The Visian ICL is a soft, flexible lens that is surgically placed in a near sighted eye to correct vision to reduce the dependency on glasses and/or contact lenses. It is typically reserved for higher prescriptions, starting at -6.00 and up to -20.00, however it is available for as little as -3.00 diopters of correction.
The lens is soft, like a contact lens, and is surgically positioned in the eye behind the iris (the colored part of the eye) and in front of the lens of the eye. It corrects your vision and is basically invisible once implanted. The Visian ICL does not involve any reshaping surgery of your cornea and it can be removed if your vision changes dramatically, or if you need cataract surgery later in life. It also offers Ultra Violet protection.
The procedure takes15-20 minutes and the recovery time is quick.
We look forward to talking to you about your possible candidacy for this type of refractive surgery, and to answering any questions you may have.
