Vision Correction Procedures

Want to see without the need of glasses or contact lenses? While laser vision correction (LASIK and PRK) have become the preferred alternative to glasses and contact lenses for millions of people throughout the world, there are several other procedures now available such as implantable contact lenses (ICL), intra-ocular lenses (IOL) and corneal inlays that may free you from your glasses and contacts.

Vision Correction Procedures

Intraocular Lens

Intraocular lenses (IOLs) are medical devices that are implanted inside the eye to replace the eye’s natural lens when it is removed during cataract surgery. IOLs also are used for a type of vision correction surgery called refractive lens exchange.

Implantable Contact Lens

The Visian ICL is a refractive lens also known as a phakic IOL (intraocular lens). “Phakic” meaning that the natural lens of the eye is not removed during the procedure. Instead, the natural lens is left in place. The ICL is an implant that is situated behind the iris and in front of the natural crystalline lens.
