It has been around 6 years that I have been using soft lenses but at the time being I cant keep on with them any more and wanted to have laser surgery . I can t for my nearsightedness does not allow me so ( 11.00 DIO). Recently I have found myself with some eye allergic problems ( not due to the lenses). Redness in the corner of the eyes. Medication with Zaditor, and Artelac does not come to a satisfied result. I am to be the candidate of the implantable lens.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Allergic conjunctivitis is not a contraindication to implantation of intraocular lens. You need to confirm if it is only allergy or other causes like autoimmune disorders etc. If you have near sightedness there are various treatment options like LASIK, PRK etc. which can be used to provide significant improvement in distant vision with minimal need for spectacles or any kind of lens. Consult your Doctor about these options.

Hello, welcome to healthcaremagic. ICL is not affected by allergy. But you need to confirm with your doctor wether it is just the allergy or it could be due to decreaing vision or some other cause. People can develop allergy to lenses as well at times. Wish you good health.

No, ICL is implanted inside the eye so external Ocular allergies will not interfere the ICL or its results
