Is there a BIG IMBALANCE between the vision in each eye?
Would you like to have better vision without your contacts and glasses?
Would you like even BETTER VISION with your contacts and glasses?
If you answered YES, then Visian ICL for your Keratoconus may be the next step to make life better and easier for you.
THE PROBLEM: After having your Keratoconus treated or if you already had a cornea transplant, there may still be HIGH DEGREES OF NEARSIGHTEDNESS. This can cause very blurry vision when you take off your contacts or glasses. When you have a lot of nearsightedness in one OR both eyes, it can also cause problems with glasses and contact lenses and hold back your best vision.
Many people who are candidates for the Visian ICL love their improved vision. It can amplify the life changing experience from earlier Keratoconus treatments.
The Visian ICL is an insertable lens that treats high amounts of nearsightedness – this can DRAMATICALLY IMPROVE YOUR VISION. If you had Intacs earlier, then you already have an idea what it is like to have the Visian ICL inserted – typically easier than getting your teeth cleaned at the dentist! (The Intacs aren’t removed; they stay in place since they are helping your Keratoconus). The Visian ICL is elegantly placed by Dr. Brian just behind your iris.
In many patients suffering from a high prescription and Keratoconus, the Visian ICL can help reduce the need for contacts and glasses and provide more functional vision day to day.. In other people, the Visian ICL can IMPROVE the vision with contacts and glasses. It just depends on your individual Keratoconus and Dr. Brian can explain what you can expect based on your Keratoconus.

Quality of Vision
The Visian ICL offers HIGH QUALITY OF VISION compared to glasses for many patients with Keratoconus. Two unique factors help explain this superior optical performance. First, the Visian ICL is made of Collamer – a soft, flexible lens material that contains a small amount of collagen – making the lens extremely biocompatible for a lifetime of clear vision. Second, the lens is placed inside of the eye, where it continues to focus light more efficiently than glasses – NO maintenance is required.
The Visian ICL is inserted into the eye through a small, micro incision. The lens unfolds in the eye and is positioned between the iris and the natural lens and you won’t feel it just like you don’t feel a dental filling for a cavity. The procedure takes approximately 10 minutes and is typically painless with a 1 day recovery.
Advanced Lens Material
Collamer lens material transmits light and reduces reflections that can interfere with vision to enhance vision. Collamer is the only lens material made with collagen – a top choice for a lens that designed to remain inside your body. We have never seen any rejection or other type of reaction the Visian ICL from the body.
If necessary, it can be removed from the eye.
Invisible and Undetectable
You won’t be able to see the Visian ICL in your eye because it’s crystal clear and typically neither will anybody else.
Exactly where is Visian ICL placed in the eye?
Visian ICL is placed in the “posterior chamber,” hidden behind the iris and in front of the eye’s natural lens.
What is the track record of Visian ICL?
Extensive research and development preceded the introduction of Visian ICL. It is now being used by more than 50,000 patients over 25 years world-wide.
What if your vision changes?
Visian ICL offers treatment flexibility. If your vision changes dramatically, the lens can be removed and replaced, or another procedure can be performed at any time. With Visian ICL, you can wear glasses or contact lenses if necessary.
What is involved in the Visian ICL procedure?
The actual Visian ICL procedure typically takes approximately 10 minutes and Dr. Brian invented the Visian ICL IN OFFICE procedure to make you comfortable. This avoids you going to an impersonal, inefficient, and cold surgery center.. Normally, very little discomfort is associated with this procedure. A light topical or local anesthetic is administered and a mild sedative may be given. Eye drops or oral medication may be prescribed. You will come back the next day for a follow-up visit.
Dr. Brian INVENTED:
1) Treating both eyes at the same time vs return weeks later for second eye treatment,
2) Visian ICL being performed in a comfortable office environment vs. cold, impersonal surgery center,
3) Entire Visian ICL being done same day vs other surgeons who must perform it as a 2- PART PROCEDURE with a painful laser to make a hole in the iris 1 week before the Visian ICL procedure is done (that means TWO separate procedures to have the Visian ICL).
Other surgeons may “dabble” with the Visian ICL for Keratoconus. No, not Dr. Brian. He has committed most of his illustrious 20-year career to help good people like you with Keratoconus. By now, you already know he is a “World Keratoconus Authority” because of his VAST experience, ability to innovate when other doctors don’t care about helping people with Keratoconus, AND his ability to CUSTOMIZE treatments to optimize vision and YOUR LIFE. The most important part that you just read is this: HE CARES ABOUT HELPING PEOPLE LIKE YOU WITH KERATOCONUS.
Dr. Brian was selected by Starr Surgical, a public company that makes the Visian ICL, to develop an exclusive 10-part webinar series to train other ophthalmologists to perform his most advanced Visian ICL procedure. Even afterwards, few doctors were able to incorporate all of Dr. Brian’s training pearls.
It requires special expertise and tremendous experience to do Visian ICL well in patients who have had Keratoconus treatments such as Intacs and CK. From surgical planning to proper lens selection to the surgical technique to appropriate expectation setting, you can be confident you are in expert hands. Dr. Brian has a MASSIVE DEGREE OF EXPERIENCE performing Visian ICL in people who had Keratoconus treatments. He is a TRUSTED AUTHORITY by people who routinely fly in from all over United States and the world for his life-changing Visian ICL treatment for their Keratoconus.
No. Patients who get dry eyes from traditional contact lenses may be ideally suited for Visian ICL since this lens cannot be felt. Visian ICL can avoid problems experienced with traditional contact lenses. It is designed to remain in place inside your eye, without maintenance. If you live outside of the Los Angeles area, that’s not a problem. A routine, annual visit with your eye doctor is recommended to make sure everything is fine. If live in Los Angeles, then Dr. Brian can check you annually.
How long does Visian ICL stay in my eye?
The Visian ICL is intended to remain in place in the eye without maintenance.
Can Visian ICL be seen by the naked eye?
No. The lens is positioned behind the iris where it is invisible to both you and others. You enjoy a cosmetic appearance that is natural. Only an eye doctor can see the Visian ICL.
Can Visian ICL be felt once it is in place?
It’s like having a dental filling for a cavity. Technically you have in implant in your tooth, but you don’t feel it.
Will Glasses or Contact Lenses Be Needed Afterwards?
The answer depends on the degree of your Keratoconus and prescription strength. After meeting with Dr. Brian or having a record review by him, you will be advised on realistic expectations after Visian ICL. The expectations range from better vision from likely not needing any correction lenses or perhaps to use weaker powered glasses or contact lenses and have better in them. Dr. Brian can advise you on that.
