Unlike traditional contact lenses that go on the surface of the eye, the new Visian ICL is surgically inserted into the eye to correct moderate to high amounts of myopia (nearsightedness) and reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contacts. These lenses are currently able to correct myopia from
-3.00 diopters to -15.00 diopters, and have already helped over 55,000 people worldwide to enjoy life without glasses or contacts.
Nearsighted patients may be candidates for the Visian ICL even if they have been turned down for LASIK. This new lens can be implanted in patients with high prescriptions, thin corneas, or dry eyes, which can often disqualify a patient for traditional laser vision correction.
The procedure is similar to cataract surgery but differs in that the natural lens is not removed from the eye. Instead, the ICL is placed in front of your natural lens and works with it to correct vision. The lens is also invisible to the naked eye, and can be removed if necessary.
If you’ve been waiting for a new, safe and effective technology that could give you exceptional vision, now is the time to see if you’re a candidate for the Visian ICL!
