What are the benefits of ICL surgery?

ICL surgery gives me a lot of satisfaction in my career. Restoring a patients vision so quickly and accurately with a small surgery that lasts six to seven minutes is amazing.

Advantages of ICL

ICL is a lens that’s implanted inside the eye. It’s like a contact lens, but we implant it inside the eye. It is different from laser vision correction.

One of the main advantages of the ICL is that it’s exchangeable and removable. For example, if your prescription changes in the future we can exchange the ICL for another one. Or, if a new vision correction technology is released that you want to try, we can simply remove the ICL so you can go ahead with another treatment.

Benefits of ICL

An ICL is an add-on lens. We are not changing the eye by taking tissue from the cornea, like laser vision correction. If the ICL has to be removed or exchanged for any reason, that’s possible, and the eye will be back to its normal status that it started with.

What do patients tell you about ICL?

Patients love ICL. ICL patients are among the happiest patients in my practice. Patients find the vision improves very quickly after surgery. There’s a wow factor here, especially those with very high prescriptions.

My patients rarely come back with any complications. I offer my patients a really safe and effective treatment that meets their expectations.

How does ICL help you do your job?

I enjoy seeing patients come back the next day very happy and very pleased with the results. In fact, even after 20 minutes, when we check the patients again, they have amazing vision. Some of them cry with happiness. It’s just amazing. It’s life-changing, and that’s what gives me that satisfaction in my job.

What our patients say…

“As soon as I met Mr Hamada, I knew I was in safe hands. He is an expert in his field, and very reassuring. His work was impeccable, and I would thoroughly recommend him to anyone wanting a professional, kindly, expert service.”

Annabel Giles, Lens replacement

“I came all the way from the US to be evaluated by Mr. Samer Hamada who provided me with a world-class experience. I was treated with technology that doesn’t exist in the United States. My vision improved significantly since the surgery. Mr. Samer Hamada is definitely a Keratoconus expert.”

Tareq Kass Hout, Keratoconus
“I am glad to be with Mr Hamada. I am glad to be examined by Mr Hamada who acts responsibly and professionally. I never had this experience before from a previous ophthalmologist. I am thankful to Mr Hamada for the successful diagnosis and treatment of my case.”
Ghiath Sumainah

“What a Consultant. Dr. Hamada is a man who was born for this profession. As soon as we walked into the room you felt that you had met a man who was gentle and kind. His demeanour was of a man who knew his trade. He speaks in a way that you will understand. He explains exactly what is wrong and the way he will help fix it for you.”

Sam Brock

“Mr Hamada’s London Eye Care and his team are a delight. Nothing was too much trouble and the help, support, advice and guidance before during and after the surgery was all world class. I have worn glasses since the age of 13 years and had the onset of cataracts for the last five so it has all been very much a life changing experience to be free from glasses once more.”

Timothy Thompson

“Mr Hamada, his assistant Joanna and his ophthalmic technicians provide a caring, efficient and high quality service. From the admin through to the surgical aftercare we were very well looked after and we had a high degree of confidence in Mr Hamada’s abilities. Our daughter’s cataracts have been corrected (under general anaesthetic) and her quality of life has improved substantially. You also feel well cared for throughout – the human touch is vital in healthcare, but not always delivered, so well done and thanks to all of the team.”

Nat & Rich
“We were referred to Dr.Hamada by one of the UK experts. The expert himself admitted that Dr.Hamada was better than him!! We were not disappointed at all. Dr. Hamada was excellent with my child. His communication skills and knowledge were exemplary. He gave us clear management plan and would not hesitate to recommend him.”
V Nama
“Dr Hamada is an excellent, highly competent doctor with a very kind and sympathetic manner. His reputation for successfully treating dry eye patients seems unparalleled. His team are all extremely friendly and helpful, especially Dr Hamada’s PA Joanna, making the overall experience better than anywhere else I’ve been!”
Isla Cully, Dry eye
“Appointment setting and follow-up were very efficient and well managed. Mr Hamada was kind, reassuring, knowledgeable and had a very warm manner with my young son, making him instantly feel at ease. I feel that we can trust him and that he will finally be able to solve my son’s long-term eye problems that have stumped other eye doctors.”
