Why Visian ICL
Visian ICL Benefits
1. Vision correction benefits designed to delight you.
Many vision correction procedures promise an improved level of vision, but few vision correction alternatives offer the quality and features found with the Visian ICL. Namely:
- Does not induce dry eye syndrome;
- Sharp, Clear Vision with
great depth and dimension;
- Excellent Night Vision;
- Great for those with thin corneas
- UV protection built into the biocompatible lenses;
- A typically quick, 15 minute procedure and most people are able to resume daily activities in just a few short days with clearer vision
- Treats moderate to high myopia (nearsightedness).

2. A procedure that offers removability for your peace of mind.
One of the most common concerns people have about laser based correction is that the procedure permanently changes the shape of their eye by removing corneal tissue. The advantage of the Visian ICL is that it can permanently correct your vision, yet no natural tissue is removed or reshaped in any way during the procedure. If for the unlikely reason you need or wish to remove your Visian ICLs in the future, your doctor can accommodate you.
3. Precise vision correction with a legacy of success.
Visian ICL has been approved in Europe since 1997 and in the U.S. since 2005. In that time, over 500,000 eyes have been implanted with Visian ICLs by certified, specialized surgeons with study showing a 99% patient satisfaction rate .
4. The vision correction procedure that’s in sync with your body.
For people who value health and wellness the Visian ICL could be the choice for you. The collamer base of the lens material is 100% biocompatible, meaning it is designed to function in harmony with your body’s chemistry.
5. So say goodbye to the hassles of Glasses and Contacts!
The Visian ICL can give you the freedom to live a life uninhibited by the day-to-day lifestyle demands of glasses and contacts. Your favorite activities and new adventures are on the horizon in usually a few short days. Find out today if the Visian ICL is right for you.
