Have you been told that you are not a candidate for LASIK eye surgery because your prescription is too high? ClearChoice Custom LASIK Center now offers a solution for patients that suffer from high myopia or high levels of nearsightedness or astigmatism. The ClearChoice doctors were the first in the state of Ohio to perform the Toric ICL procedure for astigmatism.
The Visian ICL™ is a revolutionary refractive lens that can correct vision up to –15 diopters of nearsightedness and -4 diopters of astigmatism. The Visian I procedure has been repeatedly improved through years of rigorous studies and continued refinement. This lens is a posterior chamber implant that is situated behind the iris and in front of the natural crystalline lens. It is also known as a Phakic IOL. The surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, which means that a patient has surgery and leaves the same day.
The Visian ICL™ is made with Swiss precision from Collamer. Collamer, a collagen copolymer is a proprietary biocompatible material formed from pure collagen and a hydrophilic copolymer with a UV absorbent chromophore. This material has been used to treat the eye for over 15 years now and considered very safe.
What do patients say about Visian ICL?
“My eye doctor told me I had a bionic right eye because I was already seeing better than 20/20 the day after the procedure.”
“I was eligible for both LASIK and the ICLs, but I do have thin corneas, so…I chose the ICL because its adding something to my eye and not reshaping my cornea.”
“The lenses are removable, if something changes in my eyes or in my life…the doctor can go back in, fish them out, and put a new pair in.”
What Happens During Visian ICL™ Surgery
Prior to the surgery a surgeon will make two microscopic holes in the iris. Your eye will be numbed with a light, topical or local anesthetic. Once the eye is numbed the surgeon will make 2 side port incisions and one main temporal incision that is critical to the insertion process. Next the surgeon will insert the ICL through the main temporal incision and place the lens behind the iris and in front of the crystalline lens. This insertion procedure is typically performed one eye at a time. There is very little discomfort and normally no pain associated with the procedure. Some drops or perhaps oral medication may be prescribed and a visit is usually scheduled the day after surgery. Patients will be advised to arrange for someone to drive them to and from surgery.
