New Solution for Distance and Astigmatism Vision Correction with the Visian Toric ICL

New treatment available at KE Eye Centers of Texas

ARLINGTON, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–KE Eye Centers of Texas is the first in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex
to provide a new solution for patients with moderate to high levels of
myopia and astigmatism in one simple procedure, following FDA approval
of STAAR Surgical’s Visian Toric ICL.

The Visian Toric ICL is an additive technology, in which a lens 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 vision4. The Visian Toric ICL eliminates
multiple surgical procedures by correcting astigmatism and myopia
simultaneously5. In a procedure that takes less than 30
minutes, Visian Toric ICL lets doctors treat more patients with
astigmatism and 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 KE Eye Centers, who will
be among the first practices in Texas to offer this technology to their
patients,” said Jim Francese, Sr. Vice President Commercial Operations
of 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 again6.

“As one of the more experienced Visian ICL surgeons in the Metroplex, I
am excited to see the addition of Visian Toric ICL to my options for
patients. At KE Eye Centers of Texas, we provide a personalized option
for each patient to achieve the freedom from glasses and contact lenses,
said Dr. Loan Ramsey, of KE Eye Centers.
