EVO Visian ICL

An Evolution of Visual Freedom

EVO Visian ICL eye surgery is an incredible solution for many people seeking to see life without glasses and contacts lenses being a nuisance. If you are seeking a vision correction solution that will put an end to the hassle and ongoing cost of glasses and contact lenses, the EVO ICL may be right for you. We are very pleased to be able to offer this amazing lens implants to our patients in Mississippi.

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.

Are you a Candidate?

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.

You’re likely a good candidate for ICL if:

  • You have extreme to moderate nearsightedness
  • You have thin corneas and are not a LASIK candidate
  • You have a history of dry eye
  • You have large pupils
  • You have a chronic disease associated with hormone fluctuations
  • You have diabetes (there is a risk of diabetic retinopathy)

Originally launched in late 2005 the original Visian ICL has undergone some tremendous technological advancements that will lead to greater patient convenience. 

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.

What happens during the EVO Visian ICL eye surgery?

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.
