EVO® Visian ICL™ is essentially an implantable contact lens. It is a permanent, artificial lens that is implanted into the eye, right behind the iris, to correct your vision. ICL is a great vision correction choice for patients with thin corneas or dry eye and who have moderate to severe nearsightedness (-2.50 to -20.0), with or without astigmatism. ICL is a lens-based refractive surgical option that introduced a lens to the eye instead of altering the shape of the cornea, as with LASIK or PRK.
The Visian ICL™ (Implantable Collamer Lens) is an advanced soft-material lens composed of 100% biocompatible collagen copolymer. It provides UV protection and permanent vision correction while giving patients a quality of vision that is sharper and clearer than can be achieved with glasses or contacts.
The EVO® Visian ICL™ is intended to remain in place as long as you are satisfied with your vision. If at any point your vision changes or you wish to have them removed, it can be done easily and without compromising your current vision whatsoever.
