About ICL

As an eye clinic devoted to helping our patients live their best life, we pride ourselves in the ability to provide a complete selection of vision correction procedures that can be customized to their unique eyes. For patients who are not a candidate for LASIK and are seeking freedom from contacts and glasses, Vold Vision offers Visian ICL also known as the Implantable Collamer® Lens. This implantable lens works with your natural eye to correct the most common visual problem, myopia or nearsightedness, with or without astigmatism. Many patients who have been told NO to LASIK or laser vision correction have enjoyed the freedom of clear, HD vision with ICL! This lens-based solution has been available in the U.S. for almost 15 years and more than 1 Million procedures have been performed worldwide. Our additive procedure creates options for a much wider range of prescriptions, from low to extremely high, while giving patients a quality of vision that is sharper, clearer, and more vivid than that what one can achieve with glasses or contacts.

It’s simple! Since the lens sits in, not on your eyes, there is no daily maintenance as with traditional contact lenses, and no concern of problems or restrictions from hobbies you love like swimming.

“It changes your whole life – really! I’m all about convenience, and this makes your life more convenient. The best thing for me is knowing that when I go abroad for missions trips I don’t have to worry about the need for clean water or the restrictions that glasses and contacts bring. I can just wake up and GO!”

Why ICL?

    Quick Procedure & Recovery

  • The Visian ICL Collamer material enables our insertion method to be minimally invasive. With only a 3.5 mm insert, we can optimize the procedure and recovery time dramatically. Additionally, the procedure is also painless because of the numbing medication. Patients can usually expect a 15 procedure or less and most people are able to resume daily activities within 24 hours with clearer vision

  • ICL doesn’t cause dry eye syndrome.

  • Vision ICL’s biocompatible Collamer maintains natural eye chemistry and won’t induce dry eye syndrome. (Ref. 2)

  • Protection from UV Rays

  • By gently inserting our ICL into the eye we’re able to create a barrier of UV protection. The Collamer material that makes up our ICLs has unique properties that provide UV protection.

  • Superb Results!

  • 99% satisfaction rate from ICL patients (Ref 1)

  • Excellent Night Vision

  • Many patients are excited that they can return to driving at night glasses free! (Ref 4)

  • Great for Thin Corneas

  • Many patients who have been told NO to LASIK or laser vision correction have enjoyed the freedom of clear, HD vision with ICL!

  • Great for High Nearsightedness

  • Vision ICL is able to correct and reduce nearsightedness (myopia) of up to -20D.

  • Addictive, Removable Procedure

  • Our procedure can be described as additive vision correction. Unlike other procedures, the Visian ICL procedure does not remove corneal tissue, but works in harmony with your natural eye. The lens gently unfolds in your eye, rests behind your iris, and is biocompatible with your body chemistry.
