69% of people in the UK wear glasses, and 13% of people in the UK wear contact lenses.
If you’re one of those people, have you ever thought about how much those contact lenses cost? If so, you may have hoped for a better alternative. Luckily for you, we have one: Visian ICL eye surgery.
Visian ICL surgery is a low-risk surgery that produces sharp, clear vision in 20-30 minutes or less.
How much does Visian ICL surgery cost, though? You’ll be surprised to find out it’s much more affordable than you think. Imagine not having to spend money on glasses and contacts for the rest of your life.
Continue reading to find out what Visian ICL eye surgery is and how much it will cost you.
What is Visian ICL surgery?
Visian ICL surgery places implantable contact lenses in your eyes. It’s a permanent correction that requires no maintenance once the surgery is complete.
It’s possible for your surgeon to remove or replace these lenses if your eyes and vision change over time.
These contact lenses work by allowing light to focus on the retina correctly. This, in turn, allows for a clearer and sharper image.
This surgery can improve eyesight if you have short-sightedness, long-sightedness and astigmatism.
Visian ICL is particularly beneficial for those who suffer from dry eye or have thin corneas.
Often, for extreme short-sightedness, ICL surgery can achieve more positive results than LASIK. If you’re not a candidate for LASIK, you’ll likely still be a candidate for Visian ICL surgery.
Visian ICL surgery cost
The cost of Visian ICL surgery varies depending on where you have it and the experience of your provider. The cost also depends on the extent of vision correction you need and the type of contact lens that you select.
At Eye Clinic London, you can get Visian ICL surgery for £3250 per eye. Although this may seem like a large investment, it actually works out much cheaper than the cost of glasses and contact lenses in the long term.
Optometry Today supports research that found that Brits average lifetime spend on glasses and contact lenses is £17,471.
After Visian ICL surgery, most people won’t need to buy glasses or contacts again. This equates to huge savings.
Is Visian ICL eye surgery covered by insurance?
Visian ICL eye surgery is considered cosmetic surgery and not a medical necessity. Because of this, your insurance is unlikely to cover the costs. In certain cases, your insurance may cover part of the costs.
You should check with your insurance provider before your procedure. This will help you determine whether your insurance will cover any of the costs.
How much does Visian ICL surgery cost?
Compared to the lifetime cost of glasses and contact lenses, Visian ICL eye surgery is a far more cost-effective alternative. In some cases, it may even be covered by your insurance.
