Visian Toric is an implantable contact lens for people who are not eligible for LASIK vision surgery and also have astigmatism. It’s an artificial lens that is permanently placed inside the eye in front of the natural lens to correct nearsightedness and blurred vision from myopia and astigmatism.
The Visian® Toric ICL may improve distance vision and correct or reduce myopia with astigmatism.
In a clinical study of 210 patient’s eyes implanted with the Visian® Toric ICL, 97.4% achieved within 1.0 D from target refraction and 97.9% of patients had less than or equal to (10) degrees of lens rotation after one year of an implant.
Why Visian Toric Works
The Visian® Toric ICL bends the light rays that go into your eye, allowing them to focus on the retina, which allows users of the implant to have clear vision at short and long distances.
The Visian Toric ICL is surgically implanted by one of our professional ophthalmologists (eye surgeons) and after a brief recovery period can result in better, clearer eyesight for the patient.
Who Is Eligible for Visian Toric ICL?
The Visian® Toric ICL is primarily designed to be used in patients between the ages of 21 and 45. You may not be eligible if you have cataracts or have required cataract surgery. You may be eligible if you fit any of the following:
- Required correction of myopic astigmatism with less than or equal to -3.0D to less than -15.0D with cylinder of 1.0D to 4.0D at the spectacle plane
- Required reduction of myopic astigmatism ranging from greater than -15.0D to -20.0D with cylinder 1.0D to 4.0D at the spectacle plane
- with an anterior chamber depth of 3.00 mm or greater, and a stable refractive history within 0.5D for 1 year prior to implantation.
