re associated with very high myopes, over -12.5 diopters. Only one of those eyes was from a patient younger than 40 years of age.  The total study included 526 eyes.
  • Dr. Scott Barnes from Fort Bragg in the U.S. reported that 75% of the soldiers in which he has implanted the Visian ICL see better now than they did with contact lenses before surgery, and none saw worse.  In contrast only 10% of soldiers who underwent LASIK reported better results than with contact lenses and 50% responded their vision was worse.  The average age reported on was 28 years and over one third of the respondents had a refractive error of -6.0 diopters or less.

His data showed that with less than a 2 diopter offset, on average his patients could achieve 20/20 distance vision and 20/25 near vision. In Dr. Lipstock's view, the nanoFLEX IOL is a great option for patients who do
