Q: I wanted to have Lasik but was told I need Visian ICL’s instead. Can you help?

A: Lasik is a great surgery; I have been doing it for over 20 years. Lasik is very
effective for treating astigmatism, nearsightedness, and farsightedness. However, in
some cases, Lasik may not be the best treatment or even advisable for some people.
The Visian ICL by Staar Surgical is an excellent option for those who are nearsighted and cannot have Lasik.

Visian ICLs work well for many people who have thick nearsighted glasses
often too much for Lasik corrections. Personally, I prefer the Visian ICL for
prescriptions greater than -8.00 diopters, and for many greater than -7.00 diopters.
In some cases with lower prescriptions, the Visian ICL may also be recommended if
someone’s cornea is too thin or there are signs of condition like keratoconus or a
tendency towards keratoconus.
