Investing In the Visian ICL for Keratoconus: IntraOcular LensesTuesday, September 25th, 2012, 5:59 pm
In the beginning stages of Keratoconus many patients have to use glasses and contact lenses. The continued change in prescriptions often cause these patients to get new ones regularly. The Visian ICL or Intra Ocular Contact lenses is a treatment that can not only help improve your quality of vision but also reduce some of the frustrations of glasses and contact lenses.
The Visian ICL is placed behind your cornea and iris (colored portion of eye), but in front of your natural lens to provide support to your current vision. The use of the Visian ICL will noticeably improve your quality of vision almost immediately. The Visian ICL is made of Collamer a special material that allows it to be durable, and not break down when in place. The bio-compatible material doesn’t require any maintenance and can be removed if necessary.
Below are a couple other benefits:
The Visian ICL has been quickly adopted as a procedure of choice: The lens is similar to what is used in cataract surgeries, however it is now an alternative to r the LASIK procedure because of the quality of vision and the ability to change them if needed without damage to the cornea. These factors has increased the use of the Visian ICL both from safety and technology.
The Visian ICL gives you the option to reduce the need for Glasses or Contact lenses: In most keratoconus patients, this may not completely eliminate your need for contacts or glasses, but it can greatly reduce your need by reducing a majority of your prescription.
The implant needs no maintenance after it is put in place, unlike glasses or contact lenses.
