Individuals who suffer from moderate to extreme nearsightedness (myopia) now have a solution for their poor vision. The Visian ICL™ is a revolutionary refractive lens that can correct vision up to -20 diopters of nearsightedness that has recently received FDA approval. In addition to alleviating restrictively thick glasses, the Visian ICL also provides an opportunity to those individuals who are not candidates for LASIK eye surgery. Some people cannot have LASIK for reasons ranging from high prescriptions, history of dry eye, large pupils to thin corneas. With the development of Visian ICL these individuals may have the opportunity to experience less dependency on prescription eye wear much like what LASIK has brought to millions. Unlike the LASIK procedure, the Visian ICL lens can actually be removed if the patient experiences significant changes in vision.
Depending on your particular visual needs, the Visian ICL could provide you with a great option for clear vision.
