ICL

Visian ICLNot everyone is a candidate for LASIK eye surgery. Sometimes people have thin corneas or excessive dry eyes and it makes them simply not a good candidate for LASIK eye surgery. Your eye doctors will examine your eyes and determine what the best vision correction option should be. It is our goal at OPN to make sure that you know all your options. Depending on your refractive error we may suggest different types of vision correction. The Visian ICL represents a great option for many patients that may not be good LASIK candidates but also those that have high levels of myopia.

Visian ICL also called the Implantable Collamer Lens. Collamer Lens), created by STAAR® Surgical Company, is a phakic intraocular lens (IOL) for the treatment of myopia and other refractive errors.

Quality of Vision Excellence - High Definition Visian™

Visian ICLThe Visian ICL offers vision correction that's sharper, clearer, more vivid, and has greater depth and dimension than other procedures. The main advantage of the Visian ICL over traditional corrective laser eye surgery is that patients may experience significant improvement in quality of vision after the lens is implanted. When compared to the results of corneal refractive surgery, the Visian ICL may produce superior vision quality as evidenced by fewer higher order aberrations 2. Patients experience a nearly immediate visual recovery and"Wow!" results.

What Happens in Visian ICL surgery?

Visian ICLDuring the ICL procedure no corneal tissue is removed. The lens is inserted through a small, 3 millimeter, self-sealing opening where no stitches are needed. The lens is inserted behind the iris, and in front of the natural lens where it cannot be seen or felt. Vision is significantly improved immediately after surgery, and continues to improve over the next few days. Vision is often described as ultra-high definition. As with all surgeries, there are some risks with ICL surgery. Risk can be minimized by selecting an experienced surgeon and the right surgical environment. Your doctor will discuss potential risks and benefits of ICL surgery with you prior to determining candidacy and help you make an informed decision regarding whether or not ICL surgery is right for you.
