Not everyone is a good candidate for LASIK. When doing your research, you should look seriously at a practice that also offers Visian ICL as an alternate to LASIK.
If you have thin corneas, dry eyes and high refractive error – the Visian ICL may be a better option for you.
The Visian ICL is an implant and it doesn’t involve a laser to treat the cornea (this is especially good for patient with dry eye).
The Visian ICL is an outpatient procedure, takes 15 minutes per eye, little to no discomfort and has a 99.4% satisfaction rate.
The ideal ICL candidate is between the ages of 21-45 with high levels of nearsightedness and without significant astigmatism.
Recovery begins immediately, with most patients reporting clear vision by the end of the procedure.
