For many years, the sole method of permanently correcting vision without using contact lenses or glasses was laser for corrective eye surgery. However, the invention of Visian ICL changed all that.

It is now possible to enjoy a quality of vision, which is clearer and sharper compared to the laser eye surgery. Vision corrected by Visian ICL Michigan also offers better dimension and depth.

The Visian ICL,  lens “collaborates” with the eye to enhance the visual quality. Unlike the general contact lens, which are attached to the eye surface, the Visian ICL Michigan lens is placed between the natural lens and the iris (colored portion of eye) where it stays  for a longer, indefinite time. Visian ICL, Michigan is developed from collamer, a revolutionary lens material. The presence of collagen in collamer, makes it compatible with eye and offers exceptional vision quality.

Advantages of Visian ICL

  1. Permanent, yet removable: A startling advantage of Visian ICL is that even as it permanently corrects the vision, the ICL lens could be removed or replaced when needed. Corneal concerns are also not applicable to Visian ICL, as there is no need to remove the corneal tissue or the reshape it during the surgery.
  2.  No dry eye issues:The procedure usually does not contribute to dry eyes. However, you need to consult your doctor before undergoing the surgery to know whether it will be suitable for you or not.
  3. Short recovery time: Recovery from Visian ICL procedure is pain-free. A The recovery time is also quite short compared to other vision correction procedures. The tiny size of surgical opening means that patients can return home within 24 hours. However, it is important to follow the doctor’s advice to ensure that the recovery period is quick.
  4. Protection from UV light: Eyes can be damaged due to longer term UV light exposure. An intense exposure may result in a greater probability of ocular disorders like cataract development and a few retinal problems. The materials used in Visian ICL procedure incorporate a UV block, which prevents harmful UVB and UVA rays from penetrating into the eye. This prevents UV related disorders in the eye.

Since Visian ICL surgery does not change the eye structure, it is possible to remove the lens and replace it in case of substantial vision changes with growing age or if another eye operation is due.
