Now Offering the Visian Toric ICL, an Innovative Solution to Myopia and Astigmatism. New treatment available with Tom Tooma, MD at NVISION Eye Centers, Newport Beach.

[Newport Beach, CA] November 13, 2018 – NVISION Eye Centers 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 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,, but also provide UV protection and excellent night vision.

The Visian Toric ICL’s implantation eliminates multiple surgical procedures by correcting astigmatism and myopia simultaneously. 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 in the U.S. provides an exciting treatment option for myopic patients with astigmatism in search of visual freedom. We are thrilled to be able to offer this lens in the United States and look forward to officially making the Visian Toric ICL available to U.S. surgeons for their patients,” said Caren Mason, STAAR Surgical Company President & CEO.

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.

“I see patients who struggle with their eyesight every day.” Tooma states. “I’m thrilled that there is a lens-based solution now available to help US patients suffering from both astigmatism and myopia. The Visian Toric ICL allows me to improve patients’ lives with one easy-to-implant lens.”
