Honolulu Opthalmologist Alan R. Faulkner, MD Discusses Advantages of Implantable Contact Lenses (ICL) over LASIK Laser Vision Correction

The ICL is designed to correct blurred vision that accompanies nearsightedness, or myopia. Unlike LASIK, the Visian ICL™ does not permanently change the structure of the eye, and the lens itself is removable. Dr. Faulkner says the procedure is help
