Boosting Your Vision: Comparing LASIK and ICL [INFOGRAPHIC]

Are you tired of fumbling with glasses and contact lenses every day just so you can see clearly? Do you wish you could wake up in the morning with crystal clear vision? If so, it might be time to consult your eye doctor in Chicago to find out if LASIK or ICL might be right for you. LASIK eye surgery is a laser-assisted procedure that reshapes the cornea to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. ICL, or intraocular contact lenses, are implanted right in the eye and can correct moderate to severe nearsightedness. Take a look at this infographic from Gerstein Eye Institute, an eye surgery center in Chicago, to learn more about whether one of these procedures might be right for your vision. Please share this helpful information with your friends and family!
