What is EVO ICL?

EVO is a biocompatible Implantable Collamer® Lens (ICL) that is placed into your eyes to correct nearsightedness or astigmatism. Unlike other vision correction procedures, no corneal tissue is permanently removed from your eyes. The EVO lens is simply added to your eye. You won’t feel it or see it – but it can work wonders to help you achieve clear vision. Another bonus: the lens can be removed in the future if necessary.


Are You a Candidate?

At Fisher-Swale-Nicholson Eye Center, we take time to fully assess your eye health to determine which type of vision correction procedure will produce the best vision results. If your eyes meet any of these criteria, we may recommend the EVO ICL:

  • Mild to severe nearsightedness or astigmatism
  • Thin corneas
  • History of dry eye
  • Ages 21-45

5 Steps to Better Vision

1. Pre-op Eye Exam
2. Eye Drops Administered

4. Lens Insertion & Positioning
5. Post-op & Check-up

How the EVO ICL Works

The lens is implanted into your eye through one tiny corneal incision to allow light entering the eye to focus on the retina for clear vision. Most patients report that the 20-30 minute procedure is virtually painless. 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.
