You are only a phone call away from seeing the world more clearly than ever. If you would like to schedule your complimentary first visit, we invite you to contact our Houston or Katy office today. You can discuss Visian ICL™ in detail with Dr. Jeffery Whitsett and discover its many benefits.
There are a number of different factors that contribute to your candidacy for Visian ICL™. During your comprehensive exam with Dr. Whitsett, he will establish whether the treatment is right for you. In general, you are a good candidate for Visian ICL™ if you:
- Are between 21 and 45
- Are nearsighted, with or without astigmatism
- Have had little to no change in your eyeglass prescription in the last year
- Are not pregnant
- Have no allergies to medications used during the surgery
- Have dry eyes, severe myopia, or a thin cornea that would disqualify you from LASIK surgery
The Whitsett Vision Group is dedicated to providing the best possible care for our patients. We provide a complimentary consultation that we hope will help you better understand the benefits of ICL surgery. Please contact us at our Houston or Katy office to schedule your appointment. Visian ICL™ could be the answer to your eye care needs, and a life changing improvement in your vision is only a phone call away.
Understanding the Technology
The Visian ICL™ is a customized artificial lens implanted inside of the eye to reduce or correct your refractive error. This technology acts as an alternative to LASIK for patients who are not candidates for LASIK. These ICLs are capable of correcting moderate to severe myopia – or nearsightedness – in patients with little to no astigmatism.
Understanding the Procedure
The procedure involved in placing Visian ICL™ is simple and painless. Your eyes will be prepared two weeks prior to surgery – using a laser, two small openings between the lens and the front chamber of the eye will be created – to eliminate the risk of intraocular pressure during the operation. Through this preparatory treatment, we can help fluids to pass naturally between the two areas of the eye and ensure the best chance of success.
The procedure itself is quick and should be complete within ten minutes. A light topical or local anesthetic (and in some cases a mild sedative) will be applied to the eye. The Visian ICL™ is then placed. After fifteen minutes, you will see immediate and drastic improvements in your vision that will continue to improve. Our patients are predictably ecstatic about the instant results they experience and we want to share that joy with you.
Minimal discomfort is experienced after the surgery and you may be prescribed eye drops to manage any pain, and any special concerns can be brought to Dr. Whitsett’s attention at your follow-up appointment.
