Visian Toric ICL: Recently FDA Approved Solution for Patients With Nearsightedness and Astigmatism
Here at ClearSight, we are focused on one goal: providing the life-changing benefit of Sight Without Glasses. In the past, that mainly meant vision correction through the use of all-laser LASIK, but recent years have ushered in new technology and treatment options that expand the range of conditions we can correct as well as results we can achieve. Today, we are excited to be one of the first centers in Oklahoma to offer the benefits of the Visian Toric ICL.
What is the Visian Toric ICL?
Recently approved by the FDA, the Visian Toric ICL is the latest advancement in Visian’s line of Implantable Contact Lenses (ICL’s), which are an amazing vision correction alternative for patients with moderate to high degrees of nearsightedness – and now astigmatism. Even if you may have been told in the past that may not be good candidates for LASIK or PRK, you may be a candidate for this sight-correcting procedure
Until recently, the Visian ICL was only approved to treat patients with myopia (nearsightedness), but now with the approval of the Visian Toric ICL, patients with high degrees of both myopia and astigmatism can have their vision corrected to gain freedom from glasses and contacts!
More about the Visian Toric ICL
The Visian Toric ICL is a tiny lens made of collamer, a technologically-advanced and biocompatible material, that works along with the natural physiology of your eye. The lens is placed under the surface of the eye in front of your natural lens to correct your prescription and have you seeing clearly. Unlike contact lenses, it’s maintenance-free. It never dries out or gets dirty. You don’t have to put it in every morning or worry about it getting lost. The treatment is even reversible!
ClearSight Is Proud to be the First Center in Oklahoma to Perform a Visian Toric ICL Treatment
Am I a Toric ICL Candidate?
Patients who dislike with the ongoing hassle of taking contacts in and out, the drying out of their eyes, and the expense of bottles and cases and solutions will likely be much happier with this much more permanent vision correction solution.
We typically recommend the Visian ICL, and now the Visian Toric ICL, for patients that have moderate to high degrees of nearsightedness and astigmatism. The results have been proven to be just as good, and in many cases, much better than what we can achieve with LASIK.
The only way to truly know all your options is after a thorough medical evaluation, which we provide to all new patients – for free! Are you ready to find out if the Visian ICL (or another treatment) is your best option to achieve Sight Without Glasses? Then schedule yours today!
