What is Verisyse™ Lens Implant?
Used to treat moderate to severe myopia (nearsightedness), the Verisyse™ phakic IOL lens is an excellent option for people who are not candidates for LASIK. In essence, the Verisyse™ procedure gives the eye another focusing lens that provides the same quality and definition as that of a normal healthy eye.
Called "one of the most amazing inventions of 2004" by Time magazine, the Verisyse ™ phakic IOL lens is a promising alternative for anyone who is not a good candidate for cornea-based refractive surgery.
How Does the Verisyse™ Lens Work?
By placing the Verisyse™ phakic IOL micro lens behind your cornea and on top of your iris, an experienced Verisyse™ surgeon is able to alter the configuration of your eye to correct moderate to severe nearsightedness. Inserted through a tiny incision and implanted in front of the eye's natural lens, the Verisyse™ lens works by bending light rays so that they focus on the retina. The Verisyse™ lens is called a " phakic IOL" because your natural crystalline lens is left in the eye – an important point because your natural lens plays a key role in helping your eye adjust between objects that are near and far.
