Implantable Contact Lenses (ICL-also known as Visian lenses) may be appropriate for people who have very large corrective errors or are otherwise not good laser vision correction candidates. During a brief, painless procedure, a prescription lens resembling a soft contact lens is inserted in the natural space between the iris (the colored part of the eye) and the eye's natural lens.
The ICL is considered an alternative to such procedures as LASIK, PRK or Refractive Lens Exchange. The best candidates for the ICL are between the ages of 21 and 60, with moderate to severe nearsightedness. The ICL is a small, injectable lens inserted through a tiny, 3mm incision that does not usually require sutures. The procedure is performed on one eye at a time, takes about five minutes and is pain free.
