Benefits of Intraocular Lenses

LASIK Eye Surgery ChicagoIf you are one of the many people who rely on glasses or contact lenses in order to see clearly, you may have resigned yourself to the fact that you will always need these assistive aids. You may have even asked your eye doctor in Chicago about LASIK eye surgery, only to be told that you aren't a good candidate for the procedure. If you are nearsighted, you may have another option. Intraocular contact lenses (ICL) work with the eye's natural lens to improve vision without the hassle of glasses or external contact lenses. Visian ICL offers predictable and stable results, with an excellent quality of vision following the procedure. The implantation itself is relatively simple, as the lens is inserted through a very small incision. You won't be able to see the lens once it's implanted, and you won't have to do anything to maintain it. Whether your myopia is mild or severe, ICL may be an option for you. Though removal shouldn't be necessary, intraocular contact lenses are removable if the need should arise in the future.
