About Intraocular Lenses
This exciting new technology offers options for those seeking to reduce dependence on glasses and contact lenses. The Visian ICL provides an outstanding quality of vision for those who are nearsighted or those with thin corneas that prevent laser vision correction. During the initial consultation at Wilmarth Eye and Laser Center in Roseville, CA, board-certified ophthalmologist Dr. Wilmarth will explain the different techniques for vision correction in great detail before recommending the ideal option for you.
Visian ICL Reviews
"I just recently had the ICL lens inserted into both of my eyes. I couldn't be happier. I have been in glasses/contacts since 6th grade (now in my 40's) and my vision was -10 and -11. Dr. Wilmarth was so knowledgable, professional and kind. He talked to me through the whole procedure and let me know what he was doing which calmed my nerves. His staff was incredible and Colleen was so quick to return my calls and answer my questions. I highly recommend Dr. Wilmarth and this is one of the best decisions I have made."- J.H. / Yelp / Sep 13, 2018
"I am absolutely shocked that this place doesn't have a gazillion reviews! I am a second-generation patient of Dr. Wilmarth's. My parents had lasik done here over 10 years ago, and when it came time for me to finally see clearly, there was no other option. (10 years later, they're ready for a touch up, and they're going to drive 7 hours for Dr. Wilmarth to do it - they wouldn't go anywhere else!) Dr. Wilmarth is AMAZING. I had Visian ICL done on my -11 eyes, and I can now see 20/15. It's a modern day miracle. My life is changed, and if you have eyes like mine used to be, you'll know that's not an exaggeration. He and Lynn made me feel completely comfortable with the procedure. They explained everything to me, and were professional and friendly every step of the way. When it comes to your eyes, you can't take any risks. This office is the best, and I wouldn't have trusted anyone else. I'm glad I did, and I'd recommend it to anyone."- H.G. / Yelp / Jun 09, 2014
"My wife had 20/650 vision in one eye, and 20/750 in the other. We went in for evaluation, and Dr. Wilmarth recommended we start with an ICL procedure, and then "fine-tune" that with Lasik if necessary. His entire staff demonstrated the highest levels of professionalism and kindness. Colette in particular was a joy to work with. Throughout the entire process the communication was clear, thorough, kind, and timely. My wife now has 20/20 vision and she couldn't be happier. If you are considering an eye procedure, this is the place to get it done. Everything from the professionalism of the staff, to the human kindness, to the results were 5/5 star. Bravo, team, bravo!"- D.C. / Yelp / Mar 08, 2019
What to Expect
The Visian ICL is a soft, thin lens that is gently implanted behind the iris and in front of the human lens. It is similar in appearance and feel to a soft contact lens but remains inside the eye. Implantation is a reversible procedure and the lens may be removed for any reason in the future without harm to the eye. The implantation takes about 15 minutes under light sedation. There is very little to no discomfort associate with this procedure. Most patients are back to normal activities the next day.
Our goal is 20/20 vision and most achieve it within a day or two of surgery. Occasionally patients with unusually high nearsightedness or astigmatism need laser vision correction to finish the treatment and create clear vision. Visian ICL patients are some of the happiest patients in Dr. Wilmarth's practice.
Plan Your Procedure
The Visian ICL creates a superior visual quality to LASIK and PRK for those people with highly myopic glasses and contact lens. A small group of patients are unable to undergo laser vision correction because the cornea is too thin. The Vision ICL is a perfect solution. In general Dr. Wilmarth prefers Visian ICL to laser vision correction in those with corrections above -8.00. Vision consultations are complementary and give Dr. Wilmarth the information needed to help you make the best choice for clear vision.
