Visian ICL developed as a procedure for correcting myopia. FDA approved the procedure. It has been performed on people with myopia who are not good candidates for Lasik. Unlike the Lasik procedure, Visian ICL does not require reshaping of the eye. Instead, the Visian ICL (Implantable Collamer Lens) implants behind the iris. This makes recovery fast and corrects the vision problem. Here are three celebrities who have been happy with their Visian ICL:
Professional cyclist Tom Danielson
For Tom Danielson, the answer to his nearsightedness problem became Visian ICL. After dealing with eyeglasses, contact lenses, and determined not a good candidate for Lasik surgery, Visian ICL gave him the chance to make it easier to compete at the same level as other professional cyclists. When he first started competing, Tom used prescription eyeglasses but wearing it while racing was inconvenient. The glasses would get sweaty and muddy which made his vision worse. Then he used contact lenses. Contact lens were uncomfortable especially when dirt and wind hit his eyes during the race. Danielson was not a candidate for LASIK as determined by a well-qualified doctor. With Visian ICL, in just 24 hours Tom had his vision improved without the hassle of wearing eyeglasses and contact lenses.
Actress A.J. Cooke
A.J Cooke had been wearing eyeglasses since he was in elementary school. Then she switched to contact lenses when she got a little bit older. Wearing eyeglasses as a kid, she experienced a lot of teasing. Then when she became a dancer and an actress, the inconvenience of wearing both eyeglasses and contact lenses made her decide to look for another solution. She heard about Lasik but unfortunately she was not a good candidate for the procedure, because she had large pupils. With Visian ICL, AJ finally had improved vision. It even improved her night vision which, before the surgery, was extremely poor.
Comedian Christopher Reid
Comedian Christopher Reid had extremely poor vision that he and his doctors had to consider several options. Eye glasses and wearing contact lens only helped so much so the doctors and he discussed about Lasik surgery. Lasik had been successful for many people and with good results as documented by eye institutes. But for Christopher, he liked the Visian approach a bit better. His main concern was that Lasik is irreversible since it shapes the cornea, but it can become corrected with additional surgeries. Having bad eyesight, he was concerned that if something went wrong, given his extremely poor eyesight, he may not have much room for error before his eyesight became debilitating. He decided to opt for Visian ICL. With Visian ICL, since the cornea is not cut or reshaped, one can easily have the implant removed, and the eye would simply be back to its previous condition. After the procedure, Christopher immediately noticed the difference and appreciated the small things, like perception in terms of depth, driving at night, and reading labels, and signs from across the room.
