Phakic IOLs: What Are They?
Phakic intraocular lenses are implantable contact lenses that are similar to the IOLs Clarity Eye Group’s surgeons use when performing cataract surgery in Orange County. However, instead of replacing the patient’s natural crystalline lens, a phakic IOL is placed in front of the natural lens and works with it to improve vision. Phakic IOLs provide a safe and effective alternative for those who are not good candidates for LASIK surgery because they have a high degree of nearsightedness or farsightedness. There are currently two types of phakic intraocular lenses approved by the FDA: Visian ICLs and Verisyse phakic IOLs.
Visian ICLs in Orange County
Visian ICL is a brand of implantable contact lens commonly used to treat nearsighted patients who are not candidates for LASIK because they suffer from dry eyes, autoimmune disease or have thin corneas. Many patients with severe myopia also are best treated with ICLs rather than LASIK, which cannot correct high levels of myopia. Also, unlike LASIK, ICL procedure is reversible ─ the lens can be removed if the ICL Orange County patient has not achieved his or her desired vision.
Verisyse Phakic IOLs
The Verisyse phakic intraocular lens can be an effective alternative for patients who are not candidates for LASIK surgery. By placing the Verisyse phakic IOL in the eye, a surgeon can achieve the same quality of vision as that of a healthy natural eye.
