STAAR® Surgical Company began feasibility studies for treating vision disorders with an implantable contact lens (ICL) in 1993. By 1997, the company received approval to supply its ICL vision correction device to European markets. In 2005, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the Visian ICL (Implantable Collamer Lens) for the reduction and treatment of nearsightedness (myopia). Most recently the FDA approved the Visian Toric ICL for the correction of both nearsightedness and astigmatism in one simple procedure.

How Can Visian ICL Help Me?

The Visian ICL is sometimes referred to as an implantable contact lens, because it is added to the eye to correct common vision problems, like myopia and astigmatism. Rather than replacing the natural lens of the eye like is typically done in cataract removal surgery, Visian ICL works by implanting the contact lens between your iris and the natural lens. Patients choose Visian ICL because it is a technologically advanced procedure for vision correction and it offers an alternative to LASIK, a permanent laser vision correction procedure. However, the Visian ICL is designed to stay in the eye indefinitely, unless there has been over- or undercorrection or complications develops, or if the patient’s vision changes with time. If this is the case for you, the Visian ICL can be removed or exchanged by your eye surgeon.

Some of the advantage of Visian ICL include:

  • Sharper, clearer vision
  • 99% patient satisfaction
  • Excellent night vision
  • Quick results
  • Great for those with thin corneas
  • Does not induce dry eye syndrome
  • A removable option
  • UV protection
  • Treats moderate to high myopia (nearsightedness)
  • Treats astigmatism

What Is the Visian ICL Implant Made of?

Collamer is a type of collagen material designed to work in harmony with your eyes. Because the lens is foldable, your eye surgeon will only need to make a small incision during surgery compared to other available lenses. This feature allows physicians to implant the lens using a smaller incision. The small incision procedure is a technique that is familiar to eye surgeons. The Visian ICL requires a 2.8- to 3.0-millimeter incision as opposed to the 6.0mm incision required by other FDA-approved phakic IOLs. This smaller incision is seen as less invasive and will not induce astigmatism in the cornea.
