Intraocular Contact Lens (ICL)
Not every patient is a good candidate for LASIK, but there are other options for improving vision including the ICL, or Intraocular Contract Lens. ICLs are tiny lenses placed inside the eye to improve vision and function much the same as traditional, external contact lenses. The lenses are implanted during a simple outpatient procedure that typically only takes about 15 to 20 minutes.
Although LASIK is still the most widely occurring type of refractive surgery, ICLs offer some advantages for certain patients, particularly those with extreme vision problems.

The ICL Advantage
- ICLs Can Correct Most Any Prescription, Regardless of the Severity.
- Works Well for Patients with Thin Corneas
- Chronic Dry Eye Syndrome is Not a Factor with ICLs
- ICLs are a Reversable Procedure and Can be Adjusted if Necessary
- Immediate Results in Vision
The FDA-approved Visian ILC™, is made of Collamer, a highly biocompatible material composed of copolymer and collagen. The Visian ILC™ is a soft, foldable lens that transmits light and reduces reflections that can interfere with vision, so you can see clearly. The Visian ILC™ is inserted into the eye through a small, micro opening. The lens then gently unfolds in the eye and is positioned between the iris and the natural lens where it stays indefinitely.
Visian ICL™ can give you the freedom to see the world without the hassles of contacts and glasses.
