EVO ICL

High-Powered Correction

The EVO ICL (Implantable Collamer Lens) is an advanced vision correction treatment technology and LASIK alternative for those patients with moderate to severe nearsightedness, astigmatism, dry eyes, thin corneas, or any combination of these issues. Simply put, EVO ICL can be a BETTER option than LASIK for many people and does not involve the removal of any corneal tissues. Laser vision correction is life-changing, and EVO ICL has produced remarkable outcomes for our patients.

The EVO lens used in this procedure is much like a regular contact lens, but unlike contact lenses, EVO lenses are entirely maintenance-free and UV-protective. Best of all, phakic intraocular lens implantation, such as the EVO ICL lens, is quick, and you can see improvements in your vision almost immediately.

EVO ICL Overview

How it Works

To correct your vision, the advanced Collamer Lens is inserted into your eye, in front of the natural crystalline lens but behind the iris, so it is invisible to anyone looking at you. The EVO lens corrects your prescription (refractive error) and will have you seeing clearly – without glasses or contacts.

Who is a Candidate?

A good candidate for EVO ICL surgery is typically someone with a higher degree of nearsightedness (myopia), with or without astigmatism, or patients with thin corneas or dry eye syndrome. The typical candidate would wear glasses or corrective lenses, like contacts. Unlike some other vision correction procedures, age is less of a factor for this procedure. If you have been told you are not a candidate for LASIK or other laser eye surgery in the past, this may be the perfect procedure for you!

Is it Safe?

EVO ICL has an excellent track record, with over 1 million ICL lenses implanted to date in 63 different countries. The procedure is also reversible; the lens can be removed at any time and does not permanently change the shape or structure of the eye.

Popular Benefits

  •  With EVO ICL, we are able to treat levels of nearsightedness that far exceed the limits of LASIK.
  •  The visual outcomes have been shown in several studies to be as good as or better than LASIK for high prescriptions.
  •  EVO ICL surgery is quick, virtually painless, and the results are immediate.
  • It’s removable should your prescription CHANGE or other vision needs arise.
  •  20/20 or it’s FREE ClearSight Guarantee

Technology Matters

With the Implantable Collamer Lens technology, we can now treat nearsightedness levels that were previously thought to be untreatable.

The EVO ICL is made from Collamer, an exclusive technologically advanced lens material. Because of the collagen in Collamer, it is bio-compatible with the eye, creates clear, sharp vision, and provides built-in UV protection.

Each patient’s lenses are hand-selected and customized by the surgeon to ensure the best possible results. This procedure can also be combined with a LASIK treatment if we find it will improve results further.

More FAQs about EVO Visian ICL

The EVO ICL is designed to be a long-term solution for vision correction. But unlike other methods, the ICL may be changed if necessary. With nearly 1 million EVO ICL lenses implanted, many people’s futures seem to be clearer, brighter, and sharper.

Once the implantable collamer artificial lens implantation is complete, the EVO ICL lens does not move, and you should not be able to feel or see it.

The EVO ICL is designed to not interfere with any of the eye’s structures and maintain its place on its own. It is implanted between the patient’s natural crystalline lens and the iris (colored part of the eye). The EVO is biocompatible and once it is in place it does not move.

You should inquire about the EVO ICL even if your eye doctor has advised against LASIK or PRK since it is effective for individuals with a variety of lifestyles and vision goals. EVO ICL has been designed to treat moderate myopia (nearsightedness) and even high myopia and is also an option if you have thin corneas. It can also treat myopic astigmatism and moderate myopic astigmatism.

The EVO ICL (implantable collamer lens) is an additive technology that corrects eyesight without removing any corneal tissue, in contrast to several other vision correction solutions. Unlike other permanent types of vision correction surgery, the EVO lenses are removable and designed to lessen or eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses.

With and without astigmatism, the FDA has approved EVO ICL for a variety of myopic (nearsightedness) correction needs. Even though EVO ICL is less advertised than LASIK or other treatments, it has long been shown to be secure, safe, reliable, and no adverse effects. At your evaluation appointment, your ClearSight eye surgeon will go through and discuss any potential risks related to EVO ICL and make sure you feel confident about your decision to have vision correction surgery.

Before approving the EVO ICL, the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) investigated it for many years in the clinical trials. Prior to FDA approval in the United States, EVO ICLs had also been used for over ten years in Europe and Asia, where a lengthy 10-year study had shown their stability and safety. In this research, there were no long-term problems and no incidence of infection or cataract development throughout the 10-year follow-up period. Worldwide, more than a million EVO operations have been performed. The ICL, EVO’s predecessor, has been in use in the US since 2005 and has almost the same safety record.

The lens’ full detachability is one of EVO ICL’s many advantages. ICL lenses are worn permanently by the vast majority of patients. However, you can be reassured to know that you have the choice to remove them if your prescription (refraction) changes or if any other health issues arise. Despite the low likelihood of needing them removed, it is reassuring to have the option.

Myopia and high myopia (seeing things in a distance is difficult) are both corrected with EVO ICL procedures. Hyperopia (farsightedness, meaning reading and viewing close objects is challenging) is not corrected with EVO ICL. Presbyopia, a loss of reading vision that is a normal part of aging, is another condition that EVO Visian ICLs can not address.

The majority of patients feel little to no pain during or after surgery. Some patients report feeling pressure on their eyes, although they do not state that it is painful. Because the EVO ICL technique only requires a small, self-healing incision, it often causes less discomfort and requires less time to recuperate than some other vision correction procedures.

The majority of Implantable Collamer Lens procedures are finished in about 15 minutes. Almost immediately, patients notice a remarkable improvement in their vision. You will be amazed at how clear and improved your vision is right after surgery. The next day, you will likely be able to go back to their jobs or regular activities with your visual acuity approving each day.

In order to correct myopia and myopic astigmatism, the EVO ICL, sometimes called implantable contact lens, is implanted in a patient’s eye. Up to 20D of myopia and up to 4D of astigmatism may be treated with the EVO ICL medical procedure. The best approach to determine whether EVO ICL is appropriate for you is to arrange a consultation during which you may discuss your vision correction options with the ClearSight team.

If any of the following apply, EVO ICL may be right for you:

  • You’re searching for a vision correction treatment for moderate to severe nearsightedness (with or without astigmatism)
  • Your prescription has not changed considerably in the last 12 months.
  • Your eyes are in good health besides being nearsighted or astigmatic

The majority of patients return to their regular routines right away after eye surgery. However, there are a few things that should be avoided. For at least a week after surgery, you should refrain from rubbing or bumping your eyes, lifting objects weighing more than 20 pounds, going swimming, using hot tubs, engaging in water sports, or putting water or soap in their eyes directly. It’s crucial to refrain from rubbing your eyes for a week after surgery. After the initial recovery period, it will not be particularly harmful to rub your eyes. Because the ICL is located deep within the eye, far from the surface, it cannot be damaged by contact. It should be emphasized though that generally it is never a good idea to touch your eyes.

Call ClearSight today to schedule a consultation with one of our eye doctors and learn more about intraocular lens implantation and other types of vision correction refractive surgery that may be right for you.
