If you suffer from vision problems, you understand the hassle that comes with maintaining and replacing contact lenses or eyeglasses. One option for vision correction that your ophthalmologist may be able to provide is Visian ICL. Consider the improvements in vision—and daily life—that Visian ICL may be able to provide for you.
How Visian ICL Works
An implantable contact lens (ICL) is exactly what it sounds like—a soft, durable contact lens that is implanted into your eye to aid your vision. The Visian ICL is made from a soft, foldable material called Collamer, which is similar to the collagen that makes up the natural lens of your eye and is not considered a foreign object by your body. It is inserted into your eye just behind the iris through a tiny incision during a short procedure performed by your ophthalmologist. Once in place, the ICL acts exactly like a normal contact lens. With Visian ICL, you can have clear, perfect vision every time you open your eyes.
What Advantages Visian ICL Provides
If you are not a good candidate for LASIK or PRK surgery because of extreme nearsightedness or other conditions, you may still be able to achieve perfect vision with Visian ICL. This lens takes only 15 minutes to implant, and the procedure can eliminate your need for eyeglasses or removable contact lenses. With over 55,000 procedures performed worldwide, the surgical procedure is safe, well-understood, and effective. Your quality of vision will dramatically improve the second you open your eyes, most often with 20/20 visual acuity or even better after surgery. The lens is invisible to outside observers and does not require maintenance or replacement once implanted, which can amount to big savings if you spend a significant amount on new contacts or glasses every year. Additionally, the implantation procedure leaves the lens of your eye intact and can be reversed, if desired.
