What is EVO ICL?
EVO ICL is an implantable collamer lens that can correct common refractive errors, such as myopia. This refractive implant can restore vision and eliminate or greatly reduce reliance on glasses or contact lenses for clear vision. The lens is composed of flexible and thin plastic and collagen and works seamlessly with the natural structures in the eye to help correct your vision.
There are many benefits associated with receiving the EVO ICL, including:
Clearer vision: The most significant benefit of the EVO ICL is the significant improvement in vision. It works harmoniously with the eye’s natural lens to correctly refract light onto the retina, resulting in crisp vision for the patient.
Reduced dependence on glasses: For many, a life without the need for glasses and contact lenses is more carefree and enjoyable. Glasses can break, fog up, or become scratched, while contacts can be lost or torn. For individuals who have certain lifestyles, such as athletes, swimmers, or those who lead active lives, glasses and contacts can act as a hindrance as they participate in their activities. The EVO ICL can provide great vision without glasses. In the event glasses are necessary after the procedure, it is often limited to reading glasses that are only necessary in certain situations.
Removable if necessary: While the EVO ICL is designed to remain in the eye, it can be removed if necessary. However, it is important to note that removing the lens will also eliminate vision correction benefits.
Undetectable: The EVO ICL is inserted between the lens and the iris. No one will be able to observe the implantable lens in your eyes.
Comfort: The flexible material from which the lens is comprised, as well as its skillful placement in the eye, allows for a comfortable vision correction solution.
EVO ICL is FDA-approved, meaning it has been determined to be an effective and safe treatment. Furthermore, when this solution is recommended by qualified professionals, such as the experts at Mittleman Eye, they have judged the risks and benefits to you specifically, determining that the procedure is right for your needs. As with any medical procedure, there are risks associated with the EVO ICL. These may include additional surgery following the first procedure, raised intraocular pressure, and loss of endothelial cells. However, opting to receive treatment from highly skilled professionals can reduce your chances of experiencing complications related to the procedure.
To be considered for ICL surgery, you will first undergo an evaluation to determine if the procedure is a good option for you.
ICL surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure, making it a convenient solution for patients. Your eyes will be numbed to ensure you are comfortable during the procedure. The implantable lenses will be inserted through a tiny incision in each of your eyes.
After surgery, you will be able to go home, but someone will need to drive you. Mild discomfort is common the day after surgery, but medication can help. After two weeks, your eyes should be healed, allowing you to experience the joys of clear vision.
