Life is in the details, and there is no better way to be genuinely happy than enjoying every one of them. So, if your ultimate dream is to experience life without having to deal with contact lenses or glasses, and you’re not a candidate for LASIK, EVO Visian ICL is your best bet.
What is EVO Visian ICL?
Also referred to as the Implantable Collamer® Lens, EVO Visian ICL works to rectify standard vision problems such as nearsightedness (myopia). It’s a refractive implant, which is a perfect choice for patients with or without astigmatism. With this technology, patients get to enjoy vision correction, even if they are not eligible for more common vision correction procedures.
The main agenda of EVO Visian ICL is reducing or completely removing your need for contacts or glasses. Also, your doctor can remove this refractive implant, whenever you want, something you wouldn’t enjoy with permanent refractive solutions.
What Should I Expect During My EVO Visian ICL Procedure?
Since the EVO Visian ICL comprises biocompatible Collamer material, it seamlessly works with your eye to give you the results you desire.
For this, your doctor creates a gap in your cornea, to act as the insertion point for the EVO Visian ICL. The inserting process is usually gentle and painless thanks to the use of numbing drops. After all is set, your doctor will insert and carefully position the implant, a procedure that takes around 20 to 30 minutes. You will immediately begin to enjoy your newly acquired improved vision. You might experience discomfort after surgery, something that’s easily manageable with prescription eye drops/ medication.
EVO surgery is an outpatient procedure.
