Now Offering the Visian Toric ICL, an Innovative Solution to Myopia and Astigmatism
Date:11/28/2018

nJoy Vision is now able to provide a new solution for patients with moderate to high levels of myopia and astigmatism in one easy procedure following FDA approval of STAAR Surgical’s Visian Toric ICL. The first procedure in the state of Oklahoma, using the Toric ICL, is scheduled at nJoy Vision OKC on November 29th by Edward Jones, MD and at nJoy Vision Tulsa on December 7th by Heidi Priester, DO.

“The Toric ICL approval is an important milestone in our armamentarium of vision correction solutions, and we are please to be the first to perform the procedure in the state of Oklahoma,” said Brad Britton, MD, nJoy Vision Medical Director.

The Visian Toric ICL is an innovative lens from STAAR Surgical which is placed behind the iris and in front of the eye’s crystalline lens to correct vision. This method works with the eye to not only restore clear and sharp vision(1)(2)(3) but also provide UV protection and excellent night vision(4). The Visian Toric ICL’s implantation eliminates multiple surgical procedures by correcting astigmatism and myopia simultaneously(5). In a procedure that takes less than 30 minutes, Visian Toric ICL lets doctors treat more types of patients with higher levels of astigmatism as well as myopia while preserving the corneal structure of the eye.

“FDA’s approval of STAAR’s Visian Toric ICL provides an exciting treatment option for myopic patients with astigmatism in search of visual freedom. We are pleased to partner with nJoy Vision, who will be the first clinic in Oklahoma to offer this technology to their patients,” said Jim Francese, Sr. Vice President Commercial Operations, STAAR Surgical.

FDA approval was based on results from the Visian Toric ICL clinical study which reported 98.4% of patients would have the Visian Toric ICL surgery again. The data also showed that eyes implanted with the Visian Toric ICL maintained rotational stability(6).

“We work with referring doctors who see patients that struggle with their eyesight every day” Dawn Holsted, O.D., President & CEO, nJoy Vision states. “I’m thrilled that there’s a lens-based solution now available to help U.S. patients suffering from both astigmatism and myopia. The Visian Toric ICL allows us to improve patients’ lives with one easy-to-implant lens.”
