IMPLANTABLE COLLAMER LENS APPEARS BETTER THAN LASIK OR PRK FOR MODERATE TO HIGH MYOPIC PATIENTS

http://www2.cochrane.org/reviews/en/ab007679.html

The results of this review suggest that the implantable lens (ICL) is are safer than excimer laser (the laser used in PRK and LASIK) surgical correction for moderate to high myopia in the range of -6.0 to -20.0 D and ICL is preferred by patients. ICL surgery resulted in better corrected visual acuity, better contrast sensitivity, and improved patient satisfaction. ICL may also be considered in cases where the patient has more moderate near-sightedness (in the range of -3.00 to -6.00).

My personal experience with ICL gives me a high level of confidence in this procedure and the surgeon with whom I co-manage. All patients I have seen have been 20/20 or better. One patient was in the -6.00 range and the others in the -10 range! I see very little side effects. For more information, feel free to our office at 480-812-2211.
