Life is all about the details, and we want you to enjoy every single
one. EVO Visian ICL is made for people who want to experience life
without the hassle of glasses or contact lenses.
EVO Visian ICL, also called an Implantable Collamer® Lens, is a refractive implant to correct common vision issues like myopia (nearsightedness) with or without astigmatism. Unlike some other vision correction options, the EVO Visian ICL is an additive technology that corrects vision without the removal of any corneal tissue. The EVO Visian ICL is meant to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses and contacts and unlike most permanent refractive solutions, EVO Visian ICL is removable by your doctor, for added peace of mind.
EVO Visian ICL is made of biocompatible Collamer material that works in harmony with your eye. Your eye doctor will create a small opening in your cornea that will be used to insert and position the EVO Visian ICL. For most patients, the procedure is virtually painless with numbing drops and it typically takes less than 20 – 30 minutes. Patients typically experience improved vision right away and a quick recovery time.
The cost of an EVO Visian ICL procedure can vary depending on your personalized treatment plan. Many EVO Visian ICL patients look forward to spending less in the long run with the EVO Visian ICL compared to the continued costs of contacts and glasses. Ask about financing options that may be available for your EVO Visian ICL procedure.
EVO Visian ICL is well-suited for a wide variety of people. Ideal candidates for EVO Visian ICL are aged 21 to 45 with nearsightedness with or without astigmatism and have maintained a stable prescription for at least one year. If you are seeking a solution to decrease or eliminate the cost and frustration of traditional contacts or glasses, EVO Visian ICL may be your answer.
