Alternative to Laser Vision Correction:
EVO Visian ICL™
Sometimes laser vision correction isn’t the best option because it involves the removal of corneal tissue to alter the shape of the cornea. Implantable Collamer® Lenses (ICLs) are another way to achieve sharp vision by inserting biocompatible lenses into your eyes that can be removed in the future if necessary.
At Fisher-Swale-Nicholson Eye Center, we offer the EVO Visian ICL™ made by STAAR Surgical. We take time to fully assess your eye health to determine which type of procedure will produce the best vision results. If your eyes meet any of these criteria, we may recommend the EVO Visian ICL:
- Mild to severe nearsightedness or astigmatism
- Thin corneas
- History of dry eye
How the EVO Visian ICL Works
Made from biocompatible Collamer®, this lens is implanted into your eye through a tiny corneal incision. The lens allows light entering the eye to focus on the retina for clear vision. Even though the lens will be invisible to others, it can make your vision sharper and more vivid. Some patients will see more clearly immediately after the procedure is performed.
Benefits of EVO Visian ICL
- Collamer lens material works in harmony with your eye’s natural chemistry
- Does not cause dry eye syndrome
- Excellent night vision
- Provides a layer of UV protection for your eyes
- Permanent, yet removable option for vision improvement
- Procedure takes just 20-30 minutes
- Recovery is quick
- Results are often immediate
- Lens is unnoticeable to others
- Sharp, clear vision
- No removal of corneal tissue
The procedure itself typically causes very little discomfort and no pain for most patients because the eye is numbed with a topical or local anesthetic prior to the procedure. It is performed in our office as an outpatient procedure.
People who want a flexible and biocompatible vision correction option, as well as many patients who are not candidates for laser vision correction, find that EVO Visian ICL is the right procedure for them.
