January 2, 2019
From being the first to perform LASIK in North America to introducing one-stitch and eventually no-stitch cataract surgery, Kremer Eye Center has been at the forefront in the world of eye care and vision correction for more than 35 years.
Today, we’re proud to maintain our position as pioneers in the industry by being the first in the tri-state area to offer Visian Toric ICL (Implantable Contact Lenses). Ideal for those with moderate to high levels of myopia or astigmatism, this innovative option has given us a chance to help more patients see clearly.
To learn more about this cutting-edge vision correction solution, here’s what you need to know about Visian Toric ICL.
Visian Toric ICL Overview & Benefits
Visian Toric ICL is an FDA-approved lens from STAAR Surgical designed to help those that are nearsighted or have astigmatism see clearer. During the procedure, your surgeon will place the innovative lens behind the iris in front of your eye’s natural lens. Once implanted, the lenses can correct your vision permanently, but it can be removed and replaced if your prescription ever changes.
However, improved eyesight isn’t the only benefit to this cutting-edge lens. With Visian Toric ICL, patients can also get UV protection as well as outstanding night vision. It can also reduce the need for multiple corrective eye surgeries as it can treat both astigmatism and myopia simultaneously.
More importantly, Visian Toric ICL gives patients great, long-lasting results and provides people with more treatment options. In fact, FDA approval was based on results from a clinical study that showed that more than 98% of patients would choose to have Visian Toric ICL surgery again.
“We have been thrilled with the results of the Visian ICL over the past decade,” said Michael Aronsky, M.D. “Kremer doctors have placed thousands of these lenses in nearsighted patients but have been limited in people with coexisting astigmatism. With the FDA approval of the Visian Toric ICL, we are very excited to be able to treat both issues with one 3-minute surgery.”
