ICL — An Evolution in Visual Freedom

Have you been told “no” to LASIK? Because Visian ICLs do not remove corneal tissue, they may be an excellent choice for those who may not have been candidates for vision correction due to naturally thin corneas or very high prescriptions in the past. Visian ICL can produce exceptional vision that is compatible with your natural eye — and has patient satisfaction over 99%.

Located in Cache County, we proudly provide services to communities in and near Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, surrounding states and individuals across the United States. We provide services that include:

ICL Experience

An Evolution in Visual Freedom

The ability to see clearly is one of life’s most precious gifts.

Also known as the Implantable Collamer® Lens, Visian ICL® is the FDA approved new generation in vision correction designed to let you experience doing what you love without the hassle of contacts or glasses. Think of it as an implantable lens that works with your natural eye to correct your vision. Visian ICL® can produce exceptional vision that is compatible with your natural eye — and has a patient satisfaction over 99%. Monson Vision is one of the few centers in Utah that provides this procedure. Dr. Bryan Monson was the first surgeon in the State of Utah to perform astigmatism correcting Toric ICL surgery.

In Harmony With Your Natural Eye

If you’ve been told “no” to Lasik, ICL creates options for a much wider range of prescriptions that can free you from glasses and contacts. Visian ICL® does not remove corneal tissue, but instead works in harmony with your natural eye. ICL is completely removable, leaving the possibility of the development of new vision correction options in the future. ICLs are also created to provide a barrier of UV protection, protecting your eyes from the sun while providing clear vision.
Patients from Cache, Davis & Weber County, UT, or Bannock County & Idaho Falls, ID, who are tired of squinting due to failing vision are encouraged to discover the many benefits of RLE and PRK laser eye surgery by contacting our eye experts today.

Am I a Candidate?

Like fingerprints, no two eyes are the same. At Monson Vision, every procedure is custom-tailored to the uniqueness of your eyes. Correcting your vision begins with an individualized treatment plan made possible by the most advanced eye-mapping technology available. Our in-depth technology imaging suite rivals any in the United States and has been assembled with you in mind. It allows your vision team precision surgical planning for exceptional custom outcomes. You’ll also meet personally with Dr. Monson in a detailed consultation to create together an optimal vision restoration procedure unique to the specific needs of your eyes.

How Does it Work?

ICL Overview

Our Technology

The technology used in ICL procedures is revolutionary. Visian ICL’s® proprietary lenses are made of biocompatible Collamer®. That means the lens material works in harmony with the natural chemistry of your eye and body. By not removing and reshaping corneal tissue, the ICL procedure does not induce dry eye syndrome.

Affordability

We are as proud of our clinic’s financing as we are of our vision results and high-touch service. If LASIK eye surgery is right for you, covering the costs of the procedure shouldn’t jeopardize your ability to get the highest-quality vision correction procedures available anywhere.

EVERY DETAIL MATTERS

Few Centers in the United States take such an in-depth, detailed approach to ocular imaging and assessment you’ll experience on the day of your evaluation.

None of these studies are painful. In fact, they are like cameras, each designed to inform your surgeon and eye care team about every aspect of your eyes, from the rods and cones in the retina, to the optical properties of the cornea.

AN EXPERIENCE FOCUSED ON YOU
You will also undergo a detailed consultation with your surgeon, describing all of the potential risks and benefits for your particular situation, and to determine which procedure is optimal for you.
AS UNIQUE AS YOUR FINGERPRINT

Like a fingerprint, each cornea is unique. Because no two eyes are the same, LASIK may not be the procedure of choice for everyone.

At Monson Vision, we take a highly customized, tailored approach to the unique vision needs of each individual.

Monson Vision is one of the few centers in the country that offer not only SmILE, but the full-spectrum of safe, effective modern alternatives to LASIK including

Advanced Surface Ablation
Visian ICLs
Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE)
SmILE
KAMRA Near Vision Inlays

These procedures allow us to take a safe, custom tailored approach to the features of each individual’s anatomy and vision needs. Safety, anatomic variations, unique vision needs, consideration of development of future technologies all play a role.

Individualized planning, and high customization is one of the hallmarks of the approach Monson Vision, and one of the secrets to our outcomes.

ICL

Few centers have technology this advanced.

The Allegretto family of lasers are the fastest and most precise laser systems for vision correction available in the U.S. Wavelight lasers represent a new generation of refractive technology far more recently designed than other laser platforms. They use technology referred to as High Performance Vision Correction, intended to achieve exceptional visual results under all lighting situations, day and night. The laser employs what is called Perfect Pulse Technology® to safely and accurately control every single laser pulse from start to finish. The flexible performance of Allegretto Wavefront Optimized® LASIK technology enables the correction of each individual’s unique refractive errors while preserving the cornea’s natural shape, effectively reducing side effects such as poor night vision, glare and halos.
That’s the precision of correction to gently shape the surface of the cornea with light.
Each laser vision correction procedure is customized for the refraction and corneal curvature of each patient. The focused light isn’t seen or felt, and imparts no burning sensation.
Monson Vision uses the fastest FDA-approved LASIK platform available in the country.
Each “burst” of the Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q 400Hz Laser lasts mere billionths of a second before the laser shifts to its next position-up to 100 times faster than some lasers. A correction of one diopter requires just two seconds of treatment. Which means shorter procedure times with increased accuracy.
After the WaveLight® Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q Laser procedure, patients are able to experience corrected vision. The laser offers highly customized cornea reshaping for the best possible results from almost any type of laser vision correction.
Clinical data presented to FDA showed that in a large group of patients, quality of night vision after treatment was better than night vision quality before treatment, with best glasses or contact lenses. This is a first in history.
Eyes make constant involuntary movements, even in LASIK surgery. The WaveLight® Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q Laser system includes a closed loop eye tracker that tracks the eye’s location during surgery to make sure that the eye has not moved before delivering the next pulse of laser energy. Eye movements are tracked with each laser pulse.
Perfect Pulse Technology controls every single pulse transmitted by the laser to ensure the accuracy, safety and speed of the procedure. With this monitoring, only every fifth pulse overlaps the previous one, reducing the risks of overheating the cornea. This also adds to the speed, precision and safety offered by the WaveLight® Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q Laser system.
  • More precise than any other femtosecond laser with positional accuracy ~3 microns rather than >6 with other, older femtosecond systems

  • Delivers better results at lower total energy outputs because the laser energy (fluence) is lower and more focused

  • Smart Bed treatment of the VisuMax is extremely sophisticated, helping maintain the perfect, gentle contact pressure optimal for flap creation

  • Curved contact surface employs a curved contact surface when rendering treatment to closely match the curve of the natural cornea

  • Much lower pressure than with all other femto systems and microkeratomes that is usually is accompanied by temporary loss of vision (a few seconds) — creating a better, more comfortable patient experience

  • For the engineers reading this description, the VisuMax delivery system is opto-electronic; all other femto systems use opto-mechanical design. This significant design difference allows greater positional accuracy and puts VisuMax in a class by itself. No other femto laser is capable of the spatial accuracy necessary for ReLeX SMILE.
