Additive, Removable Procedure

features-img1

LOWER RATES OF DRY EYE SYNDROME

Visian ICL’s proprietary lenses are made of biocompatible Collamer. That means the lens material works in harmony with the natural chemistry of your eye and body. The ICL’s ability to utilize materials your eye accepts while not reshaping your cornea means it can minimize unnatural causes of dry eye syndrome*.

A REMOVABLE OPTION

The Visian ICL implant process is an additive corrective procedure. The procedure adds a corrective lens to treat nearsightedness and astigmatism. That means that should your prescription update or if other vision needs arise, if you and your doctor decide, your doctor can simply remove the lens.

QUICK PROCEDURE & RECOVERY

The Visian ICL procedure has been refined down to a quick and comfortable process. Most procedures are completed within 20-30 minutes or less. With a minimally invasive procedure, many achieve improved vision nearly immediately. The procedure is performed in our AAAASF* certified surgical facility.

PROTECTION FROM UV RAYS
