If you’ve been told that you’re not a candidate for LASIK… or if you’ve been waiting for a more advanced, safe, and effective technology that may eliminate your need for glasses or contacts–the Visian ICL, otherwise known as the implantable contact lens, could be right for you. Dr. John Papale is one of the most experienced ophthalmologists in New England performing this procedure.
The Visian ICL is an Implantable Collamer Lens that works with the eye to correct vision. Unlike traditional contact lenses that go on the surface of the eye, the Visian ICL is positioned inside the eye between the iris (the colored part of the eye) and the natural lens where it stays indefinitely.
If your vision changes dramatically, however, it can be removed from the eye. There have been over 375,000 patient eyes treated worldwide with the Visian ICL.
