The EVO Visian ICL is a revolutionary refractive lens that can correct vision up to –20 diopters of nearsightedness and offers a refractive correction solution to patients with high amounts of nearsightedness. The EVO ICL procedure has been repeatedly improved through years of studies and continued refinement. This lens is a posterior chamber implant that is situated behind the iris and in front of the natural crystalline lens. It is also known as a Phakic IOL. The surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, meaning that a patient has surgery and leaves the same day.
The EVO Visian ICL provides an opportunity for those individuals who are not candidates for LASIK eye surgery. Some people cannot have LASIK for reasons ranging from high prescriptions to thin corneas. The ICL gives these patients the opportunity to experience the same lifestyle change that LASIK has brought to millions.

EVO Visian ICL is very similar the original Visian ICL with the main difference being that more people qualify. The prep process for the EVO ICL surgery has been simplified and reduces visits for patient convenience.
After an initial eye exam with your ophthalmologist to determine that the EVO Visian ICL is right for you, you will schedule your procedure. On the day of the procedure, your eyes will be numbed with an anesthetic eye drop and your refractive surgeon will implant the EVO Visian ICL between the iris (colored part of the eye) and the natural lens. Your surgeon will likely schedule a follow-up appointment the same day as the procedure.
