Patients with dry eyes related to Sjogrens and other conditions struggle with contact lenses, which are usually uncomfortable to wear. Laser eye surgery is often not advised any many of these patients due to the risk of making the dry eye situation worse. An alternative that works very well and which doesn't exacerbate dry eye is the Visian ICL implantable contact lens. The ICL is a tiny lens that fits inside the eye to correct most levels of prescription and astigmatism. Surgery takes roughly 10 minutes and is painless.
