What is an implantable Contact Lens ?

Some patients are not candidates for laser vision correction. They may be candidates for an implantable lens. This is an artificial lens inserted inside the eye and stays there permanently. It takes about 15 minutes to do. The results are as good as lasik. One advantage is that the lens is removable . Ask your doctor for more details about it.
