lasikLASIK eye surgery is a truly remarkable procedure. It’s safe, effective, and has helped countless individuals gain clearer vision without prescription glasses or contacts. Heck, it’s even cost-efficient and is far cheaper than buying a lifetime’s worth of eyeglasses. It’s understandable why this is such a highly sought after procedure. However, due to specific eye conditions, some individuals are not candidates for LASIK. Fear not. There are a wide variety of lesser known but equally effective procedures available to help you get the clearer vision you deserve. At Mattioli Vision Professionals, a Houston eye center, we specialize in several vision correction procedures that are perfect for individuals who are not candidates for LASIK. Here are a couple of our key alternatives for LASIK in Houston.

Raindrop® Near Vision Inlay

Raindrop® Near Vision Inlay is a simple and safe solution for individuals who suffer from presbyopia, commonly known as the aging eye condition. Caused by the hardening of the lens inside the eye, presbyopia can affect the way you see closer objects. If you’re not a candidate for LASIK and find it hard reading small print, Raindrop® Near Vision Inlay might be perfect for you. The inlay itself is composed of water and is placed only in the dominant eye. The procedure is quick, safe, and highly effective. At Mattioli Vision Professionals, we’ve performed more Raindrop® procedures than any other eye center in the U.S. You heard that right. There’s no better place to in the United States, and possibly the world, to get this revolutionary procedure done.

Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL)

Implantable Collamer lenses, commonly known as ICL, are used to help people who have low and high nearsightedness or astigmatism. Also known to be a practical substitution for LASIK, ICLs look and feel similar to contact lenses but are placed inside the eye to offer permanent vision correction. The procedure only takes 10-15 mins per eye and requires no stitches. For over 20 years, ICLs have been trusted by the U.S. military to help soldiers have clear vision during the toughest conditions. Since then, they’ve become a practical solution for those who cannot receive LASIK eye surgery. Click here to learn more about these incredible eye implants.
