Suitable Solutions for Myopia, Presbyopia, and Hyperopia
In addition to laser eye surgery, PECG adjusts vision through implantable collamer lens and refractive lens exchange. Call us in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, to schedule an appointment and determine if either treatment is right for you.
ICL (Phakic IOL)
Visian ICL (implantable collamer lens) is a thin lens implanted inside the eye behind the pupil, between the iris and natural lens. This procedure can correct higher levels of myopia (up to -16 diopters) than LASIK or PRK. The eye's natural lens is left in place, and there is no corneal laser or treatment. PECG has the most experience with performing ICL surgery in the Harrisburg region.
Refractive lens exchange is also called clear lens extraction. It is essentially cataract surgery performed on a clear lens or mild cataract. The natural lens is replaced with an IOL (intraocular lens), which can be single focus or multifocal, correcting for distance and near vision. RLE has the advantage of being able to treat presbyopia as well as extreme myopia or hyperopia.
