ICL™ and Toric ICL™
The ICL implants of the company STAAR in the treatment of myopia and hyperopia for the phakic eye (which has its natural lens) has existed since 1993. Since 2002, Toric ICLs are also available to correct astigmatism.
Thus astigmatism can also be corrected in the case of myopia or hyperopia.
This implant produces excellent post operative results and is the only phakic implant that can correct myopia and astigmatism with a tiny incision of only 3.0 mm
