LASIK Isn’t the only option for your vision correction.
If you aren’t the right fit for LASIK, there are other options! At ICON Eyecare, we are experts at a number of alternative treatments to LASIK eye surgery. We want you to explore the various eye treatments that could help correct your vision.
Visian Implantable Contact Lens (ICL)
This implant procedure can reduce refractive errors and only takes about 15-30 minutes to complete. Most people will experience vision improvement within 24 hours. This can be a better option for patients with dry eyes or oddly shaped corneas.
How is Visian ICL Different From LASIK?
Unlike LASIK, Visian ICL is well-suited for patients with chronically dry eyes or thin or abnormally shaped corneas. Visian ICL is an implantable contact lens that helps your eye to see clearly, while LASIK involves re-shaping your cornea with a laser to achieve the same vision correction.
Colorado’s Visian ICL Expert
Dr. Eva Kim is the #1 Visian ICL surgeon in the state of Colorado. ICON Eyecare is also the only provider in the state to have ArcScan’s Insight® 100 to precisely fit your ICL.
Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK)
This procedure also changes the shape of the cornea, but it is a better option for those that have refractory errors, struggle with dry eyes or have thin corneas.
How is PRK Different from LASIK?
The main difference between PRK and LASIK is how the surgeon accesses your cornea during the procedure. With LASIK, a thin flap is created on the surface of the cornea. With PRK, the thin outer layer of the cornea (the epithelium) is gently swabbed away to allow the surgeon to access the treatment area. This outer layer naturally regenerates after surgery. Due to the nature of the procedure, PRK will include a longer recovery time than LASIK. The results appear more gradually, and vision improvements will take longer to stabilize. However, PRK is a safe and effective alternative for patients with thin corneas or other restrictions who may not qualify for LASIK.
