LASIK Alternatives Information

Our surgeons are committed to helping patients understand how their vision works and what their corrective surgery treatment options are. We believe that the more patients know about our procedures, the better able they are to make good decisions regarding vision correction.

Am I a Candidate?

At Bonner Eye Clinic, we offer free consultations for individuals interested in ICLs and Natural Lens Exchange. Together with our surgeons, patients can determine if these procedures are appropriate for them. However, there are a few general requirements for each procedure:  

Am I a Candidate for ICLs?

Patients who are leery of laser surgery are often good candidates for intraocular contact lenses (ICLs). Since ICLs are reversible, the patient has the option to have them removed if they are unhappy with the results. Ideal candidates for ICLs include:

  • Patients who have had stable vision for at least one year prior to evaluation
  • Patients whose eyes have been free from injury or disease for at least one year
  • Patients who are at least 21 years of age
  • Patients who do not suffer from an autoimmune disease such as Lupus
  • Patients who are not pregnant or nursing

Am I a Candidate for Natural Lens Exchange?

Natural Lens Exchange is often a good procedure for patients who are not candidates for LASIK or other laser refractive surgeries. This includes:
  • Patients previously unable to have LASIK.
  • Patients with a high degree of myopia or hyperopia
