LASIK: Q&AAsk a Question
Candidates for Implantable Collamer Lense?
I was told my cornea was too "weak" to be a candidate for laser eye surgery. It was suggested I consider "Implantable collamer lenses". Is this something all doctors recommend in these situations? Are Implantable collamer lenses are well understood and safe technology, or is there still lots of possible error and risk?
