Advancing the Options for Eye Care for Their Patients

Topeka, Lawrence and Manhattan, Kan. (May 17, 2019) – Arla Genstler, MD of Genstler Eye Center recently placed a bilateral toric Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) in a patient. This was the first time this procedure has been done in the local region. “I am pleased to provide this technology to our area’s patients,” said Arla Genstler, MD. “This is a great option for individuals with high amounts of myopia with astigmatism who are not necessarily good candidates for LASIK surgery.”

The toric Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) has been approved by the FDA and is now available to patients in the local area. The toric ICL is an artificial lens designed to correct myopic astigmatism. It is permanently implanted inside the eye behind the iris and in front of the natural lens. The device is indicated for patients ages 21-45, who want to be less dependent on glasses and contacts.

“We are proud to offer our patients the most advanced technology to restore their full range of vision,” said Genstler. In practice since 1990, Genstler Eye Center has three locations: 3630 SW Fairlawn, Topeka; 1502 Browning Place, Manhattan; and 2200 Harvard Rd. Lawrence.
