What is Visian ICL?
An Evolution in Visual Freedom TM
From Glasses to Contacts to LASIK, the Visian ICL ushers in a new generation of vision technology. Many vision correction procedures promise an improved level of vision, but few alternatives offer the level of quality and features found with the Visian ICL.
What is ICL? While you may have heard it called the Implantable Contact Lens, the Visian ICL officially stands for Implantable Collamer Lens. Collamer is a technologically advanced lens material proprietary to STAAR Surgical. Because of the collagen base in Collamer, it is biocompatible with your body and in harmony with your natural eye. Among Collamer’s advantages are its anti-reflectivity and UV protection. The Visian ICL is the best choice for a lens that is going to remain in your eye for a lifetime.
A Simple Procedure
The Visian ICL procedure is a short 20-30 minute outpatient procedure. Prior to the implantation of the Visian ICL, you will receive topical anesthetic drops to minimize discomfort. The doctor then creates a small opening to insert the lens. The lens is folded and loaded into a small cartridge and as the lens is injected, it gently unfolds in your eye. Patients then often experience quick improvement in vision quality and.
If you are between the ages of 21 and 45 and nearsighted, you might be an excellent candidate for the Visian ICL. The Visian ICL is often able to treat patients with thin corneas, dry eyes and patients with low and extreme high nearsightedness. In fact, if you have thin corneas or dry eyes, ask your doctor if the Visian ICL may be the best vision correction option for you.
