Visian ICL is phakic intra-ocular lens correcting myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism without removing the natural lens of the patient. The material used is collamere. Visian ICL is the result of last research and technology of intra-ocular refractive surgery.

ICL Implants

Advantages :

  • Biocompatibilité : chargé positivement,  l’implant repousse les protéines et diminue les inflammations postopératoires
  • Implant pliable : implantable par une incision de 2,7mm sous anesthésie topique par gouttes
  • Chirurgie courte : mise en place de l’implant dans le segment postérieur derrière l’iris et devant le cristallin en introduisant les anses derrière l’iris
  • La réversibilité : l’implant Visian ICL est facile à retirer en cas d’échange
  • Récupération visuelle rapide : dès le lendemain la vision optimale est obtenue
  • The Visian-ICL is invisible in natural gaz.

Modèles disponibles :

  • Visian-ICL for correcting high  myopia (up to -23 dioptres)
  • Visian-ICL for correcting Hyperopia (up to +23 dioptres)
  • Visian  toric ICL (TICL) pour la correction de la myopie et Astigmatism  
    (up to -6 dioptres)

Précautions préopératoires : 

  • The referral iridotomy with laser YAG is performed to avoid post-operative intra-ocular high pressure.
  • Treatment to prevent intra-ocular press is sometimes required.
  • Exceptionally cases of ICL intolerance are reported with high intra-ocular pressure needing removal of the Visian-ICL.

Complications : 

  • Rare cases of intolerance with permanent hypertonia have been reported requiring free exchange with a smaller implant.
  • Rare cases of exchange of the implant in case of too small or too large size in intraocular position.
  • 1.5% of cases of lens opacification over 10 years of evolution
  • This rare complication seems to be further reduced with the latest Visian ICL V5 models, which have a central hole to facilitate the circulation of the aqueous humor.
  • In case of opacification of the lens, the removal of the ICL implant is possible followed by the extraction of the opacified lens and the insertion of an intraocular implant allowing the correction of myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism.
