the best, and the postoperative visual quality can be guaranteed. ICL lens implantation and laser myopia surgery are two different surgical methods. The former is posterior chamber lens implantation with lens, also known as implantable ophthalmoscope, and the latter is corneal refractive surgery. In terms of surgery itself, ICL lens implantation has the following advantages:

and

have a wider range of correction: laser myopia surgery is suitable for people aged 18 ~ 50, myopia within 100 ~ 1200 degrees, hyperopia or astigmatism within 600 degrees; ICL lens implantation can correct myopia up to 2300 degrees (monocular), which is an ideal choice for many patients with high myopia. In addition, hyperopia can be corrected within 1000 degrees and astigmatism can be corrected within 600 degrees.

No need to cut cornea: ICL lens implantation is not affected by corneal thickness and curvature of myopia patients, and there is no need to cut cornea or damage eye tissue. Laser myopia surgery needs to cut the cornea, so there are requirements for corneal thickness. This determines that myopia patients with thin cornea and high degree are not eligible for laser myopia surgery, but they can choose ICL lens implantation.

and

have reversibility: ICL lens implantation has reversibility, which is unmatched by laser myopia surgery or any other surgery. Patients can take out or replace the lens when necessary, and can also re wear frame glasses or hidden glasses to avoid worries at home.

ICL lens implantation and laser therapy are two different methods of myopia correction. Patients can choose the appropriate operation method according to their own situation to achieve satisfactory postoperative visual quality.
