Nearsighted people as well as individuals suffering from astigmatism struggle to view the beautiful world before them, often worrying about scratched or bent glasses or irritating contacts. EVO Visian ICL is an implantable Collamer® lens that corrects for nearsightedness (myopia) and astigmatism, thereby overcoming the deeply uncomfortable dry eye symptoms caused by contacts and the sheer annoyance of visual aids.. With advancements in EVO technology, our ophthalmologists can give you sharp vision in a single, 30-minute procedure for life!
How is EVO Visian ICL Different from Other Vision Correction Options?
EVO Visian ICL is an “additive” eye surgery, meaning it doesn’t remove any tissue. Instead, the Collamer® lens is implanted in the eye behind the iris in front of the natural eye lens with correction for -3 to -20 diopters of nearsightedness. This process makes EVO a reversible eye procedure that offers excellent vision with fewer risks.
While LASIK reshapes the cornea (clear dome at the front of your eye) with a laser and tissue is removed to achieve better eyesight, and the surface layer (epithelium) is removed or folded back with a LASIK flap., EVO Visian ICL doesn’t remove the lens or alter the cornea’s shape. The implantable Collamer® lens is a flexible, biocompatible material that works harmoniously with your eye for excellent vision without making permanent changes to the eye shape or anatomy.
Benefits of EVO Visian ICL
The patient satisfaction rate for EVO Visian ICL is a whopping 99%!
With a downtime of just one day, this technology offers sharper vision day and night without the hassle of prescription eyeglasses and contacts. People with mild to severe nearsightedness may avoid certain activities such as swimming and struggle to function fully without corrective eyewear. EVO Visian ICL eliminates the concern of dry contacts or foggy glasses, and people with severe myopia describe their EVO results as life changing. EVO lenses are removable and offer great night vision As well as have UV protection built directly into the lens.
Candidates for EVO Visian ICL often don’t qualify for LASIK or PRK because of high myopia or other concerns. This technology is approved for adults 21 to 45 years old with mild to severe nearsightedness. Some patients choose EVO to prevent dry eye disease or avoid worsening dry eyes after LASIK.
EVO Visian ICL Procedure
Before the latest advancement in EVO technology, the implantable lenses were placed in two separate procedures on different days. Patients can now have EVO Visian ICL inserted in both eyes in one 30-minute procedure, saving time and providing comprehensive results immediately.
The insertion is quick and painless and starts with eye drops to dilate the pupils and numb the eye. One of our skilled eye surgeons creates a tiny opening at the bottom of the cornea, and the EVO Visian ICL lens is folded and inserted via the incision. Our ophthalmologists adjust the lens for proper alignment and provide an eye drop prescription for the recovery process. Patients will need a trusted friend or family member to drive them home after the EVO placement procedure.
