Multifocal Implantable Contact Lenses (ICL)

Life is all about details, and you should be able to enjoy every last bit. Implantable contact lenses (ICLs) are designed for people who want to experience life without the hassle of glasses or contacts.

What is Visian ICL?

Visian ICL is a refractive implant to correct common vision issues like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism. Unlike some other vision correction options, the Visian ICL is an additive technology that corrects vision without the removal of any corneal tissue. The Visian ICL is designed to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contacts. Unlike most permanent refractive solutions, it is removable.

What to Expect from an EVO Visian ICL procedure?

EVO Visian ICL is made of biocompatible Collamer® material that works in harmony with your eye. If you are farsighted, a few weeks before the Visian ICL implant surgery, your eye doctor will create small openings in the coloured part of your eye to allow for flow of the fluid in your eye.

During the procedure, your eye doctor will create a small opening in your cornea that to insert and position the EVO Visian ICL. The procedure is typically painless, using anaesthetic eye drops, and it usually takes less than 20 minutes. Recovery is quick and you can experience immediately improved vision.
