Some patients have eye anatomy that is not a good fit for laser vision correction. This is particularly true of extremely near-sighted patients.
If the doctors at Spinak Medical Eye Center say you are not a candidate for LASIK®, the Visian implantable contact lens may be a great option. Some individuals will see a significant improvement after their laser vision but will still require corrective lenses for some activities.
What is the Visian implantable contact lens?
The Visian ICL is a contact lens-like implant that works inside the eye to correct vision. Unlike a traditional contact lens, the Visian ICL is surgically inserted into the eye and does not require regular cleaning or maintenance.
Is LASIK® or the Visian Implant a better choice?
