About Visian ICL

Visian ICL Cost

The cost of the Visian ICL is largely determined by the doctor you choose to improve your vision. As with any premium product or technology, there are significant benefits and advantages making the product a premium solution. Contact a Visian ICL surgeon to discuss the your financing options.


Some of the premium benefits of the Visian ICL include:

  • High Definition Vision: Vision that is sharper, clearer and more vivid than other procedures. When compared to other corneal refractive procedures, like LASIK, the Visian ICL may produce more crisp and clearer vision as evidenced by fewer higher order aberrations.1
  • Permanent yet Removable: One of the most common concerns people have about LASIK is that the procedure permanently changes the eye. One of the important advantages of the Visian ICL is that while it can permanently correct your vision, in the unlikely event that an ICL patient experiences negative side effects after surgery, the lens can be removed and/or replaced if necessary.
  • Instant Visual Improvement: After the simple 15-minute outpatient procedure, patients experience an immediate improvement in vision quality and are “Wowed” by the results. The recovery for the Visian ICL is quick and pain-free, and may be as little as one day.
  • Flexibility for the Future: While Lasik involves cutting and removing eye tissue that cannot be replaced, concerns involving the cornea typically do not apply to the Visian ICL. In fact, no natural corneal tissue is permanently removed or reshaped in any way during implantation of the Visian ICL leaving you open and flexible for future vision procedures.
  • UV Protection: Long-term exposure to UV radiation can damage the eyes; and longer term or more intense exposure increases the chance of eye disorders including the development of cataracts and some retinal problems. As an added feature, the Visian ICL advanced lens material contains a UV blocker that actually prevents harmful UV rays from entering the eye.

When beginning to consider a refractive procedure and its costs, it’s important to think about the costs associated with continued use of glasses and contact lenses. The dollar amounts over the long haul may surprise you.


The Value of HDTV?

Remember when the first HDTV’s came out? At first, you thought your standard definition television was great for watching your favorite shows, movies and sporting events, but then you caught your first glimpse of High Definition television. Knowing that without an HDTV you’d be missing out on the highest quality picture available was enough to persuade many to upgrade despite a premium price. Imagine knowing there is the best quality HD vision out there for you. And instead of a TV that you watch for 2 hours a day, the Visian ICL can give you HD quality vision your every waking hour. Because, the Visian ICL, like the best quality HDTVs, is a premium product, you can expect the cost of the procedure to be higher than other refractive procedures.

Payment plans typically range from 6 months to 60 months and can be adjusted to suit your financial goals.  Monthly payment plans can be as low as a dinner out each month.
