The Visian Candidate
The Visian ICL is a state-of-the-art solution that’s ideal for anyone with the need or desire for quality vision correction. Produced by STAAR® Surgical Company, the Visian ICL has numerous advantages including its correction of the widest range of myopia, or “nearsightedness.”

After a comprehensive eye examination, the ophthalmologist will discuss various refractive surgery options including the implantation of a lens like the Visian ICL, and/or laser refractive surgery. Based on your correction needs, eye health, medical history, and desired outcome for refractive surgery, your eye surgeon will determine if you are a good candidate for the Visian ICL.

 
 Good candidates for the Visian ICL include patients who:
Are between the ages of 21 and 45.
Are nearsighted with or without astigmatism* or farsighted*, including those with mild, moderate, and severe myopia (as low as -3D to as high as -20D prescription) with minor or no occurrence of astigmatism. The Visian Toric ICL™, capable of correcting myopia with astigmatism, is currently under review with the U.S. FDA. The Visian TICL™ is currently available only outside of the United States.
 
Have sufficient anterior chamber depth and acceptable endothelial cell density (this will be determined by an ophthalmologist after a comprehensive eye exam).
Have not had a change in their eyeglass prescription of more than 0.5D in a year.
Are not currently pregnant.
 
Have no other contraindications including no known allergies to medications used during refractive surgery.
Have dry eyes, severe myopia, or a thin cornea (non-LASIK candidate).
