What to Expect

Visian ICL™ “High Definition Visian” Correction Procedure
The implantation procedure for the Visian ICL involves a procedure similar to that of cataract surgery. The main difference is that, unlike cataract surgery, the Visian ICL procedure does not require the removal of the eye's crystalline lens or the removal of sensitive eye tissue.

One to Two Weeks before the Visian ICL Eye Procedure
About one to two weeks prior to the insertion of the Visian ICL, your ophthalmologist will perform a YAG laser iridotomy. During this procedure, your surgeon will use a YAG laser to make one or two small openings near the edge of your iris, which is the colored part of the eye. These openings serve as outlets that will allow the fluid in your eye to circulate around the lens.

Prior to creating the small openings in the eye with the laser, the surgeon will apply numbing drops to make the procedure more comfortable. The ophthalmologist will then prescribe eye drops for you to use during the weeks leading up to the Visian ICL procedure.

 

Improved vision may be evident the same day as the
Visian ICL procedure, and you can expect a quick visual recovery.

 

Day of the Visian ICL Procedure
The entire procedure for the implantation of the Visian ICL will take about 15 to 30 minutes. Most patients say it is relatively painless because of the numbing agents used. Someone will need to drive you home following the procedure. You should not be able to drive immediately after the Visian ICL surgery, so it is important that you arrange for transportation home.
