Where is the Implantable Collamer Lens(ICL) placed in my eye?

When Dr. Nunnery performs your surgery, he will place the Visian ICL between the iris and the crystalline lens, making it undetectable to you or anyone looking at you.

What is the Visian ICL made of?

The Visian ICL is made of a material that is exclusive to STAAR Surgical and not found in other lenses. It's made of Collamer, a technologically advanced lens material that is biocompatible and provides UV protection.

Is the Visian ICL New?

No. There have been more than 1,000,000 lenses implanted worldwide since its introduction.

Does the Implantable contact lens dry out or get dirty?

Remember, this is an implanted collamer lens, not contact lens, so it is inside your eye, not in contact with the outside of your eye. Hence, it is not subject to dirt and dryness. However, we always recommend that our patients continue annual eye exams to ensure the lens is still safe and effective.

Is Implantable Collamer Lens surgery covered by Insurance?

Like LASIK and PRK, ICL is considered a cosmetic procedure and it is not covered by insurance. Here at Providence Eye, we are proud to offer many options to make your ICL surgery affordable.
