What is the Visian ICL
The Visian ICL, also known as the implantable collamer lens, is a type of refractive procedure to help correct nearsightedness. For years, the only method that didn’t involve glasses or contacts was corrective laser eye surgery. With the advent of the Visian ICL, however, that’s all changed. For people who value health and wellness the Visian ICL could be the choice for you. The collamer base of the lens material is 100% biocompatible, meaning it is designed to function in harmony with your body’s chemistry.
Good Candidates for the Visian ICL
If you are between the ages of 21 and 45, nearsighted, and have had stable vision for a year, you are an excellent candidate for the Visian ICL. The Visian ICL is made to help correct patients with low myopia (-3 diopters) to high myopia (-20 diopters). Not only is the Visian ICL good for candidates with high myopia, but it may be the perfect option for people who are suffering with severe dry eyes or have thin corneas. The Visian ICL is a simple 15-minute outpatient procedure that has a fast recovery time. One main difference that separates Visian ICL from LASIK and PRK is that the Visian ICL does not use a laser to reshape the corneal surface of your eyes.
The recovery time for the Visian ICL is very quick and comfortable, and may be as little as a day, due to the very small size of the incision required. The incision needed to implant the foldable Visian ICL is tiny and located on the far edge of the cornea, where there is little danger of it interfering with vision. Once the lens is implanted, sutures are typically not needed to close the incision, further simplifying the procedure.
Precise vision correction with a legacy of success
Visian ICL has been approved in Europe since 1997 and in the U.S. since 2005. In that time, over 550,000 eyes have been implanted with Visian ICLs by certified, specialized surgeons with study showing a 99% patient satisfaction rate.
The Visian Lifestyle:
Many vision correction procedures promise an improved level of vision, but few vision correction options offer the quality and features found with the Visian ICL. Namely:
- Does not induce dry eye syndrome
- Sharp, Clear Vision
- Excellent Night Vision
- Great for those with thin corneas
- UV protection built into the biocompatible lenses
- A typically quick, 20-30 minute or less procedure and most people are able to resume daily activities in just a few short days with clearer vision
- Treats moderate to high myopia (nearsightedness)
Removability for your peace of mind
The advantage of the Visian ICL is that it can permanently correct your vision, yet no natural tissue is removed in any way during the procedure. If for the unlikely reason you need or wish to remove your Visian ICLs in the future, your doctor can accommodate you.
