Alternatives to LASIK Surgery
Found out that you’re not a LASIK candidate? Still looking for a way to treat your nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism? There are LASIK alternatives you can consider as well!
Phakic Intraocular Lenses
Some patients may not be eligible for LASIK surgery if their lenses can’t focus. One alternative is Phakic Intraocular Lenses.
Phakic Intraocular Lenses are artificial lenses made of plastic or silicone. A surgeon implants these lenses between the cornea and iris of the eyes.
In this procedure, there is no cutting or peeling back the layers of the cornea like there is in LASIK. The lenses are specifically designed to be permanent.
They can also be removed at any time by a qualified eye physician. This procedure can treat farsightedness, nearsightedness, and astigmatism.
It works well for people with moderate to severe vision issues.
