isfied with their implant. The Visian ICL has a track record of stable, consistently excellent clinical outcomes.

About the VISIAN ICL

Made of a highly biocompatible Collamer(R) material containing a small amount of collagen, the Visian ICL's unique lens design allows for a minimally invasive procedure and an aesthetically pleasing outcome, because the lens is placed behind the iris. Unlike laser vision procedures the Visian ICL corrects vision without permanently altering the structure of the eye and can be removed if needed.

Doctors familiar with the technology have noted the ICL's stability, the safety of the procedure, superior clinical outcomes and high patient satisfaction rate. The Visian ICL is a refractive phakic implant intended for placement in the posterior chamber of the eye. The approved models are indicated for the correction of myopia in adults with myopia ranging from -3.0 to less than or equal to -15.0 diopters, with astigmatism less than or equal to 2.5 diopters at the spectacle plane, and the reduction of myopia in adults with myopia ranging from greater than -15.0 to -20.0 diopters with astigmatism less than or equal to 2.5 diopters at the spectacle plane, in patients 21 to 45 years of age with anterior chamber depth (ACD) 3.00 mm or greater, and a stable refractive history within 0.5 diopters for one year prior to implantation.
