For years, the only method of permanent vision correction that didn’t involve glasses or contact lenses was corrective laser eye surgery. With the advent of the Vision ICL, however, that’s all changed. Now, you can enjoy “High Definition Vision” – vision correction that’s sharper, clearer, more vivid, and has greater depth and dimension in a simple, 15-minute outpatient procedure.
How do I know if I’m a suitable Vision ICL candidate?
Candidates for the Vision ICL are between 21 and 45 years of age, suffer from myopia (nearsightedness), and want to experience superior vision correction. The ideal Vision ICL candidate has not undergone any ophthalmic surgery and does not have a history of eye disease such as iritis, glaucoma, or diabetic retinopathy.
Where is the Vision ICL placed?
A qualified ophthalmologist will insert the Vision ICL through a small micro-opening, placing it inside the eye just behind the iris in front of the eye’s natural lens. The Vision ICL is designed to stay in position with no special care.
Will I be able to feel the Vision ICL once it’s in place?
The Vision ICL is designed to be completely unobtrusive after it is put in place. It stays in position by itself and does not interact with any of the eye’s structures. After the simple 15-minute outpatient procedure, patients experience an immediate improvement in vision quality and are “Wowed” by the results. In fact, the quality of vision achieved is many times better than any previous vision correction solution.
Does it hurt?
No, most patients state that they are very comfortable throughout the procedure. Your ophthalmologist will use topical anesthetic drops prior to the procedure and may choose to administer a light sedative as well. After the simple 15-minute outpatient procedure, patients experience an immediate improvement in vision quality and are “Wowed” by the results. In fact, the quality of vision achieved is many times better than any previous vision correction solution. The Vision ICL has already improved the lives of more than 40,000 people, and it’s helping more every day!
