Visian ICL - an alternative to LASIK

Created on: Tuesday, November 12, 2013

I have watched a lot of eye surgeries performed by Dr. Jim Schumer in the 14 + years that I have worked at ReVision LASIK and Cataract Surgery Center.  The procedure that stands out to me as the coolest, most immediate life changing for patients is the Visian ICL (Implantable Collamer Lens).  The Visian ICL is designed for both low to highly nearsighted eyes (-3.00D  to -15.00D).  This lens is a great option for patients who are interested in freedom or reducing their dependency of glasses and contacts, with the goal of achieving clear and quality vision.  The motivation for the majority of patients to choose the Visian ICL is because they do not qualify for LASIK or PRK and the Visian ICL is their only option to correct their vision.  I have also encountered patients who safely qualify for LASIK, but are concerned about the laser making a permanent shape change on their cornea, it just freaks some people out!   The Doctors at ReVision prefer this lens for patients who have either thin corneas, highly myopic prescriptions, large pupils, or dry eyes, as the Visian ICL will provide them with the greatest potential for best visual outcome. 

What impresses me the most is how quick the procedure is, less than 20 minutes for both eyes to be completed, and also how well the patients are seeing immediately after surgery.  It is a life changing and emotional moment to watch a Visian ICL patient sit up and read the clock across the surgery room.  It’s the best part of my job to be there to help celebrate and congratulate them for their choice and confidence in us.   I am always available to share what I know about the Visian ICL and I welcome you to make an appointment for a free consultation with the ReVision team to determine if the Visian ICL is a good option for you.   Just call our office at 800-475-2113 and select option 2 to make an appointment.
