Ans) One almost never needs to remove these lenses. They have a full lifespan. However, if and when a person gets a cataract as they age, then a cataract by itself needs a lens replacement. If this were needed, then the ICL is removed during cataract surgery, as with today’s cataract lenses, even powers are corrected, hence not needing the ICL it gets replaced with the artificial lens during cataract surgery.
