What is the EVO Visian ICL?

The EVO Visian ICL is a phakic IOL and implantable collamer lens. Collamer is a biocompatible material that won't cause dry eyes after implantation.

It also protects your eyes from the sun's UV rays and promotes a natural feel. Once it's in your eye, you won't be able to feel it, and nobody will know it's there unless you tell them.

The EVO Visian ICL is positioned inside the eye between your iris and your natural lens. It's an additive lens that doesn't require reshaping the cornea or removing the natural lens to correct your vision.

You can have it removed at any time, including if your vision worsens and you need a procedure like cataract surgery in the future to have an IOL implanted. For patients with astigmatism, the EVO Visian ICL also comes in a toric model.

Who is a Good Candidate for the EVO Visian ICL?

You may be a good candidate for the EVO Visian ICL if the following applies to you:

  • You're nearsighted with a prescription of up to -20 diopters
  • You have astigmatism of up to -4 diopters
  • You want to reduce your dependence on glasses and contact lenses
  • You're not currently pregnant or nursing
  • You have a stable prescription that's remained unchanged for at least a year or more
  • You're in good health
  • You have healthy eyes
  • You have realistic expectations about what the EVO Visian ICL can achieve

What are the Benefits of the EVO Visian ICL?

There are many benefits to choosing the EVO Visian ICL! Besides achieving visual freedom, you can look forward to things like:

  • Fast recovery so you can get back to the things you love faster
  • Not having to worry about seeing or feeling the EVO Visian ICL after it's in place
  • Fewer concerns about dry eyes
  • Excellent night vision
  • The option to have the EVO Visian ICL removed at any time

The EVO Visian ICL lets you see the world in crisp, bright detail. You won't have to look at everything around you with frames or boundaries holding you back.

Can I Still Get the EVO Visian ICL if I Don't Qualify for LASIK?

Yes! Many people choose the EVO Visian ICL because they want to correct their vision even after discovering they don't qualify for LASIK.

To safely have LASIK, you need to have thick enough corneas. If your corneas are too thin, it can be unsafe to undergo the procedure and have a flap created during LASIK to correct your refractive errors.

But for some of these patients, getting the EVO Visian ICL is a much better fit. No flap is created when you have the EVO Visian ICL put in your eye.

No tissue is removed, so even if your corneas are thin, you may still be a good candidate for the EVO Visian ICL. The EVO Visian ICL is also suitable for people with dry eyes.

Because the EVO Visian ICL is made from a biocompatible material called collamer, it won't cause dry eyes. This makes the EVO Visian ICL a much safer and more effective vision correction procedure for patients with dry eyes.
