Experience the Freedom and Flexibility of Visian ICL
Life is all about the details, and we want you to enjoy every single one. Visian ICL is made for people who want to experience life without the hassle of glasses or contacts.
What is Visian ICL?
Visian ICL, also called an Implantable Collamer® Lens, is a refractive implant to correct common vision issues like myopia (nearsightedness) and astigmatism. Unlike some other vision correction options, the Visian ICL is an additive technology that corrects vision without the removal of any corneal tissue. The Visian ICL is meant to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contacts and unlike most permanent refractive solutions, Visian ICL is removable.
Visian ICL Procedure – What to Expect
Visian ICL is made of biocompatible Collamer material that works in harmony with your eye. Your expert physician at ICON Eyecare will create a small opening in your cornea that will be used to insert and position the Visian ICL. The procedure is typically painless with numbing eye drops and it typically takes less than 20 – 30 minutes. You can experience improved vision right away and a quick recovery time.

Is Visian ICL Right for Me?
Visian ICL is well-suited for a wide variety of people. Ideal candidates for Visian ICL are aged 21 to 45 with nearsightedness and have maintained a stable prescription for at least one year. Visian ICL is not an option for patients who are pregnant, nursing, or those with a history of eye disease. If you are seeking a solution to decrease or eliminate the cost or frustration of traditional contacts or glasses, Visian ICL may be your answer. Contact your eye doctor to discuss if Visian ICL is right for you.
