What Can Visian ICL Correct?
Visian ICL is well-suited for a wide variety of people. Ideal candidates for Visian ICL are aged 21 to 45 nearsightedness and have maintained a stable prescription for at least one year. Visian ICL is not an option for patients who are pregnant, nursing, or those with a history of eye disease. If you are seeking a solution to decrease or eliminate the cost or frustration of traditional contacts or glasses, Visian ICL may be your answer. Contact your eye doctor to discuss if Visian ICL is right for you.
What Are The Steps of Visian ICL?
Visian ICL is made of biocompatible Collamer material that works in harmony with your eye. Your eye doctor will create a small opening in your cornea that will be used to insert and position the Visian ICL. The procedure is typically painless with numbing eye drops and it typically takes less than 20 – 30 minutes. You can experience improved vision right away and a quick recovery time.
Your eye is numbed with a topical anesthetic drops.
Your surgeon will make a small corneal incision through which the ICL will be inserted into the eye.
The ICL is positioned behind the iris and in front of the natural lens.
