Laser Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) is an FDA approved surgical procedure intended to reduce dependency on eyeglasses or contact lenses. LASIK is the most commonly performed vision correction procedure and is performed on nearly 1 million patients each year to correct myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism by permanently altering the shape of the cornea, the eye's thin, transparent covering. Corneal reshaping increases the eye's focusing power and improves vision.
ICL- Implantable Collamer Lens
The Visian ICL offers individuals an alternative to traditional laser vision correction for achieving contact lens and spectacle freedom. The Visian ICL uses a unique collamer technology that is highly compatible with the body and provides vision that is vivid and sharp.
This implantable lens works inside your eye to correct your vision. The Visian ICL is inserted into the eye rather than placed on the surface of the eye. The ICL is intended to stay in position indefinitely, continuing to provide a long term solution to achieving clear vision. With the potential for good night vision and highly accurate results following a comfortable ten to fifteen minute procedure, the Visian technology is helping to revolutionize vision correction.
