The EVO Visian ICL is an Implantable Collamer Lens that works with the eye to correct vision. Unlike traditional contact lenses that go on the surface of the eye, the EVO Visian ICL is positioned inside the eye between the iris (the coloured part of the eye) and the natural lens where it stays indefinitely.
Because EVO Visian ICL preserves 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.
One of the most common concerns people have about laser-based correction is that the procedure permanently changes the shape of their eye by removing corneal tissue. An advantage of the EVO Visian ICL is that it can permanently correct your vision, yet no natural tissue is removed. If for the unlikely event you need or wish to remove your EVO Visian ICLs in the future, your doctor can accommodate you.
The EVO Visian ICL has been approved in Europe since 1997 and in the US since 2005. In that time, over 550,000 eyes have been implanted with Visian ICLs by certified, specialized surgeons. In a clinical trial, patients reported a 99% satisfaction rate.
Advantages of EVO Visian ICL
Many vision correction procedures promise an improved level of vision, but few vision correction alternatives offer the quality and features found with the EVO Visian ICL.
- Sharp, clear Vision
- Does not induce dry eye syndrome
- Excellent night vision
- Great for those with thin corneas
- UV protection built into the biocompatible lenses
- Treats moderate to high myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism.
Hyperopic lenses require an additional tiny opening in the coloured portion of your eye to ensure that the fluid inside your eye flows properly. Please consult your physician for more details.
