STAAR®Surgical Company's Visian ICL - Experience Vision As It Should Be
Imagine being able to enjoy life without worrying about your glasses or contacts. The Visian ICL by STAAR®Surgical Company offers you freedom from nearsightedness with or without astigmatism* and farsightedness*. With the Visian ICL (implantable Collamer lens), you could enjoy the beauty of a sunset, go snorkeling and observe amazing sea life, see a friend's smile from across the room, or simply sit anywhere in a movie theater without having to fuss with glasses or contacts.
The Visian ICL, often referred to as an implantable contact lens, is inserted into the eye during a short surgical procedure. Unlike LASIK or PRK, the Visian ICL implantation does not permanently change the shape of the eye. Also, the Visian ICL may improve your quality of vision better than many other refractive procedures.
Advantages of the VISIAN ICL
An ICL in the eye is not visible to other people.
There is a difference between visual acuity (20/20 vision is deemed as normal visual acuity) and visual quality. Many refractive procedures offer the promise of improved visual acuity, but the quality of your vision may vary based on the procedure you choose.
STAAR Surgical Company's Visian ICL has a proven track record of improved quality of vision. When compared to other refractive surgical procedures, the Visian ICL creates sharper vision. The immediate improvement of vision quality produces the "WOW" factor in patients.
The "high definition" quality of vision produced by the Visian ICL makes this proven, technologically advanced vision correction procedure the choice for patients who need and expect high quality results. The U.S. military has embraced the Visian ICL because of the visual clarity it achieves. This feature also makes the implantable Collamer lens the choice for patients with an active lifestyle and those who cannot accept anything less than high quality vision.
If you cannot settle for "good enough" vision and demand high quality of vision, the Visian ICL is clearly the refractive procedure choice for you. Find a qualified Visian ICL ophthalmologist or contact STAAR Surgical Company to learn more about this breakthrough treatment of myopia.
*Visian ICL's are approved in the U.S. to correct myopia. ICL's that correct for astigmatism or hyperopia have not been approved for use in the U.S.
