From spectacles to contact lenses to laser eye surgery, the Visian ICL procedure leads in the next generation of eyesight correction. Many vision correction treatments promise a better standard of eyesight, but not many can deliver the standard produced with the Visian ICL. It’s not for nothing it is called High Definition Vision, with many patients reporting clearer vision with greater depth and dimension, after undergoing the procedure.
Data from research, approved by the FDA, has shown that vision correction surgery using the Visian ICL procedure is safe and. It also has shown that the Visian ICL has distinctive benefits over conventional refractive surgical procedures such as PRK and LASIK, with a lower chance of the side effects of post-operative unwanted visual distortions (called “higher order aberrations”) compared to LASIK.
The ICL Procedure
The procedure is a short 15-20 minute outpatient procedure. Topical anaesthetic eye drops are applied prior to the implantation of the Visian ICL, to eliminate any pain. The surgeon then creates a micro-aperture to place the lens into the eye. The lens is first folded and as the lens is injected, it gently unfolds in your eye. Patients can then experience a very quick improvement in their vision quality.
What are ICLs
While you may have read it misnamed as the Implantable Contact Lens, the Visian ICL officially means Implantable Collamer Lens. Collamer is a technically advanced artificial eye lens material exclusive to STAAR Surgical. As a result of the collagen used in Collamer, it is biocompatible and there is no risk of an adverse reaction. Advantages of using collamer are its UV protection and anti-reflection properties. Based on these conditions the Visian ICL is the optimum choice for an implanting a lens in your eye which you want to last a lifetime.
If you are over 21 years with a stable eye prescription, you are an ideal candidate for this treatment. The procedure is able to treat patients with thin corneas, dry eyes and also patients with low and extreme high refractive errors. In fact, if you are otherwise unsuitable for laser eye surgery Visian ICL may be the best eyesight correction option for you.
Visian ICL is suitable for prescriptions up to:
500,000 lenses and growing
The rapidly growing use of this vision correction procedure has seen Visian ICLs implanted in over 500,000 eyes worldwide. Superior athletes, celebrities and even the US Military have chosen this treatment as the best technology for their surgical vision correction. Indeed, more than 98% of US Military patients treated from Visian are obtaining 20/20 or better vision. Imagine what the Visian ICL procedure could do for you!
