Dr. Jarstad, Dr. Tester, and the Evergreen Eye Center team answered questions about vision correction, provided tours of the facility, and helped patients gain a better understanding of current options in refractive surgery by viewing this revolutionary new procedure live. Dr. Jarstad performed the live surgery using implantable contact lens for patients that are not good candidates for LASIK. Dr. Tester narrated as the procedure was being performed. Patients who have been screened for LASIK but have been told that they are not ideal candidates due to thin corneas, corneal surface disease, keratoconus or significant myopia may still be good candidates for an implantable contact lens. The Vision Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) is placed in the eye to improve focusing without disturbing or replacing a patient’s natural crystalline lens.
