Implantable Contact Lenses
What are Implantable Contact Lenses?
Implantable contact lenses, such as Visian ICL, are contact lenses that have been specially designed to fit within the eye itself. Implantable lenses are made of synthetic polymer designed by top materials scientists. The lenses are long-lasting and safe. They are removed if necessary and replaced with new lenses if your prescription changes. Implantable contact lenses are a safe alternative to LASIK surgery.
You may be a good candidate for this if you have no history of:
- Ophthalmic Disease
Implantable Contact Lenses are designed for use by near-sighted men and women between the ages of 21 and 45. If you are younger than 21 you will need to wait a while. If you are over age 45 you should discuss additional options with your doctor. They can be a good choice for those who are not good candidates for LASIK surgery. You should talk to your doctor if you wished you could have LASIK surgery but couldn’t because of thin corneas or dry eyes.
