Implantable Contact Lens surgeon in Detroit
The implantable contact lens surgeon in Detroit is Dr. William Goldstein. The implantable contact lens, or ICL, has several advantages over LASIK surgery, and is becoming increasingly popular. Formerly viewed only as a replacement for LASIK in patients who were not candidates for LASIK surgery in Detroit, it has become a primary procedure of choice.The ICL has several advantages, in that it is a fully reversible procedure. In other words, if there is a problem, or a change in prescription, the lens can be removed or replaced. In LASIK surgery, the changes to the cornea are permanent. This is for better or for worse, since it means that the good that is done (getting rid of nearsightendness, for instance) is long-lasting. On the other hand, if any problems with glare and halos or night-vision occur, they are permanent.Another advantage to ICL surgery is that it can correct much higher degrees of correction, more than double the limit of LASIK. Most surgeons will not perform LASIK on patients over a -10.0 of nearsightedness. Dr. Goldstein has actually performed ICL surgery on patients with more than -20.0 of nearsightedness!More information is available on Dr. Goldstein's website, www.2020vision.com, or by appointment with him.
