ICL (Implantable Contact Lenses)

Experience sharper, clearer, and more vivid vision in a quick, 15-minute procedure

The Visian ICL™ is an Implantable Collamer® Lens that is surgically inserted into your eye between the iris (the colored part of the eye) and the natural lens.

Unlike traditional contact lenses, the lens remains in place, maintenance free, for the duration you are satisfied with your vision. If your vision changes drastically, however, it can be removed.

The ICL procedure is an outpatient procedure that generally takes 15 minutes per eye. Like LASIK, recovery is relatively quick and you can usually expect to return to work within a couple of days of surgery.

Are you a candidate for a Visian ICL™ procedure?

If you are between 21 and 45 and nearsighted, you are an excellent candidate for a Visian ICL™ procedure. It is preferable you have not previously had ophthalmic surgery or a history of ophthalmic disease such as glaucoma, iritis or diabetic retinopathy.

ICL is also ideal for candidates with any of the following conditions:

  • Thin Corneas. The cornea is the curved portion on the front surface of the eye. The Visian ICL™ does not have any effect on the cornea and may be appropriate if you have thin corneas.
  • Dry Eyes. Visian ICL™ does not cause or contribute to dry eyes. If you have dry eyes, ask your doctor if the Visian ICL™ may be the best vision-correction option for you.
  • Extreme Refractive Error. Refractive error in the focusing of light by the eye is a frequent reason for reduced visual acuity.
