Do you have moderate to severe myopia with or without astigmatism? Are you seeking vision correction alternatives to LASIK & PRK? Implantable Contact Lenses are an amazing eye treatment designed to enhance your vision and allow you to break free of eyeglasses and the tedious, daily contact lenses you have to insert.
Implantable Contact Lenses go by many additional names, including Phakic Intraocular Lens, IOLs, and ICLs (a type of IOL). An ICL is an intraocular lens surgically inserted into the eye between the cornea and the iris, or just behind the iris, without removing your natural lens. Overall, Implantable Contact Lenses provide excellent quality of vision with stable results.
The IOLs allow light to focus correctly on the retina for sharp, clear vision without the need for eyeglasses. IOLs work like contact lenses to correct nearsightedness. They are a safe and permanent treatment option for myopia. This eye treatment is a terrific selection for people who cannot have LASIK surgery due to irregular corneas or very high prescriptions. With Implantable Contact Lenses, the eye maintains its natural corneal shape and therefore the quality of vision achieved is excellent.
