The Visian Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) is a safe and effective treatment option for patients who are unable to have LASIK or PRK. Visian ICL™ can give you the freedom to see the world without the hassles of glasses and contact lenses.

Experience the Freedom and Flexibility of Visian ICL

Life is all about the details, and we want you to enjoy every single one. Visian ICL is made for people who want to experience life without the hassle of glasses or contacts.

Visian ICL, also called an Implantable Collamer® Lens, is a refractive implant to correct common vision issues like myopia (nearsightedness) and astigmatism. Unlike some other vision correction options, the Visian ICL is an additive technology that corrects vision without the removal of any corneal tissue. The Visian ICL is meant to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contacts. Unlike most permanent refractive solutions, Visian ICL is removable.

Visian ICL Procedure – What to Expect

Visian ICL is made of biocompatible Collamer material that works in harmony with your eye. The procedure is painless and performed under IV sedation. The pupil is dilated and numbing drops are placed on the eye. Dr. Hamilton will create a small, self-sealing opening in your cornea that will be used to insert and position the Visian ICL. The procedure typically takes less than 20 – 30 minutes per eye. Both eyes can be done on the same day or separately. You will experience improved vision right away and a quick recovery time.

Is Visian ICL Right for Me?

Visian ICL is well-suited for a wide variety of people.

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.
