Visian ICL

Visian ICL is made for people who want to experience life without the hassle of glasses or contacts.

Visian ICL, also called an Implantable Collamer® Lens, is a refractive implant to correct common vision issues like myopia (nearsightedness) and astigmatism. Unlike some other vision correction options, the Visian ICL is an additive technology that corrects vision but does not remove any corneal tissue. The Visian ICL is meant to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contacts, and unlike most permanent refractive solutions, the Visian ICL is removable.

What to Expect with Visian ICL

The Visian ICL is folded and inserted through a self-sealing micro-incision allowing for quick recovery. The Visian ICL unfolds and is then positioned behind the iris and in front of the natural lens of the eye. Once placed in the eye, the patient will not feel or see the Visian ICL, but they will notice the dramatic improvement in their vision. Due to the biocompatibility of the lens material, the Visian ICL works in harmony with your natural eye.

Benefits of Visian ICL

The Visian ICL offers several benefits to patients, including:

Patient Satisfaction. 99% of patients would have the Visian ICL procedure again.

Short Recovery Time. The procedure itself takes as little as 15 minutes per eye. Most people can resume daily activities in just a few days with clearer vision.

Designed to Be Permanent Yet Is Removable. The Visian ICL provides excellent high definition results without altering the natural shape of the cornea, thus it is completely reversible.

UV Protection. The ICL advanced lens material contains a UV blocker that actually prevents harmful UV rays from entering the eye.

No Dry Eye Syndrome. By not removing and reshaping the corneal tissue, the Visian ICL procedure does not induce dry eye syndrome.

Safety and Effectiveness. Research reviewed by the FDA has shown that the Visian ICL had distinct advantages and a lower chance of resulting in unwanted visual distortions such as glare or halos. Studies have shown that the Visian ICL provides one of the best postoperative results of all refractive procedures available. In a 3-year clinical study, 99% of patients reported having a high level of satisfaction with their results.

ICL And Aging. As we age, the likelihood of developing cataracts increases. A benefit of Visian ICL is that your future options concerning cataract surgery are not affected.
