IMPLANTABLE COLLARMER LENS SURGERY RISKS

Visian Implantable Collamer Lens is FDA approved, which means it has been determined to be a safe and effective procedure. However, as with any surgical procedure, there are certain risks and possible complications. Most complications can be treated, and the risk of vision loss is slim to zero.

Overcorrection And Undercorrection

This can happen when the Implantable Collamer Lens lens is too strong or too weak. In most cases, it can be corrected with corrective eyewear or with an Implantable Collamer Lens replacement.

Halos, Glare And Double Vision 

In any refractive procedure like Lasik, PRK, or Visian Implantable Collamer Lens there is a possibility of residual halos and glare in situations of low-level lighting that can cause difficulty with performing tasks, such as driving, particularly at night or under foggy conditions. These symptoms tend to diminish with time, but it may affect night driving ability.

Increase In Eye Pressure

A rare Implantable Collamer Lens side effect is a sudden rise in eye pressure. This may happen in the first week after surgery. The sooner the doctor is alerted to this complication, the greater the chance of avoiding serious damage.

INFECTION

All surgical procedures mean there is a risk of infection. Severe infection during Implantable Collamer Lens implantation is rare.

Damage To The Crystalline Lens

Since the Implantable Collamer Lens is placed inside the eye, there is a potential risk in touching the eye’s natural (crystalline) lens. While occurring in less than 1.5% of patients, any damage to the natural lens may cause an opacity (cataract) of the lens and, in the most severe case may require removal of the cataractous natural lens and replacement of the natural lens with a synthetic lens.

Loss Of Vision

In extremely rare, there is a possibility of vision loss from all refractive procedures. Typically, losing vision is because of bleeding, severe inflammation, or an untreated infection.
