Q What is the ICL made of?

Ans. The ICL is made of Collamer®, a highly biocompatible advanced lens material which contains a small amount of purified collagen. Collamer does not cause a reaction inside the eye and it contains an ultraviolet filter that provides protection to the eye.

Collamer is a material proprietary to STAAR Surgical Company, the company that manufactures ICL.
