Visian ICL in Los Angeles represents the next generation in vision correction procedures. A highly effective alternative to LASIK, glasses and traditional contacts, it is an implantable contact lens that is surgically inserted to provide clear, high-quality vision around the clock.

Benefits of Visian ICL

Versatility

Visian ICL can correct a wider range of prescriptions than LASIK, PRK and AST. Also, unlike these other procedures, ICL can be removed if your prescription changes.

Simplicity

After the lenses have been implanted, Visian ICL is not detectable to you or others. It also requires no maintenance.

Safety

The safety of Visian ICL is proven. It has been implanted in over 100,000 eyes worldwide.

Performance

Over 99 percent of patients in the clinical trial were satisfied with their vision after the Visian ICL procedure. Additionally, many of our patients enjoy excellent night vision and ultra- clear eyesight after having an implantable contact lens inserted.

Quick procedure and recovery

The Visian ICL procedure is quick and comfortable. It can be completed in about 30 minutes and typically delivers an immediate improvement in vision.

No dry eye syndrome

Dry eye syndrome is a side effect of many vision correction procedures. Because Visian ICL is composed of biocompatible material, it won’t induce these symptoms.

What are the lenses made out of?

Visian ICL is made from Collamer, which consists of collagen – a substance that is naturally found in the body. It’s a unique material that delivers a wide range of benefits. It’s biocompatible and created to be in natural harmony with your eye, so your body won’t recognize it as a foreign object. Thanks to the inherent softness and flexibility of the material, the lenses also feel extremely comfortable. And finally, Collamer provides your eyes with UV protection.

What to expect during the procedure

To begin surgery, Dr. Benjamin will apply a topical anesthetic and sedative to minimize discomfort and ensure that you’re at ease throughout the procedure. From there, he will create one or two very small incisions at the base of the cornea and apply a gel-like substance to protect your eye, before delicately placing your implantable contact lens. The entire procedure takes about 30 minutes to complete and you should notice an immediate improvement in your vision. Additionally, you should be able to resume your normal daily routine within a day or two.

Once the procedure is complete, we will provide you with eye drops to use for several days. These drops will reduce the risk of infection and inflammation. You’ll need to have a friend or family member take you home, as you won’t be able to drive. Dr. Benjamin will want to see you within 24 hours to monitor your eye’s internal pressure and ensure that you’re progressing as planned.

Can Visian ICL correct my vision?

Visian ICL is intended to correct moderate to high nearsightedness (-3.0 to -20.0). In general, Dr. Benjamin will require that your vision is stable for at least a year before he will agree to perform this procedure.

Risks

In general, Visian ICL is extremely safe. However, there are risks associated with any refractive procedure, and implantable contact lenses are no different. The most common complications include:

  • Over or under correction. Dr. Benjamin goes to great lengths to ensure that your eyes are corrected appropriately with the right prescription lenses. However, if the wrong prescription strength is determined, the lenses will need to be removed and replaced with an additional procedure.
  • Infection. All surgical procedures are associated with a risk of infection. However, Dr. Benjamin does everything within his power to prevent this from happening by ensuring the use of sterile instruments and administering preventative treatments.
  • Vision problems. With any refractive procedure, there is a risk of vision problems after surgery. These include residual halos and a glare around lights.

Wow, what a huge difference a short 15 minutes makes! Having spent so much of my life helpless without my glasses and inconvenienced by an expensive contacts routine -- suddenly I could see, and with minimal down-time.
