For patients who want a permanent solution for their vision but are not good LASIK candidates due to thin corneas, dry eyes, or because their prescription is out of range, the Visian ICL may offer the perfect solution. An ICL is an implantable contact lens. The surgeon makes a tiny incision and inserts the contact lens into the eye and positions it in behind the iris and in front of your natural lens. Once it is implanted, the lens will only be visible through a microscope. It is a permanent solution that can give you the vision you want, but unlike LASIK the Visian ICL can be removed or replaced at any time.
If you would like to learn more about the Visian ICL or schedule a free consultation call our Staten Island or East Brunswick office today!
