If your doctor said you weren’t a good candidate for LASIK or PRK because you had too thin corneas, dry eyes, or your prescription was out of range, then the Visian ICL may be just perfect for you! In addition, the Visian ICL is also available to people who are looking for other alternatives to LASIK. The Visian ICL is an implantable contact/collamer lens. It’s different from LASIK because it doesn’t involve a laser to treat the cornea. The Visian ICL is actually an implant! The surgeon will make a tiny incision and insert a microthin contact lens in front of the eye’s natural lens inside the eye. You will never have to worry again about foggy glasses or losing a contact. Our ICL patients are thrilled with their results.
Visian Toric ICL®
The Eye Institute of Utah is one of the first ophthalmology practices in the United States to offer the Visian Toric ICL, which is a micro-thin collamer lens implant approved for the correction of astigmatism and mild to severe nearsightedness. Patients who were previously not candidates for LASIK, PRK or the non-toric Visian implantable contact lens (ICL) procedures may be able to achieve improved vision with Visian Toric ICL. The revolutionary Visian Toric ICL increases the range of vision correction options available to patients with myopia (nearsightedness) and astigmatism.
Am I a Candidate?
The best way to determine if Visian ICL or Visian Toric ICL can give you the visual freedom you’ve always wanted is to schedule a consultation with an ICL surgeon at The Eye Institute of Utah. You may be a candidate if you:
