WHAT IS EVO ICL?
The EVO ICL is a biocompatible lens used in the eye to correct nearsightedness and nearsightedness with astigmatism. EVO ICL is a lens that can be an attractive choice for permanent vision correction even when LASIK is not an option. Over 2,000,000 EVO lenses have been distributed around the world and 99.4% of patients surveyed would have the procedure again.
The results are life changing for me and with EVO, I now can simply wake up and go about my day.
About The EVO ICL Family of Lenses * (EVO)
EVO is a clinically proven implantable lens that corrects common vision problems such as nearsightedness and nearsightedness with astigmatism, which is the need for distance vision correction. EVO is designed for people who are seeking visual freedom from their glasses or contact lenses and are looking for a different solution to existing vision correction procedures.
The EVO procedure is different from other vision correction options, like LASIK, performed by ophthalmologists. EVO is additive; meaning, it is added to the eye and doesn’t remove corneal tissue. The EVO procedure involves implanting (or adding) a biocompatible, flexible lens made from Collamer® into the eye between the iris (colored part of the eye) and the natural lens to correct vision. EVO works in harmony with the natural eye while delivering sharp, clear vision, excellent night vision, built-in UV protection, and does not induce dry eye syndrome. EVO can permanently correct vision without removing corneal tissue and, if desired, is removable by a doctor for added peace of mind. It gives the patient flexibility for the future while helping to eliminate dependency on glasses and contact lenses now.
How EVO Works
EVO is made from Collamer, a collagen co-polymer that is proprietary to STAAR Surgical. Collamer is biocompatible, stable, and flexible, thus making it an ideal lens material for the eye. EVO is slightly smaller than a typical contact lens and is implanted in the eye between the iris (colored part of the eye) and the natural lens to correct vision. The EVO procedure is a 20-30 minute outpatient procedure per eye with quick recovery and little downtime typically. The EVO procedure does not require the removal of any corneal tissue thus it is even suitable for patients with thin corneas. Following the procedure, many patients notice an immediate improvement in vision.
