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.

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

Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE)
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.
How Does it Work?

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.
