Commonly Asked Questions:
How soon after surgery will I see well?
Most ICL patients see quick, dramatic improvements in their eyesight,
with 80 - 90% of their vision restored within the first 24 hours. Additional
gradual improvements will continue during the first few weeks.
Will refractive surgery hurt?
During the procedure, a strong topical anesthetic is used to numb the
eye. Generally, only pressure is felt during the procedure.
Will I still need my glasses or contacts?
The goal of refractive surgery is to reduce your dependence on glasses
and/or contact lenses, but ICL patients still may benefit from reading
glasses or distance glasses when they desire perfect near or distance
Will my insurance cover ICL?
Most health care coverage considers ICL surgery an elective surgical
procedure and does not cover it.
