Visian Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) is a great alternative for vision correction that does not involve removing eye tissue. For those patients with very thin corneas or extreme nearsightedness or farsightedness, this lens implant can be an excellent option to correct vision without the use of glasses or contacts. While Visian ICL can be a permanent correction for your vision, the lens can be removed or replaced should your vision needs change.
This advanced lens implant contains a UV blocker that prevents harmful UVA and UVB rays from entering the eye. And because your cornea tissue has not been affected by this procedure, dry eye will not be an issue.â€‹
