What is ICL?
Implantable Collamer® Lens is a type of refractive procedure to help correct the most common visual problem, myopia or nearsightedness. Simply put it is a removable lens implant that lets patients break free from glasses and contacts even if they were not a candidate for other procedures like LASIK.
This lens-based solution has been available in the U.S. for almost 15 years and more than 1 Million procedures have been performed worldwide.
Many people choose this because it can be removed in the future if your vision changes (with age, for example).
Additional benefits include:
Sharp, clear vision
99% patient satisfaction
1,000,000 procedures worldwide
Excellent night vision
A removable, upgradable option
Great for those with thin corneas
Does not induce dry eye syndrome
In harmony with your natural eyes
Does not remove corneal tissue
Visian ICL as an additive vision correction procedure
That is, nothing is removed from the eye like corneal tissue, but rather adds a uniquely designed lens made with a specialized Collamer material… which means this lens is biocompatible with your natural eye chemistry and even provides a barrier of UV protection. Many have experienced better vision than they could ever achieve through glasses or contact lenses, as well as at nighttime.
Imagine the possibilities especially for those who enjoy hiking, bicycling, piloting aircraft, photography, running a marathon or performing a triathlon, or any other athletic activity. Imagine the feeling of freedom even if one is not interested in any of those things!
What ICL patients say…
I had a great experience with having ICL surgery with Dr Verner. She explained everything very well and scheduling was easy. The surgery itself went very fast and my eyes were a little sore for a couple of days, but I was able to see 20/20 that afternoon which has never happened for me. It is a whole new world living without glasses and contacts. It was one of the best decisions I have made for my eye health and I am so glad that I made it.
