Not Suitable for Laser Eye Surgery?
Severe short/long sight and astigmatism is now treatable at Optimax.
For the majority of patients Laser Eye Surgery is appropriate, however there are many different conditions, which the laser cannot treat.
If your prescription falls outside the treatment range for LASIK
laser eye surgery, then Implantable Contact Lenses
(ICL) or Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) are an option
available to you.
These are implantable lenses that are used for correcting very high prescriptions of short-sight, long-sight and astigmatism.
They are similar to a very small contact lens which is placed inside the eye instead of sitting on the eye's surface. For maximum safety, the lenses are implanted in one eye at a time, allowing about a week for the first eye to recover.
