Implantable Contact Lens

When most people consider the possibility of life without contact lenses or glasses, they’re usually thinking of LASIK or another type of laser eye surgery. Unfortunately, not everyone is a good candidate for LASIK. If you are less than 40 years of age and have a very high prescription, then the use of an additional lens can be a very good alternative to LASIK.

During a brief Implantable Contact Lens treatment under local anesthesia, the Artisan or Artisan lens is implanted through a tiny incision at the edge of the cornea.

The lens consists of an optical and a haptic part. The optical part contains your required correction; it is the part that makes you see better. The haptic part consists of two clips on either side of the lens. This clip contains a tiny opening; with the use of a small, specially designed instrument, a minuscule fold of iris tissue is clamped between the clip. Once the lens is fitted snugly and securely, the main part of the procedure is completed.

In an Artisan lens implantation the tiny incision is subsequently sutured, in an Artiflex implantation the incision is smaller and does not need to be sutured.

The AcrySof® CACHET™ phakic lens works with your natural lenses to help focus light for sharper distance vision. As part of a vision correction procedure known as phakic surgery, the AcrySof® CACHET™ phakic lens is implanted in the anterior chamber of your eye. Once in place, phakic lenses add the focusing power you need to help correct high myopia. It’s like wearing your glasses or contacts all the time – but without all the worry.

Artisan and Artiflex lenses are small, ultra-thin contact lenses that are implanted into the eye to correct short-sightedness, long-sightedness and / or cylinder deviations. An Artisan or Artiflex lens is attached to the iris with two tiny clips. Once implanted, the lens remains permanently in your eye.Artisan and Artiflex lenses could very well be a solution if you are troubled by glasses or contact lenses. For those with significant degrees of astigmatism the PHAKIC ICL of choice is the Artisan Ophtec Iris-Fixated ICL. Hyperopia, astigmatism, and myopia are treated with this lens.

Not only is Rakesh a very nice man, he is a master of his craft and has demonstrated a keen desire to ensure I am truly happy with my new eyes. Sometimes things dont go precisely to plan and it is at times like this some might create reasons to run away. Not Rakesh or anyone on the Laser Vision team. They are incredibly dedicated to customer service and my well being, ultimately ensuring that one of my most important senses, will be vastly improved from it's former blurred state and enable me to live a full colorful life, for the rest of my life.

Wonderful service from the 1st appointment. Caring staff and my options were explained to me thoroughly in great detail. The operation was painless and happened in no time at all. The staff on the day were attentive to all my needs. The after care was impeccable. Having lens replacement surgery was the best decision I could make. It has changed my life and being free of glasses is amazing. Rakesh and his team at Laservision have been so kind and so professional I can't recommend them enough.

I've had cataracts and laser with Mr Rakesh Jayaswal this year. I was delighted with his help and re-assurance throughout both procedures and cannot recommend him and his team highly enough. Always with a friendly smile and very patient in answering all my queries. All the team, including Vicky and the admin ladies, were a joy to deal with. I highly recommend LaserVision and would certainly go back if I need any further treatment in the future.

From first consultation, through surgery, to discharge- review, lens replacement surgery and aftercare has been seamless. I have always felt well cared- for and supported even throughout 2020 when Covid19 moved the goal posts! Rakesh and his team are ultimate professionals in their field and really believe in what they're doing. They are just lovely human- beings. This surgery liberated my life from contact lenses and glasses after 45 years. Thankyou ....
