If you need vision correction, then you may be wondering what your choices are for eye surgery. While LASIK is one option, you have a number of other choices for restoring the clarity of your vision. Keep reading to learn all about Visian ICL, one of the eye surgery options you can choose from.
Visian ICL is a permanent corrective lens that is placed in the eye and provides a high-definition vision that is unlike anything you will experience without the procedure. This eye surgery is like a combination of contact lenses and laser eye surgery, but without the downsides of each option.
How Does It Work?
- Your eye surgeon or vision specialist will make a slit between the layers of your eye, and place the unique collagen and polymer, or Collamer, corrective lens in the eye. It acts like a disposable contact lens, but it is fitted inside the eye for individualized results. The position of the lens within the eye makes it invisible to both the wearer and people looking at the eye, and gives it stability without interfering with the eye's normal movements and actions.
How Quickly Will You See Results?
- The procedure itself takes only about 15 minutes, so it is a short vision correction surgery. Once the Visian ICL is in place, the results will be noticeable right away. The clarity of the results are almost instantaneous, earning this eye correction procedure the “Wow!” factor.
Who Can Have Visian ICL?
- One of the major benefits of Visian ICL is that a wide range of people can benefit from the procedure. People with and without astigmatism can have this procedure. It can also treat a wider range of refractive errors. Even people who aren't candidates for other laser eye correction procedures can have this surgery.
