The Visian ICL is a new type of vision correction surgery that involves a lens implant instead of using lasers to correct your vision. The Visian Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) is made of collagen polymer, a natural material with little chance of allergic response. The collagen base makes it harmonious with your body’s chemistry. Visian ICL is an implantable lens placed between the colored iris and the human lens in a short outpatient procedure. Unlike alternative lens implants available for nearsightedness, the Visian ICL doesn't require attachment to the delicate iris, and no sutures are needed. While Visian ICL is a newer technology in the U.S., it has been used for many years in Europe and the rest of the world. Numerous patients have benefited from this powerful technology. If you have been told you are too nearsighted, or that your cornea is not suitable for a LASIK or PRK vision correction procedures, then the Visian ICL may be right for you.
