The Top Nine Benefits of Visian ICL
Visian ICL (impantable collamer lens) is considered an Evolution in Visual Freedom™. Here at Fisher-Swale-Nicholson Eye Center, we’re always keeping up with the cutting edge technics, technology, and vision correction options of the times to give our patients access to visual freedom without having to go far. We want our patients to truly master their view.
Here is a visual list that covers the nine benefits of Visian ICL to make the case for why you should choose it over PRK and Lasik.
1. Quick and Easy
Patients can usually expect a 20-30 minute procedure or less and most people are able to resume daily activities in just a few short days with clearer vision.
2. HD Results
Visian ICL allows you to enjoy a new level of vision that’s sharper, clearer, more vivid, and has greater depth and dimension. Night vision is also improved with no induction of halos or glare.
3. Low Maintenance
There is no daily maintenance as with traditional contact lenses, and no concern of problems from daily activities such as swimming and sports. What’s not to like?
Unlike other lenses, the Visian ICL is made from Collamer, a technologically advanced lens material—biocompatible with your body chemistry.
Unlike a contact lens, the intraocular contact lenses (ICL) goes inside the eye, behind the iris (the colored part of the eye). And once in place, the lenses cannot be seen or felt.
In the event of a major prescription change or the availability of new vision correction options, Visian ICL is completely removable.
6. UV Protective
By gently inserting our ICL into the eye we’re able to create a barrier of UV protection. The Collamer material that makes up our ICLs has unique properties that provide UV protection while letting natural visible light pass through unaltered.
7. Suited to High Demands
Since 2006, the Visian ICL has been improving the vision of the bravest people in our nation under harsh conditions. In fact surgeons in the (U.S.) military have implanted nearly 10,000 Visian ICLs with exceptional results. If the Visian ICL can meet the demands of soldiers in the US Military, imagine what it can do for you!
8. Won’t Disappoint
With a very high patient satisfaction rating of 99.4%, you know you won’t be disappointed.
9. Enhances Quality of Life
With vision no longer being a problem or a hinderance in your life, Visian ICL allows you to enjoy life more and focus on what’s important. You’ll be able to do more of the acitivies you felt limited to do before and enjoy the things you love most immeasurably more.
