ICL Seminar and live surgery
Feel free to watch the live video here, or if you want an opportunity to ask questions during the live surgery view the event on this Google+ event or ask on twitter using #LiveSurgery.
Don’t miss the chance to learn about the Visian ICL™ vision correction procedure and to watch a live ICL surgery performed. Dr. Robert P. Rivera, the most experienced ICL surgeon in the US and Dr. Gregory Parkhurst, who has served as the Chief of Ophthalmology and Refractive Eye Surgery at the world’s largest military base will be answering questions about ICL surgery and will perform a live ICL surgery on Utah optometrist, Mike Judkins, OD.
LASIK is an amazing procedure that has helped millions of people see better without glasses and contact lenses. But even this miraculous surgery has its limitations. People with extremely high prescriptions, thin or irregular corneas, extremely dry eyes or any combination of these factors, may not be good candidates for laser vision correction.
For many of these patients, there is another option: the Visian ICL™. Short for Implantable Collamer Lens, the ICL procedure involves implanting a small artificial lens in the eye. The Visian™ lens is implanted in front of the eye’s natural lens, but behind the iris, where it is undetectable to outside observers. This implantable lens is capable of treating higher prescriptions than LASIK, and since the procedure does not involve removing any corneal tissue, it can be performed on patients whose corneas are too thin for laser refractive procedures. Hoopes Vision is home to the most experienced ICL surgeon in the United States.
If you’ve always wanted LASIK, but thought “There’s no way they can fix this high of a prescription,” or if you’ve ever been told by a doctor that you aren’t a good candidate for laser eye surgery, this live surgery event may be a great opportunity to find out if Visian ICL™ can help you.
