There is now an alternative to LASIK with Visian ICL. Over 100,000,000 ICL procedures done worldwide, and our very own Dr. Wade is contributing to the success of this procedure.
Typical patients are those who are looking for an alternative to LASIK or those with thin corneas, dry eyes and high refractive error. The Visian ICL is an implant… and it’s different from LASIK because it doesn’t involve a laser to treat the cornea. During ICL surgery, Dr. Wade will create a tiny incision in the eye to insert the implantable contact lens behind the colored part of the eye, known as the iris. The lenses are invisible once implanted and patients will not be able to feel them. The ideal ICL candidate is between the ages of 21-45 with high levels of nearsightedness and without significant astigmatism. Another added benefit to ICL surgery is that the procedure is completely reversible and offers additional UV protection for the eyes.
Dr. Wade is one of the top Visian ICL surgeons in Houston and our ICL patients are thrilled with their results. To make your appointment at Eye Center of Texas call us at (713) 395-1515.
