If you have myopia and are looking for ways to have it corrected, you probably have already heard about Visian ICL. By now, you are already wondering if it is the right treatment for you. Well, the good thing about advances in vision correction technology is that they are very effective improving the vision of persons who have myopia. Take Lasik surgery for example, people who have had it report positive results and satisfaction.
Visian ICL developed as one of the alternative eye correction treatments for myopia that offer the same positive results as Lasik. In fact, it can be the last resort for those who have myopia, but are not good candidates for Lasik. So, here are some facts about Visian ICL that can help you decide if it is the right vision correction procedure for you:
1.Results and Satisfaction
This is one of the most important things to discuss, and it’s understandable since many are not yet familiar with this procedure, unlike Lasik which has become the standard treatment for people with certain vision problems. The thing that you need to know about Vision ICL becomes that the results and satisfaction, just like Lasik, studies have shown 99% patient satisfaction. Not surprising since the medical technology is not something new. In fact, eye surgeons have been performing it for more than 10 years and many people have already benefited from the procedure.
Visian ICL developed uniquely when it comes to how safe the procedure is, and the material that is implanted in the eye. First, when it comes to the procedure, it is different from Lasik because with VIsian ICL corneal tissue is not removed or reshaped. In fact, the Visian becomes simply placed in the eye and can be removed if, for any reason, you want to have it removed. Second, Visian ICL contains purified collagen. As we all know collagen lists as the second most common substance of the body. This makes Visian highly compatible with the human eye, thereby reducing the risk of complications. This procedure is also FDA approved. It is important however to find an eye surgeon that has had extensive experience with this procedure.
Recovery happens fast and easy with this procedure primarily because the eye’s cornea is not reshaped. Since the eye is not cut or reshaped, the procedure does not take long. Sometimes, it can only take as long as 15 minutes. Second, the material of the Visian becomes accepted by the eye, again because of the collagen substance, so recovery happens faster. Usually, it takes only a few days for the person to return to normal life after the surgery.
