Extensive research and development preceded the introduction of the Visian ICL™. It is now being used by more than 100,000 patients worldwide. The satisfaction rate among patients is extremely high – above 99%! A type of phakic IOL, the Visian ICL™ provides excellent and stable outcomes for those with a refractive error as low as -3.00 diopters up to as high as -20.00 diopters!
The Visian ICL™ implantation procedure typically takes about 15 minutes and is performed on an outpatient basis. Please note that someone will have to drive you to and from surgery. Normally, very little discomfort is associated with the Visian ICL™ implantation procedure. A light topical or local anesthetic is administered and a mild sedative may be given. Eye drops will be prescribed and you will need to come back the next day for a follow-up visit.
You will notice immediate results after this simple 15-minute procedure. A few hours after the procedure you will be able to leave the clinic and will experience high quality vision you never thought possible.
