Millions of nearsighted Americans may be able to achieve quality vision thanks to the approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration of the Visian ICL™ Implantable Collamer Lens. This lens works like an implantable contact lens and is best suited for individuals who have moderate to severe nearsightedness.
“Many nearsighted patients previously not candidates for LASIK vision correction will benefit from the Visian ICL” says Dr. David C. Brown, Medical Director and Founder of Eye Centers of Florida. “Thanks to the ICL, we can help individuals achieve vision they have always dreamed of having” he also adds.
“I hear from my very nearsighted patients every day how exciting it would be to be free from glasses and contact lenses,” states Dr. Brown. “Many of these patients are not candidates for LASIK”, he added. “We are very excited about the Visian ICL because it offers hope to our patients with impaired vision.”
