Imagine getting rid of your glasses and still being able to see distant objects. Imagine no more contact lenses and all the hassles and expense that go with them. Can you see yourself choosing whichever sunglasses you want, because you don’t have to worry about getting prescription shades?
These factors can make it a pretty easy decision to choose surgical vision correction. But not everybody can make that choice. Those with stronger prescriptions sometimes aren’t suitable candidates. However, if you’re between the ages of 21 to 45 and have moderate to severe myopia that can’t be treated by LASIK or PRK surgery, there is a surgical solution that may let you say goodbye to your glasses!
Intraocular or ‘phakic’ lenses replacement is a procedure that’s growing in popularity among those who rely on glasses for distance vision. And no wonder. Today’s active lifestyles demand good vision and IOLs are an ideal solution for sports-loving people who don’t want the hassles of glasses or contacts.
At Boydvision we use the Visian ICL, a proven product that has been used in over 400,000 procedures. In fact, according to the company website, a Visian lens is implanted somewhere in the world every 6 minutes! The Visian ICL is surgically implanted behind your iris and in front of your natural lens. The procedure takes about 15 minutes per eye, with recovery time as short as just a few days, depending on the patient.
Another advantage with phakic IOLs is that while the vision correction is permanent… it’s also reversible. So, if you need cataract surgery later in life, the opthamologist can remove your lensand replace them with the appropriate lens for your changed needs.
