Visian ICL surgery produces sharp, clear vision, but how much does Visian ICL surgery cost? Learn more in this complete guide to costs.

69% of people in the UK wear glasses, and 13% of people in the UK wear contact lenses.11

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.12

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.13

Often, for extreme short-sightedness, ICL surgery can achieve more positive results than LASIK.14 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 £17,471.15

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.

His demeanour was of a man who knew his trade. He speaks in a way that you will understand. He explains exactly what is wrong and the way he will help fix it for you.”

Sam Brock

“Mr Hamada’s London Eye Care and his team are a delight. Nothing was too much trouble and the help, support, advice and guidance before during and after the surgery was all world class. I have worn glasses since the age of 13 years and had the onset of cataracts for the last five so it has all been very much a life changing experience to be free from glasses once more.”

Timothy Thompson

“Mr Hamada, his assistant Joanna and his ophthalmic technicians provide a caring, efficient and high quality service. From the admin through to the surgical aftercare we were very well looked after and we had a high degree of confidence in Mr Hamada’s abilities. Our daughter’s cataracts have been corrected (under general anaesthetic) and her quality of life has improved substantially. You also feel well cared for throughout – the human touch is vital in healthcare, but not always delivered, so well done and thanks to all of the team.”
