St. Louis, Missouri -
Brinton Vision, based in St. Louis, Missouri, has announced the launch of the Visian ICL St Louis playlist on their YouTube channel. Visian ICL is an implantable contact lens or implantable Collamer lens that requires only a simple, 15-minute procedure to be placed beneath the surface of the eye. The playlist is made up of videos showing the experiences of people who have undergone this kind of corrective eye surgery. An important feature of the Visian ICL is that the material used is in sync with the body’s natural chemistry.
Dr. Jason Brinton, a refractive surgery specialist and founder of Brinton Vision, says, “ICLs, also known as permanent contact lenses, correct a wide range of prescriptions and can be a good choice for patients with thin corneas, high astigmatism, too strong of a glasses prescription for LASIK, or a desire for the crispest, sharpest vision that lens implant surgery can provide. Brinton Vision offers multiple LASIK and vision correction surgery options that can help patients see clearly - including for many people who have been told they are not candidates for LASIK. View the videos on our YouTube channel to see how Visian ICL is actually helping people.”
The ICL is positioned in front of the natural lens of the eyes and is hidden behind the iris. There is no need to remove any corneal tissue and the natural lens also remains intact. Collamer is a proprietary material used exclusively by STAAR Surgical in the Visian ICL and other corrective lenses. This material contains collagen, which naturally occurs in your body. Visian ICL Collamer technology has some unique characteristics that make it an ideal material for a vision correction lens. ICLs are easy to implant in the eye because of the soft and flexible structure. Not only do others not see the ICL in the eye – patients don’t feel it.
The ICL surgery makes use of a tiny self-sealing incision; the vision can be substantially improved immediately after surgery. In addition, Visian ICLs have an ultraviolet blocker that shields the eyes from harmful UV rays. While the procedure takes about 15 minutes, our patients are usually here at Brinton Vision for a few hours because our doctors may perform testing before and after the procedure. Patients are advised to bring along a friend or loved one to drive them home because vision may be blurry while they are in recovery. In general, vision becomes clear within a few hours of surgery.
For people who are interested in the clear vision that Visian ICL can offer, the first step is to schedule a Brinton Vision Ocular Analysis (BVOA). Our BVOA is one of the most advanced eye exams you will ever experience. Tests are performed to check overall eye health and look for potential future issues such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, or cataracts. Our BVOA diagnostic tests provide our doctors with the information needed to determine which of the 7 modern forms of LASIK are best for their eyes – Visian ICL, KAMRA Inlay, SMILE laser eye surgery, Light Adjustable Lens (LAL), Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE), SBK, and PRK.
