EVO ICL™ – EVOlution in Visual Freedom
What is EVO ICL Lens?
EVO ICL is an Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) designed to correct nearsightedness with and without astigmatism. The small flexible lens is placed behind the iris (the colored part of the eye) and in front of the natural crystalline lens in order to improve vision. It’s like having your doctor implant a lens similar to a contact lens into your eye so you can live without the daily hassles and maintenance of typical contact lenses.
EVO ICL Procedure
– What to Expect
EVO ICL lens 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 ICL. For most patients, the procedure is virtually painless with numbing eye drops, and it typically takes less than 20 – 30 minutes. Patients typically experience improved vision right away and a quick recovery time.

Important Safety Information
The EVO Visian ICL lens is intended to correct/reduce nearsightedness between -3.0 D up to -20.0 D and treat astigmatism from 1.0 D to 4.0 D. If you have nearsightedness within these ranges, EVO Visian ICL surgery may improve your distance vision without eyeglasses or contact lenses. Because the EVO Visian ICL corrects for distance vision, it does not eliminate the need for reading glasses.
To determine if you are an appropriate candidate for EVO Visian ICL surgery, you should have a complete eye examination and talk with your eye care professional about potential benefits, risks, complications, and recovery time. Complications, although rare, may include need for additional surgical procedures, inflammation, loss of cells from the back surface of the cornea, increase in eye pressure, and cataracts.
You should NOT have EVO Visian ICL surgery if 1) your eye shape is not appropriate; 2) you do not meet the minimum endothelial cell density for your age; 3) you have moderate to severe glaucoma; 4) your vision is not stable; or 5) you are pregnant or nursing.
