Sophisticated Refractive ICL surgery Is Available in New Jersey
The sophisticated refractive surgery which helped the US Bobsled team win the gold medal in Vancouver is available on the east coast, in Monmouth County, New Jersey. More than10 years ago, Dr Daniel Goldberg of the Atlantic Laser Vision Center was the first eye surgeon in NJ to implant Phakic IOLs. Now, the procedure is FDA approved for treating nearsightedness in eyes which otherwise are not candidates for laser vision correction such as eyes with thin corneas and very high degrees of nearsightedness. In selected cases, the ICL can also benefit cases with advanced keratoconus (the condition corrected for the US Bobsled captain).
Dr. Daniel Goldberg uses the Visian Phakic IOL lens to treat moderate to severe myopia (nearsightedness), this is an excellent option for New Jersey residents who are not candidates for LASIK. The Visian ICL procedure gives the eye another focusing lens that provides the same quality and definition as that of a normal healthy eye. By placing the Visian phakic IOL micro lens behind a patient’s cornea and under the iris, Dr. Goldberg, an experienced Visian ICL surgeon, is able to alter the configuration of the eye to correct moderate to severe nearsightedness. The Visian lens improves a patient’s distance vision, with the goal of eliminating glasses and contact lenses.
“Phakic IOLs are like embedded contact lenses,” explains Dr. Goldberg. “Phakic IOL implantation differs from laser refractive procedures such as LASEK and LASIK because it involves implanting an IOL in the eye, not reshaping the cornea.”
Advantages of Phakic IOLs include high levels of correction, excellent quality of vision and preservation of accommodation. Dr Goldberg provides Phakic IOLs for the correction of high degrees of nearsightedness with the Visian ICL. The Staar Visian ICL™ is an implantable collamer lens that is permanently implanted behind the natural lens of the eye to improve vision in nearsighted individuals. The implantable collamer contact lenses work by bending the light rays that pass through the natural lens to achieve sharper focus on the retina.
The main difference between implantable contact lenses and traditional IOLs is the fact that an ICL works in conjunction with the eye’s crystalline lens and an IOL replaces the eye’s natural lens. More information on these procedures can be found at http://www.goldberg4lasik.com/phakic-iol/
Typically, IOLs are used to treat cataracts and, in some cases, presbyopia. Implantable contact lenses treat myopia, myopia with astigmatism, and hyperopia (farsightedness). Dr Goldberg is the first cornea surgeon in NJ to bring these advancements to his patients.
