What is Visian ICL?

 The Next Generation of Vision Technology 

From Glasses to Contacts to LASIK, the Visian ICL ushers in the next generation of vision technology. Many vision correction procedures promise an improved level of vision, but few can promise the level of quality found with the Visian ICL. It’s called High Definition Vision, its sharper, clearer, with greater depth and dimension, and it’s only available with the Visian ICL.  

  ICL = Implantable Collamer Lens

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 exclusive to STAAR Surgical. Because of the collagen base in Collamer, it is 100% compatible with your body’s natural chemistry. 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 15 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 micro 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 experience an immediate improvement in vision quality and are “Wowed” by the results.  

 Good Candidates

If you are between the ages of 21 and 45 and nearsighted, you are an excellent candidate for the Visian ICL. The Visian ICL is able to treat patients with thin corneas, dry eyes and patients with low and extreme high refractive errors. 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.

500,000 lenses and growing 

The rapidly growing Visian ICL has now been implanted in over 500,000 eyes worldwide. Superior athletes, celebrities and elite US Military personnel have chosen the Visian ICL as the best technology for their individual vision needs. In fact, more than 98% of US Military patients are seeing 20/20 or better. Imagine what the Visian ICL can do for you!
