Check FDA to see if your ser number is on the recall list. I had my Lens company called me to ask for my ser number, If a company has several lens recall why would I want this product in my eye.

cataract surgeny is a billion dollars business.

This your eyesight we are talking about not a store return.

Do a lot of research... go to FB type in Negative Dysphotopsia.

Doctors  recieve what is called samplers and you are the guinea pig

if your doctor selects you to inplant the samplers.

      If you suffered complications after ICL surgery, we invite you to join the discussion on FaceBook

      IMPORTANT: If you experienced problems related to implantable contact lenses, the FDA wants to hear from you. File a MedWatch report with the FDA online. Alternatively, you may call FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088 to report by telephone, or download a copy of the paper form and either fax it to 1-800-FDA-0178 or mail it using the postage-paid addressed form. Read implantable lens injury reports filed with the FDA (enter product code MTA, select a date range, and click search).

      Please note that the ICL is an implantable lens for phakic eyes (those that still have their natural lens).  This is a different category of lens than an IOL (a replacement lens implanted during cataract surgery, after removal of the natural lens).
