What led me to Visian ICL

Usually by the end of the night my eyes are super dry. If I can just get rid of that part of my life, then that little bit of annoyance of everyday will just be gone. I was already on the path of never fixing or correcting my vision and wearing contacts for the rest of my life.


I met this one chick and we were talking about the zombie apocalypse. My vision is so bad, I cannot tell the difference between zombie and regular person. She knew a lot about Visian ICL which I had no idea about.



The thing that I love about Visian ICL is that they are putting a lens in there that can be removed [by your doctor].

Jennifer’s day-to-day & where Visian ICL helps most.

Morning routine

Twenty years ago I got contacts, I wake up in the morning and travel from my bed all the way downstairs to the sink to get new contacts on. Now I do not even have to worry about it.

“The thing that I love about the Visian ICL is that they are putting a lens in there that can be removed.”

I did a free consultation, that is when they explained everything. What the procedure was like, if I was a good candidate, why I specifically was a good candidate. It is an implantable lens that goes into your eye.

Important Safety Information

The Visian ICL is intended for the correction of moderate to high nearsightedness. Visian ICL and Visian TICL surgery is intended to safely and effectively correct nearsightedness between -3.0 D to -15.0 D, the reduction in nearsightedness up to -20.0 D and treatment of astigmatism from 1.0 D to 4.0 D. If you have nearsightedness within these ranges, Visian ICL surgery may improve your distance vision without eyeglasses or contact lenses. Because the Visian ICL corrects for distance vision, it does not eliminate the need for reading glasses, you may require them at some point, even if you have never worn them before.

Implantation of the Visian ICL is a surgical procedure, and as such, carries potentially serious risks. Please discuss the risks with your eye care professional. Complications, although rare, may include need for additional surgical procedures, inflammation, loss of cells from the back surface of the cornea, increase in eye pressure, and cataracts.

You should NOT have Visian ICL surgery if:

  • Your doctor determines that the shape of your eye is not an appropriate fit for the Visian ICL
  • You are pregnant or nursing
  • You do not meet the minimum endothelial cell density for your age at the time of implantation as determined by your eye doctor
  • Your vision is not stable as determined by your eye doctor

Before considering Visian ICL surgery you should have a complete eye examination and talk with your eye care professional about Visian ICL surgery, especially the potential benefits, risks, and complications. You should discuss the time needed for healing after surgery. For additional information with potential benefits, risks and complications please visit DiscoverICL.com
