There’s a big difference between “visual acuity” (20/20 vision is considered normal visual acuity) and “visual quality.” Many refractive procedures such as LASIK offer the promise of improved visual acuity but the quality of your vision may vary significantly based on the procedure you choose. The EVO Visian ICL provides vision correction that goes beyond LASIK. It helps you enjoy sharper, clearer, and more vivid vision, with greater depth and dimension.
When compared to other refractive surgical procedures, the EVO Visian ICL creates sharper vision. The immediate improvement of vision quality and the remarkably short and painless recovery produces a unique "WOW!" factor in patients.
The "High Definition Vision” delivered by the EVO Visian ICL makes this proven, technologically advanced vision correction procedure the choice for patients who need and expect high quality results. In fact, the U.S. military has embraced the EVO Visian ICL because of the reliable visual clarity it achieves. The EVO Visian ICL is clearly the choice for patients with an active lifestyle and those who cannot accept anything less than the highest quality vision.
NO DRY EYES
Only EVO Visian ICL's proprietary lenses are made of biocompatible Collamer. That means the lens material works in harmony with the natural chemistry of your eye and body. The ability to utilize materials your eye accepts while not reshaping your cornea means the ICL can minimize unnatural causes of dry eye syndrome.
A REMOVABLE OPTION
We describe the implant process as an additive corrective procedure. The procedure adds a corrective lens to correct nearsightedness. That means that should your prescription update or if other vision needs arise, if you and your doctor decide, your doctor can simply remove the lens.
QUICK PROCEDURE AND RECOVERY
The EVO Visian ICL procedure has been refined down to a quick and comfortable process. Most procedures are completed within 20-30 minutes or less. With a minimally invasive procedure, many achieve improved vision nearly immediately.
As the name itself, it is an implantable lens that gives excellent vision.
This is for people who have refractive error and/or thin corneal thickness and cannot undergo LASIK surgery.
It is made from soft biocompatible co-polymer of Collamer and Fibronectin. It vaults over the eye’s crystalline lens.
We currently use the V4c model with KS-AquaPORT central flow design. AquaPORT is found in the center of the ICL optic, to optimize the flow of fluid within the eye.
It is inserted through a small incision in the cornea by making use of an injection cartridge. The cartridge’s tip that contains the pre-folded ICL will then be introduced into the anterior chamber. Then ICL will be slowly injected into the eye under the protection of a material (clear viscoelastic) previously placed in the anterior chamber. This is done to properly protect the crystalline lens and cornea.
Next, the lens’ four haptics will be placed below the iris. It will be done by depressing the haptics by using a special instrument.
One needs to undergo a Refractive Surgery Suitability Screening. This is similar to exams conducted in individuals desiring laser refractive surgery. It takes around 2 hours. View our refractive surgery screening page for more information.
EVO Visian ICL costs vary depending on your prescription, and location. Upon consultation with us, your certified EVO Visian ICL provider, we will provide you with actual costs, financing options and payment plans.
Refractive surgery suitability screening is performed on day 1. The appropriate EVO Visian ICL power is ordered, and is usually available within 2 to 7 days. Special order lenses are available within 6 to 12 weeks.
Ocular pressures are monitored closely within the first 24-48 hours. Once the eye pressure is controlled, routine refractive surgery follow up schedule on the 1st week and 1st month post-op is suggested. Routine daily activities may be resumed after 48 hours, with minimal restrictions (swimming, strenuous activities).
