Implantable Contact Lenses as Alternative to LASIK
Staar Surgical Company reported that a new implantable contact lens is now available to some candidates between the ages of 21 and 45. This new alternative to LASIK eye surgery can work for those who suffer from nearsightedness, have not already had LASIK eye surgery or any other type of refractive eye surgery, and do not have any type of eye disease in their history.
The reports have not determined if the surgery is permanent but your vision may require adjusting from time to time. It was reported that it is not possible to prevent the progression of nearsightedness, so if your vision continues to change LASIK Houston eye surgery may be able to correct it but it will not be cheap.
A Houston LASIK eye surgery provider mentioned that LASIK can cost about $2000 per eye. Whereas implantable contact lenses will usually run about $3000 per eye.
