VISIAN Offers Many Advantages over LASIK Surgery

Quality of Vision

The Visian ICL offers unparalleled quality of vision, providing excellent contrast. Two unique factors help explain this superior optical performance. First, the Visian ICL is made of Collamer — a soft, flexible lens material that contains a small amount of collagen– making the lens extremely biocompatible for a lifetime of clear vision. Second, the lens is placed inside of the eye, where it continues to focus light accurately without any maintenance required.


The Visian ICL is inserted into the eye by an ophthalmologist through a small, micro incision. The lens unfolds in the eye and is positioned between the iris and the natural lens where it stays indefintely. The procedure takes approximately 15 minutes and is performed on an outpatient basis.

Advanced lens material

The Visian ICL is made of Collamer, an advanced lens material that has unique properties. Collamer transmits light and reduces reflections that can interfere with vision, so you see clearly. Made of a copolymer and collagen, Collamer is also highly biocompatible. It allows the Visian ICL to rest quietly in position while accurately correcting vision. Collamer is the only lens material made with collagen—the best choice for a lens that is going to remain inside your body for a lifetime.


The Visian ICL does not alter any structures within the eye or on the cornea. If necessary, it can be removed from the eye by a simple surgical procedure.

Invisible and undetectable

You won’t be able to see the Visian ICL in your eye, and neither will anybody else. Exceptional quality of vision will be the only reminder that you have had 21st century vision correction.

Excellent for a wide range of vision correction needs Extreme refractive error
Anyone seeking clear vision may be a candidate for the Visian ICL, including patients with extreme or special vision correction needs.
Thin corneas
The cornea is the curved surface on the front of the eye. The Visian ICL does not have any effect on the cornea and may be appropriate if you have thin corneas.
Dry eyes
Visian ICL does not cause or contribute to dry eyes.

Is the Visian ICL right for you?

Schedule a consultation with the counselors at Turner Eye Institute and ask about the unique advantages of the Visian ICL. More than 50,000 patients now have this lens, and it may be just right for you.
