Diving Deep into Implantable Collamer Lens & Solutions for Tunnel Vision
Collamer is a collagen copolymer that contains a small amount of purified collagen, which occurs naturally in your body. Its name comes from a combination of the words “collagen” and “polymer,” it is a proprietary material used exclusively by Kraff Eye Institute for example in the vision correction products, including Presb-ICL lenses.
Some significant benefits of the Collamer make it one of the most differentiating aspects of our exceptional vision correction solutions and Tunnel Vision Treatments:
Collamer is biocompatible, allowing our lenses to work in natural harmony with the eye. The implantation of our lenses does not require the extraction of the lens of the eye. The biocompatibility of the Collamer ensures that our lenses sit “quietly” and comfortably and remain stable on the eyes.
Soft And Flexible
Our lenses are soft and flexible because they are made with Collamer. This soft and flexible structure of our lenses makes it easy for doctors to implant them into the eyes through a small incision safely.
Clarity With Collamer
The tremendous benefits of Collamer make our ICL family of vision correction lenses the best choice for patients seeking life-changing visual freedom. Not only do they give you the clarity and confidence you need to get back to enjoying the things you love, but they also maintain the ability to extract them in the future if necessary.
This is because our ICL lenses, other than how your doctor implants them and where they are placed, do not require the removal of anything in your natural eye. Thus, with our Presb-ICL lenses, there is no need to alter the cornea or remove the lens, compared to other vision correction surgical options for presbyopia.
Tunnel Vision: What Is It, And What Causes It?
Tunnel vision is a phenomenon that refers to the ability to perceive all the stimuli in our environment in a stressful situation. Tunnel vision is a very particular phenomenon that refers to the ability to perceive all the stimuli in our environment; that is, when people are faced with a stressful situation, and their attention is diverted towards the threat, the main concern of the tunnel. Problem.
This phenomenon blinds people to a large part of reality, especially when it is a stressful or dangerous situation, and then all our attention and critical thinking decrease, and decision-making becomes impulsive and could be the least appropriate.
Tunnel vision due to stress or anxiety refers to a decrease in attention not only in the visual field but also in our hearing and stimuli. We do not pay attention because it seems unimportant to us now. That is, tunnel vision means that when our vision is focused on something, our hearing decreases, and we do not hear anything from the outside, and when the hearing is in the tunnel, visual attention decreases.
Tunnel vision affects our senses and perception as a whole. If the stress is too severe, the auditory receptors in the brain can shut down completely. This type of phenomenon can be produced due to a shot of adrenaline due to fear that produces a determined and very dangerous threat. Faced with a situation of this type, several physiological changes occur in the body that prepare it to face danger and that make us focus our attention on the dangerous situation, intensifying the senses at that point and fading everything else so as not to lose concentration.
In the face of danger, the brain detects the threat and quickly adjusts the visual focus of the eyes on the danger, generating the tunnel effect. At that time, the adrenaline discharged by the adrenal glands dilates the pupils and occupies the entire bloodstream. At that moment, a large amount of light enters the eye without time to adapt, which affects the peripheral observation capacity and is what we call tunnel vision.
Tunnel vision is not beneficial because we cannot focus on a single point and forget everything surrounding us. Adrenaline shots often restrict critical thinking, senses, and fine motor skills leading to impulsive decisions that aren’t the right ones.
To reduce or cancel the tunnel effect, one must be aware that it exists and occurs in situations of stress and anxiety; for this reason, it is important to lower the tension level to resume the situation’s broad vision. Deep breathing can be a good technique to reduce stress and thus be able to regain control. Having our brain relaxed helps to dedicate more resources to analyzing the circumstances.
