What is the Visian ICL?

Visian ICL provides High Definition Vision, which is sharper and clearer than most other forms of vision correction. The ICL provides these excellent high definition results without altering the shape of the cornea. The Visian ICL is completely reversible since no corneal tissue is removed.

The Procedure & What to Expect

icl (1) The ICL is gently placed into the eye through a tiny incision in the cornea. Due to its flexibilty, the lens is able to be folded during implantation, allowing for a much smaller surgical incision and quicker recovery. The ICL unfolds and is then positioned behind the iris but in front of the natural lens of the eye.
Once placed in the eye, the patient will not feel the ICL.

Benefits of ICL

  • Short Recovery Time

    The procedure itself takes as little as 15 minutes per eye. There is very little discomfort and you can see immediately after the procedure is performed. Once in place, there is no maintenance required with the ICL like typical contact lenses.

  • Designed to be Permanent, Yet is Removable

    Although the Visian ICL is intended to remain in place permanently, it is removable if necessary.

  • UV Protection

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

  • Safety & 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. In a three year clinical study, 99% of patients reported being satisfied or very satisfied with their results and over 98% reported being able to see 20/40 or better.

  • ICL & Aging

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

“It changed my life completely. It was the best money I ever spent.”
