If you are considering vision correction in Orlando, Florida, the time has never been better. As a highly trained and experienced vision correction specialist , Dr. Herschel offers a wide range of options, not just LASIK or PRK. Advancements in vision correction are now available to people who may have previously been told they were not good candidates. These alternate procedures provide Dr. Herschel the option to truly customize a treatment plan specific to the visual and lifestyle needs of his patients. When you schedule your consultation at Herschel LASIK at Magruder Eye Institute your options will be thoroughly discussed so you can make a clear and informed decision.
While the LASIK and PRK procedures are focused on reshaping of the cornea, The Visian ICL, or implantable collamer lens, works inside the eye along with the natural lens to focus clearly. The Visian ICL resembles a very small contact lens, which is inserted through a tiny incision under topical anesthesia and then placed between the iris and the natural lens of the eye. It is not seen by observers and is not felt in the eye. The highly biocompatible collamer material, unique to STAAR Surgical, provides UVA and UVB protection and provides what patients describe as "high definition vision". Most commonly, the procedure is completed on both eyes on the same day, within minutes, with rapid recovery allowing most patients to return to general activities the next day. Unlike LASIK and PRK the Visian ICL offers reversibility because there is no tissue being removed from the eye's surface (cornea). Should your vision change significantly over the years the ICL can be removed and/or replaced. Because no tissue is being removed, the Visian ICL also allows for a broader range of nearsighted correction than can be accomplished with the excimer laser and can in many cases produce better, higher quality visual results than other vision correction procedures. It is truly amazing to be able to see a patient with glasses as thick as coke bottles walk out of surgery immediately able to see the clock on the wall or their cell phone! This amount of nearsighted correction, -20.00 diopters for example, simply cannot be accomplished safely with LASIK. The only way to determine which procedure is best suited for you is to schedule a complete dilated eye exam with Dr. Herschel. Thorough testing will give Dr. Herschel the information he needs to help you make an informed decision on your best options.
The Visian ICL received FDA approval in 2005 and is intended for patients between the ages of 21 to 45 who are nearsighted within the range of -3.00 to -20.00 diopters, with a stable prescription and healthy eyes.
Over 350,000 Visian ICLs have been implanted world wide. The U.S. military has embraced this technology and the Visian ICL has improved the vision of the bravest people in our nation who work under the harshest conditions. The results are nothing short of heroic.
