Many vision correction procedures promise an improved level of vision, but few vision correction options offer the quality and features found with the Visian® ICL. Namely:
Removability for your peace of mind
The advantage of the Visian® ICL is that it can permanently correct your vision, yet no natural tissue is removed in any way during the procedure. If for the unlikely reason you need or wish to remove your Visian® ICLs in the future, your doctor can accommodate you.
Vision correction with a legacy of success
Visian® ICL has been approved in Europe since 1997 and in the U.S. since 2005. In that time, over 550.000 eyes have been implanted with Visian® ICLs by certified, specialized surgeons with a study showing a 99% patient satisfaction rate.
In harmony with your natural eye
For people who value health and wellness the Visian ICL could be the choice for you. The Collamer base of the lens material is biocompatible, meaning it is designed to function in harmony with your natural eye.
The STAAR Visian® ICL and the Visian® TORIC ICL (Visian® TICL) are posterior chamber phakic intraocular lenses. Made of Collamer, STAAR’s proprietary collagen copolymer, the lens rests behind the iris in the ciliary sulcus. This unique material contains a small amount of collagen, which provides excellent biocompatibility and superior optical capability. The lens is gently folded and injected into the anterior chamber through a 3.0mm. The Visian ICL produces not only improved visual acuity (20/20 vision is considered normal visual acuity), but also excellent visual quality. Many patients experience the "Wow" factor when they experience the immediate improvement in the quality of their vision.
