What is ICL?
ICL, also known as Implantable Collamer Lenses, is a refractive procedure used to correct the common problem of nearsightedness or myopia. Simply put, ICL is a removable lens implant that is a common and attractive alternative to LASIK or other similar procedures.
Collamer technology is an ideal solution for correcting one’s vision and offers patients many unique characteristics, such as being:
- Soft and pliable
- Protective against harmful UV Rays
Are you an ideal candidate for ICL?
Ideal Visian ICL candidates are:
- Between the ages of 21 – 45
- Nearsighted with mild to severe myopia (-3D to -20D)
- Have not had a change in prescription of more than .5D in a year
- Looking for an alternative procedure that does not create dry eye
- Have minor or no astigmatism (2.5D of less)
What is involved with Visian ICL?
Visian ICL procedures are both quick and painless. To begin, pre-op numbing medication is placed into both eyes. Next, a small incision is made at the base of the cornea to prep the eye for the implant. The lens is then folded and inserted into the incision and adjusted to ensure proper positioning. The whole procedure usually takes no longer than 30 minutes. Most patients notice an immediate improvement to their vision following their procedure.
The difference is clear. Visian ICL can be an excellent alternative to LASIK or corrective lenses, allowing patients to see the world naturally with their own eyes. Discover the endless possibilities of Visian ICL today by finding a laser eye center near you. Contact a surgeon to ask any questions you may have regarding the procedure and whether ICL is right for you.
