At Michelson Laser Vision, Inc. lens implants such as Visian ICL™ Implantable Collamer Lens, also called an implantable contact lens, may be an option for patients who have been told that they are not good candidates for laser eye surgery, but who still wish to reduce or eliminate their dependence on contact lenses or eyeglasses. Marc Michelson, M.D. may be able to provide them the opportunity to achieve their vision correction goals through the use of lens implants for vision correction that can even correct moderate and high degrees of nearsightedness or myopia and astigmatism.
A growing trend in vision correction is the use of lens implants for Phakic Lens Implant Surgery. By using a Phakic Lens Implant, it is possible to leave the natural crystalline lens in place, and insert a tiny lens in front of your natural lens. This allows your vision to be corrected almost as if we were implanting a contact lens. For patients who are extremely nearsighted and told that they are not candidates for LASIK or any type of corneal laser eye surgery, Drs. Michelson may recommend the Visian ICL ™ Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) to correct your vision.
