Laser Vision Correction

Many people who rely on glasses or contact lenses for vision correction are tired of the hassle and expense.

Technology and techniques have greatly advanced and patients now have a range of bladeless corrective vision options to choose from.

ICON Eyecare uses the most advanced technology and techniques to offer its patients the laser-assisted eye surgery that is right for their eyes and needs, producing the most successful outcomes possible. ICON Eyecare offers bladeless LASIK surgery, PRK (photorefractive keratectomy), and refractive lens exchange laser corrective surgery. ICON Eyecare surgeons have performed more than 200,000 laser vision correction procedures.

  • Multiple Laser Vision Correction Surgery Options

    Bladeless LASIK surgery is the most well-known form of corrective vision surgery and is a simple outpatient procedure commonly used to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness and even astigmatism.

    PRK is a LASIK alternative and is an ideal option for patients who are not good candidates for LASIK, often due to having high prescriptions or thin corneas. It is also performed as an outpatient procedure. PRK is a “flap free” alternative to LASIK.

    Refractive lens exchange, also known as lens replacement surgery, is another corrective vision option. This procedure follows the same process of natural lens replacement used to treat cataract patients, even though in many RLE procedures cataracts are not present. An additional benefit of refractive lens exchange is that the patient will never develop cataracts.

  • Non-Laser Vision Correction Options

    The Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) from Visian is another LASIK alternative. ICL lenses are sometimes recommended for individuals who are not candidates for traditional LASIK surgery or other laser vision correction procedures. ICL is also a good vision correction option for people with very high corrections (high myopia).

    This thin lens is gently slipped inside the eye through a small incision. Once positioned, it rests behind the iris and in front of the natural lens of the eye. As these lenses are tailored to your correction, even for extreme nearsightedness, vision is typically improved in dramatic fashion. Further, implantable lenses have a fundamental advantage over laser correction; they can be removed from the eye if needed. The cornea is minimally affected, with no corneal tissue removed or ablated. Typically ICL surgery is painless and recovery is exceedingly fast.

    If laser vision correction is not an option for you, ask your ICON Eyecare doctor about Visian Implantable Collamer Lens.
