I had my first opportunity to put my Visian ICL eyes to the test recently in the Brazilian Rainforest, and it couldn’t have been more exciting to be able to spot rare species better than ever.Phil Torres, Entomologist, TV Show Host
I feel like a big part of health is using what your body already has. Visian ICL is in line with that because it’s keeping your eye completely intact. My eye is still my eye.Eve Torres Gracie, Jiu Jitsu Instructor, Former WWE Diva, Mom
The ICL Difference
When you compare ICL with other laser vision correction procedures the difference is clear.
No Dry Eye SyndromeCompare With Lasik
Only ICL's proprietary lenses are made of biocompatible Collamer. That means our lens material works in harmony with the natural chemistry of your eye and body. Our ability to utilise materials your eye accepts while not reshaping your cornea means we can minimise unnatural causes of dry eye syndrome.
A Removable OptionCompare With Lasik
We describe our implant process as an additive corrective procedure. Our procedure adds a corrective lens to correct near-sightedness, farsightedness 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 our lens.
Quick Procedure & RecoveryCompare With Lasik
The 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.
