At Southern California Eye Physicians & Surgeons, we pride ourselves in having the capability to offer our patients a complete selection of vision correction procedures that can be customized to their unique needs and provide the best possible outcomes. That’s why we’re excited to offer the Visian ® ICL™ (implantable Collamer® lens) at our center, an advanced vision correction option for our potential patients that is growing in popularity. To date more than 400,000 Visian ICLs have been implanted in patients worldwide. The Visian ICL is a thin, soft lens made of Collamer implanted in the eye to permanently correct moderate to severe nearsightedness.
In fact, more than 98% of military personnel that have opted for the Visian ICL are seeing 20/20 or better.
The Visian ICL (Implantable Collamer Lens) is made of an advanced soft-material lens, composed of 100% biocompatible collagen copolymer, that provides not only UV protection and permanent vision correction, but also a quality of vision that is sharper, clearer, and more vivid than that what one can achieve with glasses or contacts. Additionally, unlike LASIK, the Visian ICL is removable if necessary and the procedure does not permanently alter the shape of your cornea.
If you are between the ages of 21 and 45, and suffer from a moderate to severe degree of nearsightedness, then you may be a candidate for this great procedure and the advantages it provides.
Feel free to contact us at Southern California Eye Physicians & Surgeons with any questions that you may have, or to schedule an eye exam to discover if the Visian ICL or an alternative vision correction procedure is right for you.
