EMBLYOPIA AND HIGH MYOPIA
Helow doc.. at the age of 10 i found out that i have a lazy left eye with a - 5D of myopia.. where my right eye was absolutely normal with - 1.25..now i am 20+ And my left eye is - 11D with a 6/9P vision and right eye is - 3D with 6/6 vision.. Doctors advised me for a ICL surgery as my prescription are almost stable.. now i have a number of queries.. 1) will my left eye be restored with 6/6 normal vision after ICL??? 2)i have a healthy retina in both eyes.. so in future will there be any retinal problems??? 3) how much does it effect to us having a 6/9P vision instead of 6/6 in the left eye??? (I suffer from serious depression for this issue)... Thank you doctor for your help and support in advance... :D

Already gone for icl or planning to go for icl,if you have not gone for icl,discard the idea of icl,it is not good in long run ,whoever has advised for icl  is not advising you in your interest, if you don't want to use glasses, then go for LASIK or Smile after proper corneal & retinal evaluations, discard idea of icl otherwise you will repent later on.All that glitters is not gold. You have been ill advised  by some doctors, he  has advised in his own interest, consult experienced & good ophthalmologists  before going for icl.
