More than 50,000 patients have
given up the hassle of traditional contact lenses for the convenience
of the Visian ICL, the first lens of its kind to receive FDA
The Visian ICL is an
implantable contact lens that's surgically inserted in front of the
natural lens of the eye. The procedure takes about 15 minutes. The
invisible lens requires no maintenance. It's often an option for those
who aren't good candidates for -- or aren't interested in -
About the Visian
A week or so before your lens is inserted,
Dr. Cohen will make a small opening with a laser to
allow fluid to pass between the lens and the front chamber of the eye.
The actual Visian ICL
procedure takes approximately 15 minutes and is performed on an
outpatient basis. Your eye's natural lens will not be removed.
Normally, very little discomfort is associated with this procedure. Eye
drops will be used to numb your eyes and you may receive a mild
sedative. Eye drops or oral medication may be prescribed after your
I offer our patients the Visian ICL:
- Quality of vision
- The Visian ICL offers sharp, clear vision with excellent contrast.
The lens is made of Collamer, an unique material that transmits light
and reduces reflections that can interfere with vision.
- Safety - This
unique lens is inserted through a micro incision. The procedure takes
approximately 15 minutes and is performed on an outpatient basis.
- Removable - The
Visian ICL doesn't change the structure of the eye or the cornea.
Although it's designed to be permanent, it can be removed with a simple
- Invisible and undetectable
- You won't be able to see the Visian ICL in your eye, and neither will
anybody else. Exceptional quality of vision will be the only reminder
that you have a Visian ICL.
- Excellent for a wide range of
vision correction needs - Anyone seeking clear vision
may be a candidate for the Visian ICL, including patients with thin
corneas or extreme vision correction needs. The Visian ICL does not
cause or contribute to dry eyes.
Dr. Cohen will be
glad to answer any questions you have about the Visian ICL. Or to find

cataract and some refractive surgery,
or lens-replacement procedures, vision is improved by
replacing the eye's natural lens with an intra-ocular lens (IOL). IOLs
come in different powers and sizes to compensate for each patient's
individual needs. For best vision after cataract surgery, precise
measurements must be taken to determine which IOL to implant. The
IOLMaster is a high-precision instrument revolutionizing all previous
techniques and setting a new standard for IOL calculations, called
Optical biometry using
IOLMaster does not subject our patients to any discomfort. No local
anesthesia is required and there is no risk associated with taking the
Why I've invested in the IOLMaster:
- The difference between good vision and great
vision after cataract surgery can be attributed your surgeon's skills
and to the diagnostic technology used to calculate the appropriate IOL.
This technology in my hands provides our patients with the opportunity
for the best possible visual outcome.
- The IOLMaster is a great advancement in IOL
- The risk of confusing right and left eye
measurements is eliminated with this technology. The IOLMaster
automatically detects the right or left eye while taking the
- Axis length, corneal radii and anterior-chamber
depth of the eye are measured with the IOLMaster.
Multiple instruments integrated into one location provides our
patients with a higher level of comfort.
- Measuring the eye with the IOLMaster takes less
time than using ultrasound, the traditional form of measurement that
Heidelberg Retinal Tomographer
It is estimated that over two
million Americans have some type of glaucoma and half of them do not
know it. Because vision lost to glaucoma cannot be restored, early
detection and treatment is essential.
During the past decade, major
eye centers around the world have used scanning laser systems from
Heidelberg Engineering for their research and clinical work.
The Heidelberg Retinal
Tomographer is an advanced diagnostic tool that can detect glaucoma at
its earliest stages. To develop this technology, Heidelberg Engineering
integrated the experience from more than one million exams, advice from
hundreds of users, and research data from around the world. They added
to that the latest available technology in electronics, optics, and
software, creating a glaucoma detection system that has become the
system of choice for ophthalmologists throughout the world.
invested in the Heidelberg Retinal Tomographer:
- Study results have confirmed the technology
provides consistent data leading to precise diagnosis of glaucoma.
- The Heidelberg can accurately differentiate
between normal eyes and early glaucomatous eyes - before any vision
loss has occurred.
- The three-dimensional analysis by laser
scanning tomography has been shown to be superior to all other imaging
- Because of its advantages, this technology is
now generally accepted and used to provide the best service possible
for glaucoma patients and patients at risk.
