What is Involved:
Peripheral Iridotomy: Days or weeks prior to surgery, you will be scheduled for YAG laser peripheral iridotomies (P.I.’s). These are just small safety valves made by a laser that is placed in the colored part (iris) of your eyes. We do this for both eyes on the same visit.
ICL Surgery: The surgery is performed on an outpatient basis. This insertion procedure is typically performed one eye at a time and eyes are typically done one day a part from each other. Local anesthesia is used and there is very little discomfort and normally no pain associated with the procedure. ICL's are not visible to the naked eye. Patients are advised to arrange for someone to drive them to and from surgery.
Beyond a Laser Center, we offer the most accurate treatments and advanced spectrum of vision correction technology. Uniquely we offer procedures for the extreme prescriptions and the more complex cases by providing implantable collamer lenses, refractive lens exchange, and more.
