Visian ICL implant

The ICL is a low risk, long term solution for patients with severe short-sightedness (myopia) or long sightedness (hyperopia) who may not be suitable for laser vision correction. It is a good option for many patients, particularly those under 45 years of age.

What are ICL implants?

The Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) is an advanced, thin, artificial lens that functions similar to a contact lens. It’s implanted into the eye which sits on top of your own natural lens and behind the iris (the coloured part of the eye). The lens cannot be felt while in the eye and can be removed in the future, if required. Made from a very stable and biocompatible material called collamer which contains a small amount of purified collagen, the lens also has a UV light filter.
