Visian Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL)
The time has never been better if you’re considering vision correction surgery. We believe in providing our patients with the very best and latest technology available and we consider our practice a FULL SERVICE VISION CORRECTION FACILITY. Are you aware there is an incredible alternative to Lasik and PRK? The Visian Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) was FDA approved in 2005 and over 250,000 lenses have been implanted worldwide. Many happy patients have been fortunate to learn about and ultimately have Visian ICL surgery and are now enjoying high definition vision without the hassle of contacts or glasses, a dream they never thought would come true.
The Visian ICL is an implantable Collamer lens that works with the eye to correct vision and blocks harmful UVA and UVB rays. Unlike Lasik or PRK, there is no tissue removed from the cornea (eye surface). The Visian ICL is implanted through a tiny incision that takes only minutes to complete and remains between the iris and natural lens of the eye . The lens is undetectable with the naked eye so nobody can see it after implantation and you cannot feel it in your eye. Although designed to last a lifetime, another advantage is that the lens is removable should your vision change significantly over the years. Made with Collamer, a technologically advanced material that is exclusive to STAAR Surgical, it is highly biocompatible.
The product is indicated for use in patients who are between 21-45 years of age who are nearsighted and demand the highest quality of vision for their active lifestyles. In fact, the US Military has embraced this technology and the Visian ICL has been improving the vision of the bravest people in our nation under the harshest conditions imaginable. The results are nothing short of heroic.
Your surgeon will determine if you are a good candidate for the Visian ICL and customize a vision correction plan based on your specific prescription, the health of your eyes and your lifestyle needs. To learn more about the many advantages of the Visian ICL visit www.visianinfo.com
