Vision Correction Options
We offer a wide variety of vision correction options at Clear Choice Custom LASIK Center in Cleveland, OH. As Cleveland refractive surgery experts we offer much more than LASIK. Although LASIK eye surgery is an excellent procedure with tremendous benefits it might not be for everyone. This is why we offer vision correction alternatives. Please take a look at some of the other options available at our eye care practice.
Accommodating Lens Implant (Crystalens)
This lens implant can be used for cataract surgery or refractive lens exchange. Crystalens is an artificial lens implant that, unlike a standard IOL, can treat both a person’s cataracts and presbyopia—loss of near and intermediate vision. You probably noticed in your forties that you started to lose some of your up-close vision and had to start wearing reading glasses.
Laser Cataract Surgery Cleveland
Laser cataract surgery, also known as femtosecond cataract surgery, has emerged to provide patients with excellent options for vision correction after cataract surgery. In combination with advanced technology lens implants, this is a state-of-the-art cataract surgery that is highly successful. Our center performs your surgery performed with this Catalys, OptiMedica laser. ClearChoice Custom LASIK Center along with ClevelandEye Clinic, located in Brecksville, Ohio was one of the first practices in Ohio to employ laser cataract surgery.
Corneal Collagen Crosslinking (CXL)
Corneal Collagen Crosslinking (CXL) is a developing keratoconus treatment. CXL works by increasing collagen crosslinks which are the natural “anchors” within the cornea. These anchors are responsible for preventing the cornea from bulging out and becoming steep and irregular.
Collagen crosslinking is not a cure for keratoconus. The aim of this treatment is to arrest the progression of keratoconus, and thereby prevent further deterioration in vision and the need for corneal transplantation.
