If you are seeking clear vision, but you are not a candidate for LASIK surgery, Visian ICL might be right for you!
Visian ICL is great for people with thin corneas and/or high glasses prescriptions that are too high for LASIK to correct.
With the Visian ICL (Implantable Contact Lens), we can provide you with clear, sharp vision without some of the risks included in other laser vision correction methods.
What is Visian ICL?
The Visian ICL is a type of refractive lens otherwise known as a phakic IOL. The natural lens inside of the eye is not removed during the procedure, which is why it is referred to as “phakic”. The natural lens is left in place, and the ICL is positioned in front of the natural crystalline lens, behind the iris. The Visian ICL procedure is performed as an alternative to other vision correction procedures such as LASIK, PRK, and Refractive Lens Exchange.
While the Visian ICL makes a great alternative for those who are not good LASIK candidates, Visian ICL may be better for some than others. Visian ICL is best for those who are between 21 and 45, who suffer from moderate to severe nearsightedness.
One thing that sets the Visian ICL apart from other vision correction procedures is that if for any reason your vision changes, the ICL can be easily removed and replaced. Another procedure can also be done at any time. With the ICL, you can still wear glasses or contact lenses if you need to; but that is not usually necessary.
