Visian ICL eye surgery is a corrective procedure that can effectively cure myopia (nearsightedness). During this procedure, the eye surgeon implants a Collamer lens directly behind the iris that will correct vision problems with objects at close range.
Visian ICL is about two times the cost of LASIK vision correction surgery, but it may be the only option for people who don’t qualify for LASIK or other procedures. In addition, the results of Visian ICL often far surpass those of LASIK. Visian ICL not only increases visual acuity (20/20 vision or better), but it also provides patients with high-definition (HD) eyesight in which objects appear sharper and more in focus.
The cost of Visian ICL surgery depends on several factors, including where you live, your specific surgical needs and your current health insurance coverage (if any). On average, you can expect your out-of-pocket expenses for Visian ICL surgery to range from $3,000 to $5,500 per eye (compared with $2,250 to $2,750 per eye for LASIK surgery). However, this estimate includes all aspects of the surgery process, including the cost of your initial exam, your follow up visit, the anesthesiologist and medical supplies you may need.
Covering the cost of Visian ICL eye surgery can be daunting to think about but, with creative financing options, it might be more affordable than you think! As a rule, most health insurance companies won’t cover any of the costs because they consider Visian ICL to be an elective procedure.
You can reduce the cost of the Visian ICL procedure by setting up a Health Savings Account (HSA) at your bank or contributing to a flexible health benefits program at work. These plans allow you to put away pre-tax dollars that can then be allocated for health expenses. The restrictions on the expenses are usually more relaxed for health savings plans, so you can often use the money towards implantable contact lens surgery.

We have plans that allow you to make interest-free payments during an introductory period and thereafter at attractive interest rates.
