Visian ICL

 

Implantable Collamer Lens

Visian ICL Lens

The Visian ICL (Implantable Collamer Lens) resembles a very small contact lens, which is inserted under topical anesthesia through a tiny incision and then placed between the iris and the natural lens of the eye. It is not seen by observers and is not felt in the eye. While LASIK focuses on reshaping the cornea (eye surface), the Visian ICL works inside the eye along with the natural lens to focus light clearly on the retina. The surgery takes only minutes to complete, and no tissue is removed from the cornea, as it is with LASIK or PRK. This allows for a broader range of nearsighted correction (-3 to -16 diopters) than can be accomplished with the excimer laser alone, and it may in many cases produce higher quality visual results. The highest correction to date that Dr. Herschel has done was with a patient with -23 diopters and astigmatism. This was achieved with a combination of Visian ICL and LASIK.

The Visian ICL has other benefits, too. It does not cause or worsen dry eye, as other procedures may potentially do. The Visian ICL is also removable. As we age, it is normal to develop cataracts. When it is time for cataract surgery, Dr. Herschel can easily remove the Visian ICL and proceed with cataract surgery and the implantation of intraocular lenses.

Meet Matt, and Omar, who chose the Visian ICL as their preferred vision correction option, and learn more about the Visian ICL.

Why Choose Visian ICL

Visian ICL’s biocompatible Collamer maintains natural eye chemistry and won’t induce dry eye syndrome.

Our procedure can be described as additive vision correction. Unlike other procedures, the Visian ICL procedure does not remove corneal tissue, but works in harmony with your natural eye. The lens gently unfolds in your eye, rests behind your iris, and is biocompatible with your body chemistry.

The Visian ICL Collamer material enables our insertion method to be minimally invasive. With only a 3.5 mm insert, we can optimize the procedure and recovery time dramatically. Additionally, the procedure is also painless because of the numbing medication. Patients can usually expect a 20-30 minute procedure or less and most people are able to resume daily activities in just a few short days with clearer vision.

By gently inserting our ICL into the eye we’re able to create a barrier of UV protection. The Collamer material that makes up our ICLs has unique properties that provide UV protection.

Visian ICL gives a corrective procedure option to those with moderate to severe myopic vision problems. Many patients don’t meet the requirements for Lasik candidacy because their prescription is too high or they have thin corneas. ICLs provide them a safe and effective treatment.Visian ICL Corrects Up to -20

How does Visian™ ICL Give Super Clear Vision?

The Visian ICL offers vision correction that’s sharper, clearer, more vivid, and has greater depth and dimension than other procedures. The main advantage of the Visian ICL over traditional corrective laser eye surgery is that patients may experience significant improvement in quality of vision after the lens is implanted 1. When compared to the results of corneal refractive surgery, the Visian ICL may produce superior vision quality as evidenced by fewer higher order aberrations . Patients experience a nearly immediate visual recovery and “Wow!” results.

Who Is A Candidate For The Visian ICL?

  • Young Adults with moderate to high myopia (-3 to -16 diopters)
  • Young Adults with myopia in excess of -16 diopters, when done in combination with LASIK
  • Young Adults who are not good candidates for LASIK or PRK
  • Young Adults with severe dry eye
  • Select Keratoconus patients

Beautiful office. Amazing and caring staff. Getting my surgery done Saturday and the Doctor and the staff helped choose the right option for me and I didn't feel pushed to commit. One of the only few who commits the patient to a dry eye treatment as per my research. Post-surgery I hope to keep my 5 star rating because I have nothing bad to say!

I recently did my LASIK procedure about 1 week ago and was completely blown away from beginning to end with the SERVICE received from the entire staff at Herschel LASIK. The office is beautifully decorated and the staff was always professional, personable, knowledgeable and friendly. I particularly enjoyed the way that everything was explained clearly before, during and after my procedure and questions were always encouraged and answered. My experience was the best encounter to date with a physician. Excellent doctor + excellent support staff +excellent service = excellent experience and a happy customer. Thank you so much Dr. Herschel, Doris and Francesca.

Great service, sometimes a bit of a wait, but I take a full lobby as a sign of a well recommended doctor. Staff is friendly & quick to answerphones & squeeze me in when I got an eye problem. Would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting to get LASIK. Doctor even personally called to check on me the night after my procedure.

I got my LASIK procedure done here. I was apprehensive, mostly because anything to do with my eyes kind of freaked me out.
I went under a free consultation. The nurses/assistants were very nice and they answered any questions I had. Then I met Dr. Herschel and he was very nice and understanding. He explained all that would happen, how everything works, how long recovery will be, everything.
So, I agreed and start the process. I love the fact you always meet with Dr. Herschel at every appointment.
I now have 20/20 vision.
I'd highly recommend going to him for all of your vision needs.

Great surgeon and great staff. Do your research, Dr. Herschel is more than just a LASIK surgeon. He is certified and specializes in all areas of eye surgery so have peace of mind that you are getting one of the best. They use current technology and machines. More so, if your eyes aren’t ready for surgery he has no problem delaying 1-2 weeks until they are 100% good-to-go. He will not risk your health for the sake of money.
