Step 1: We anaesthetise the eye using a topical anaesthetic drop. We typically perform the surgery on both eyes on the same day.
Step 2: We dilate the pupil and make a small incision in the cornea.
Step 3: We place the ICL between the normal lens and the iris.
Step 4: Patients are seen immediately after surgery to ensure the lens is sitting correctly.
Step 5: We will prescribe patients antibiotic eye drops for one week, and topical steroid eye drops for approximately 2 to 4 weeks.
