What if you didn’t have to take out your contact lenses each day? Eye Consultants of Texas has offered the Verisyse™ Phakic Intraocular Lens for years, a permanent contact lens (meaning you don’t have to change it – even for sleeping). What’s more, founder Phillips Kirk Labor, MD was the first Ophthalmologist in Dallas or Fort Worth to perform a Verisyse procedure.
The Verisyse lens is placed in front of the natural lens attached to the iris to correct moderate to severe nearsightedness. “Phakic” means that the Verisyse works with the natural lens still in place, allowing you to see just as clearly as with traditional contacts.
For years, the contact lens has been considered a good alternative to wearing eyeglasses for all sorts of reasons. Today, LASIK is a great alternative to wearing either. If you’re not a candidate for LASIK (or not ready for it), this lens is ideal for providing clear vision without the hassle of removing your contact lenses daily.
Also referred to as an implantable contact lens, the Verisyse™ Phakic Intraocular Lens is one of two types of permanent contact lenses Eye Consultants of Texas offers. Contact us for an evaluation so we can help you make the right choice.
