icl (Implantable Collamer Lens)procedure


At Netram Eye Centre , we’re proud to offer our patients a complete selection of vision correction procedures that can be customized to their unique needs and provide the best possible outcome. That’s why offer the Visian ICL™, an advanced vision correction option that’s gaining popularity to permanently correct moderate or severe nearsightedness and astigmatism.

The Visian ICL™ (Implantable Collamer Lens) is an advanced soft-material lens composed of 100% biocompatible collagen copolymer. It provides UV protection and permanent vision correction, while giving patients a quality of vision that is sharper, clearer, and more vivid than that what one can achieve with glasses or contacts.

Additionally, unlike LASIK, the Visian ICL™ is removable, if necessary, and the procedure does not permanently alter the shape of your cornea.

Almost a million Visian ICLs have been implanted in patients worldwide. In fact, based upon the Visian Toric ICL clinical trial more than 98% of patients would have the procedure again with 100% were satisfied with the Visian Toric ICL.

advantages of visian icl

If you are between the ages of 21 and 45, and suffer from a moderate to severe degree of nearsightedness with or without astigmatism, then you may be a candidate for this great procedure and the advantages it provides. These include:

  • Immediate vision improvement at all distances – reducing or eliminating the need for glasses or contacts.

  • High Definition Vision – You can enjoy a new level of vision correction that’s sharper, clearer, more vivid, and has greater depth and dimension. Night driving is also improved with no induction of halos or glare.

  • Designed to be Permanent, Yet is Removable – One of the important advantages of the Visian ICL is that while it can permanently correct your vision, the lens can be removed and/or replaced if necessary.

  • Short Recovery Time – The recovery for the Visian ICL is quick and pain-free, and may be as little as one day. Patients typically experience minimal discomfort, and many times go back to work the next day.

  • UV Protection – Long-term exposure to UV radiation can damage your eyes. As an added feature, the Visian ICL advanced lens material contains a UV blocker that actually prevents harmful UVA and UVB rays from entering the eye, possibly preventing the development of UV related eye disorders.
