Alternative to LASIK: Visian ICL

Alternative to LASIK: Visian ICL

Implantable Collamer Lenses or Implantable Contact Lenses (ICL) are a good alternative for people who are not suitable for refractive procedures such as LASIK because of:

  • Moderate to severe nearsightedness
  • Thin corneas
  • History of dry eye
  • Large pupils

We offer patients the Visian® ICLTM in Wichita as an excellent alternative to LASIK to treat a wide range of refractive errors (nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism). Take a look at lightning link slots online

How the Visian® ICLTM Works

Made from biocompatible Collamer®, this lens is implanted between your iris and natural lens through tiny corneal incisions. The lens allows light entering the eye to focus on the retina for clear vision. Even though the lens will be invisible to others, it can make your vision sharper and more vivid. Some patients will see more clearly immediately after the procedure is performed.

Benefits of Visian® ICLTM

  • Collamer® lens material works in harmony with your eye’s natural chemistry
  • Less chance of dry eye than LASIK
  • Provides a layer of UV protection for your eyes
  • Permanent, yet removable option for vision improvement
  • Procedure takes just 20-30 minutes
  • Results are often immediate
  • Lens is unnoticeable to others

The procedure itself typically causes very little discomfort and no pain for most patients because light IV sedation is administered and the eye is numbed with a topical anesthetic prior to the procedure. The procedure is performed in a surgery center as an outpatient procedure.
