If you are not a candidate for LASIK or PRK laser vision correction surgery, or if you are simply looking for alternatives to those procedures, the Visian ICL™ may an ideal option for your goals. This implantable contact (collamer) lens is designed to be placed in front of the eye’s natural lens to help you reduce your dependence on glasses or traditional contacts. Unlike intraocular lenses (IOLs), Visian ICL™ procedures are reversible and the implants can be removed later if desired.
Vision Correction Surgery
The Eye Institute of Utah offers a comprehensive range of vision correction surgery procedures to address conditions such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, cataracts, and presbyopia. Options include LASIK and PRK, refractive lens exchange, lens implants, and cataract surgery.
Our experienced retinal specialist and the doctors here at The Eye Institute of Utah can help patients who are suffering from retinal diseases such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, flashes and floaters, and retinal detachment.
One of the most common eye diseases, glaucoma causes a gradual loss of vision over time that is often not noticed in its early stages. The condition can lead to significant vision loss if left untreated. Our experienced glaucoma physicians at The Eye Institute can screen you for glaucoma and provide effective treatments, from eye drops in milder cases to surgery for those with more advanced glaucoma.
Dry eye syndrome, pterygium, corneal dystrophies, and keratoconus are some of the common conditions that can affect the eye’s cornea. Our practice offers state-of-the-art procedures such as corneal transplantation and Intacs® corneal implants to help patients fight diseases and conditions of the cornea that can lead to debilitating vision loss.
Eyelid and Facial Plastics
