What is EVO Visian ICL?

EVO ICL, called an Implantable Collamer® Lens, is a refractive implant to correct common vision issues like nearsightedness and astigmatism. It’s meant to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contacts. Unlike other vision correction options, the EVO ICL is an additive technology that corrects vision without removing corneal tissue and is removable.

Benefits of EVO ICL

Some of the most notable EVO ICL benefits include the following:

No Dry Contact Lenses, Even When You Fly

EVO ICL does not cause contact lens-induced dry eye or dry eye syndrome. It sits inside your eye, eliminating the hassle of putting in and taking out your contact lenses daily. Additionally, traveling with EVO ICL doesn’t lead to dry eyes from contact lenses, so that you can stay on the go comfortably and confidently. Enjoy extraordinary vision to accomplish your everyday activities from the minute you wake up to when you go to sleep!

It Only Takes 30 Minutes

The EVO ICL procedure is minimally invasive, and the lens is implanted through a small opening allowing for a quick operation and recovery time.

Sharp, clear vision day and night 

Experience more of what your day and night have to offer without compromising your night vision. You’ll still be able to see clearly while driving at night and catch the movies and shows you love even from a distance because EVO ICL corrects and reduces nearsightedness (myopia).

Some of the other EVO ICL benefits include the following:

  • Significant vision improvement
  • 99% patient satisfaction
  • Over 1 million procedures performed worldwide
  • Quick results
  • Can be removed if needed
  • Offers UV protection
  • Undetectable once in place
  • It may be an option for patients who are not candidates for other vision correction procedures

EVO ICL Procedure

EVO ICL is made of biocompatible Collamer material that works harmoniously with your eye. Your eye doctor will create a small opening in your cornea to insert and position the EVO ICL. The procedure is typically painless with numbing eye drops, usually taking less than 20 – 30 minutes. You can experience improved vision right away and a quick recovery time.

Am I a Good Candidate for EVO ICL?

The implantable contact lens is best for people with nearsightedness but who are not great LASIK candidates. Ideal candidates for EVO ICL in Manhattan & Brooklyn at New York Laser Vision:

  • Are aged 21 to 45
  • Have maintained a stable prescription for at least one year
  • Are seeking a vision correction solution for moderate to severe nearsightedness (with or without astigmatism)
  • Have good ocular health with no history of glaucoma, iritis, or diabetic eye disease 

However, Visian ICL is not an option for patients who are pregnant, nursing, or those with a history of eye disease.

Who is a Candidate for Vision Correction with EVO Visian ICL?

People who want a flexible and biocompatible vision correction option and many patients who are not candidates for laser vision correction may find that Visian EVO ICL is the best procedure for them.

How is the EVO Visian ICL Lens Procedure Performed?

On the day of the procedure, your eyes will be numbed with an anesthetic eye drop, and your refractive surgeon will implant the ICL between the iris and the natural lens.

Can the EVO Visian ICL Lens be Removed?

Yes! The EVO Visian ICL is intended to provide permanent vision correction, but your surgeon can remove or upgrade it.

Will I be able to feel the EVO Visian ICL Lens?

No! Patients should not feel the lens as it does not adhere to structures within the eye and does not move once in place.

Will other people be able to see the EVO Visian ICL Lens?

No! The Visian EVO lens is placed behind your iris, where only your eye doctor can detect it.

Are there any risks with the EVO Visian ICL Procedure?

Potential complications of the EVO ICL procedure include:
