Visian ICL(Implantable Collamer Lens) - The Next Generation of Vision Technology
The Visian ICL is an implantable collamer lens that works with the eye to correct vision. Unlike traditional contact lenses that go on the surgace of the eye, the Visian ICL is positioned inside the eye between the iris and the natural lens where it stays indefinitely. One of the important advantages of the Visian ICL is that while it can permantely correct your vision, the lens can be simply removed and/or replaced if necessary. Also, concerns involving the cornea typically do not apply to the Visian ICL, as no natural corneal tissue is permanently removed or reshaped in any way during implantation.
The recovery for the Visian ICL is quick and pain-free, and may be as little as one day, due to the very small size of the opening required. Patients typically experience minimal discomfort, and many times go back to work the next day. The Visian ICL may be a great option if you have thin corneas, extreme dry eyes, or extreme refractive error, all of which would make other laser vision correction procedures not applicable.
Visian ICL has been improving the vision of professional athletes as well as meeting the demands of soldiers in the US Military. Watch the video below, visit Visian's website , or call 616-396-2316 for more information.
