The Visian ICL is an implantable contact lens that is an alternative to LASIK or PRK laser surgery. The lens is FDA approved with an extensive safety history for nearsightedness, and is expected to be approved for astigmatism very soon. The lens sits behind the iris, and in front of your native lens.
The procedure does not alter corneal structure like a laser procedure, and is extremely quick and causes very little discomfort. Usually, patients notice immediate visual improvement and proceed to the second eye quickly! Dr. Rhodes can discuss with you if your eyes are appropriate for Visian ICLs.Watch our video about the IMPLANTABLE CONTACT LENS
