    ICL (Implantable Contact Lens)

    The Implantable Contact Lens (ICL™) is a lens made of a highly biocompatible Collamer® material that is permanently implanted into the eye, providing an alternative to glasses, contact lenses and Laser Vision Correction (PRK/LASIK) surgery. It is similar in design to implants inserted routinely during cataract surgery. The implant focuses light rays onto the retina resulting […]

    Custom Laser Vision Correction (LASIK, PRK)

    Custom wavefront ablation is a modification of conventional Laser Vision Correction. All of the eye’s unique visual errors are first measured and then downloaded into the laser for subsequent treatment with LASIK or PRK. Laser vision correction has traditionally provided the same type of correction as spectacles or contact lenses by permanently treating myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. Recent studies have […]
