Individuals who suffer from extreme nearsightedness will have a solution for their poor vision. The EVO Visian ICL provides an opportunity for those individuals who are not candidates for LASIK eye surgery.
Some people cannot have LASIK for reasons ranging from high prescriptions to thin corneas. The EVO Visian ICL will now allow these patients to experience the same lifestyle change that LASIK has brought to millions.
You’re likely a good candidate for the EVO Visian ICL if:
Quality of Vision – The EVO Visian ICL not only improves visual acuity but also improves produces visual quality. Many patients experience the “Wow” factor when they experience an immediate improvement in the quality of their vision.
Biocompatibility – Collamer, the 100 percent pure collagen copolymer lens material of the EVO Visian ICL, is not viewed as a foreign object by the body’s immune system.
Versatility – The EVO Visian ICL offers a broader treatment range for myopia than LASIK and PRK procedures.
Simplicity – Unlike traditional contact lenses, once the EVO Visian ICL is implanted in the eye, no additional maintenance is needed.
Lens Placement – The placement of the EVO Visian ICL makes the lens invisible to the patient and any observer.
Removable – The EVO Visian ICL was designed to be permanently placed in the eye. However, the lens can be removed if a patient’s vision changes or if it otherwise needs to be removed or replaced.
Before the EVO Visian ICL procedure, you'll have your eyes numbed with a light topical or local anesthetic. After numbing your eyes, your surgeon will create two side port incisions and one main temporal incision critical to the insertion process.
Next, the surgeon will insert the EVO Visian ICL through the main temporal incision and place the lens behind the iris and in front of the crystalline lens. This insertion procedure is typically performed one eye at a time.
There is very little discomfort and normally no pain associated with the procedure. Some drops or perhaps oral medication may be prescribed, and a visit is usually scheduled the day after surgery. Patients will be advised to arrange for someone to drive them to and from surgery.
