The Visian ICL (Implantable Collamer® Lens) also referred to as an implantable contact lens is an option for patients who have moderate to severe nearsightedness with or without astigmatism that may not be candidates for laser vision correction such as: LASIK, ASA or SMILE. The ICL is implanted behind the iris and in front of the natural lens, is not visible and is made of Collamer®, a biocompatible material that is designed to function in harmony with the natural eye. This alternative delivers sharp, clear vision with the option of surgical reversibility.
