EVO Visian ICL Lens

This very thin, soft, flexible lens made of Collamer (an advanced lens material that is highly biocompatible) is implanted in the eye behind the iris and in front of the natural lens. The EVO ICL is microscopically thin and is easily inserted into the eye through a small incision that doesn’t require sutures.

The lens acts as an internal contact lens, providing immediate and permanent vision correction. It is best suited for people with moderate to severe myopia or nearsightedness and is a wonderful alternative to LASIK for these people, often producing visual results that are even better than traditional glasses or contacts.

The lens is made out of collagen, a naturally occurring protein, so it works in harmony with the eye. Even so, if there are any problems, the lens can be easily removed at any time, with few side effects.

There is no maintenance associated with the lens, and it is intended to remain in place as long as you are satisfied with your vision. If at any point your vision changes or you wish to have it removed, it can be done easily and without compromising your vision whatsoever.

Advantages of the EVO ICL

If you are between the ages of 21 and 50, and suffer from a moderate to severe degree of nearsightedness with or without astigmatism, then you may be a candidate for this great procedure and the advantages it provides. These include:

Patient Satisfaction

99% patient satisfaction was reported in the FDA clinical studies for the EVO ICL over three years after the procedure.

Immediate Improvement

Immediate vision improvement at all distances – eliminating the need for glasses or contacts

Sharp, Clear Vision

You can enjoy a new level of vision correction that’s sharper, clearer, more vivid, and has greater depth and dimension.

Permanent, Yet Removable

One of the important advantages of the EVO ICL is that while it can permanently correct your vision, the lens can be simply removed and/or replaced if necessary.

Does Not Cause Dry Eye

EVO ICL does not cause or contribute to dry eyes. If you have dry eyes, ask your doctor if the EVO ICL may be the best vision correction option for you.

Short Recovery Time

The recovery for the EVO ICL is quick and pain-free, and may be as little as one day, due to the very small size of the opening required. Patients typically experience minimal discomfort, and many times go back to work the next day.

UV Protection

Long-term exposure to UV radiation can damage your eyes and might increase the development of cataracts. The EVO ICL advanced lens material contains a UV blocker that prevents harmful UVA and UVB rays from entering the eye.

Flexibility for the Future

Your vision changes as you grow older and eventually almost everyone will need cataract surgery. Because EVO ICL maintains the structure of the eye, the lens can be removed and replaced if your vision changes substantially, or if you have another procedure at any time.

Simplify Your Life

There is no daily maintenance as with traditional contact lenses, and no concern of problems from daily activities such as swimming and sports.

For Non-LASIK Candidates

Patients who have corneas too thin or prescriptions too high for LASIK can still live a life glasses free thanks to this procedure.

How the EVO ICL is Implanted

The procedure is performed on a simple outpatient basis and usually only takes 10-15 minutes per eye.

Your eyes will be numbed with local anesthesia.

A microscopic, self-sealing incision is made and the lens will be injected into place.

A microscopic, self-sealing incision is made and the lens will be injected into place.

The lens is tucked behind the iris and is positioned into the correct orientation.

There is little discomfort and the results are immediate.
