Contact lenses and glasses can be a hassle and limiting. Visian ICL can treat a wide range of prescriptions, from -3 to -20 diopters.
Visian ICL can help you achieve sharp, clear vision that gives you the freedom to see the world without glasses or contacts. The Visian ICL, also known as the Implantable Collamer® Lens, is a type of refractive procedure to help correct the most common visual problem, myopia.
When it comes to vision correction, deciding what’s best for your eyes can be difficult. Learn about the differences between procedures and see if ICL is the right fit for you.
The Visian ICL procedure is minimally invasive and the lens is implanted through a small opening allowing for a quick procedure and recovery time. ICLs have been improving people’s vision around the world for over 25 years and have been implanted in over 1,000,000 eyes worldwide.
I feel like a big part of health is using what your body already has. Visian ICL is in line with that because it’s keeping your eye completely intact. My eye is still my eye.

The thing that I love about the Visian ICL is that they are putting a lens in there that can be removed.

The Visian ICL is designed for the correction of moderate to high nearsightedness. Visian ICL and Visian TICL surgery is intended to safely and effectively correct nearsightedness between -3.0 D to -15.0 D, the reduction in nearsightedness up to -20.0 D and treatment of astigmatism from 1.0 D to 4.0 D. If you have nearsightedness within these ranges, Visian ICL surgery may improve your distance vision without eyeglasses or contact lenses. Because the Visian ICL corrects for distance vision, it does not eliminate the need for reading glasses, you may require them at some point, even if you have never worn them before.
Implantation of the Visian ICL is a surgical procedure, and as such, carries potentially serious risks. Please discuss the risks with your eye care professional. Complications, although rare, may include need for additional surgical procedures, inflammation, loss of cells from the back surface of the cornea, increase in eye pressure, and cataracts.
You should NOT have Visian ICL surgery if:
Before considering Visian ICL surgery you should have a complete eye examination and talk with your eye care professional about Visian ICL surgery, especially the potential benefits, risks, and complications. You should discuss the time needed for healing after surgery. For additional information with potential benefits, risks and complications please visit DiscoverICL.com
