About Visian ICL
What is EVO Visian ICL?
EVO Visian ICL, also called an Implantable Collamer® Lens, is a refractive implant to correct common vision issues like myopia (nearsightedness) with or without astigmatism. Unlike some other vision correction options, the EVO Visian ICL is an additive technology that corrects vision without the removal of any corneal tissue. The EVO Visian ICL is meant to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses and contacts and unlike most permanent refractive solutions, EVO Visian ICL is removable by your doctor, for added peace of mind.
EVO Visian ICL Procedure - What to Expect
EVO Visian ICL is made of biocompatible Collamer material that works in harmony with your eye. Your eye doctor will create a small opening in your cornea that will be used to insert and position the EVO Visian ICL. For most patients, the procedure is virtually painless with numbing drops and it typically takes 10 minutes per eye. Patients typically experience improved vision right away and a quick recovery time.
Is EVO Visian ICL Right For Me?

How does EVO Visian ICL Work?
The EVO Visian ICL is a long lasting solution for myopic refractive errors. Through its unique design, the EVO Visian ICL offers excellent quality of vision and freedom from glasses and/or contacts. Patients who are not candidates for LASIK or PRK may still be very good candidates for the ICL and can enjoy life without corrective eyewear.
Your eye is numbed with a topical anesthetic drops.
Your surgeon will make a small corneal incision through which the ICL will be inserted into the eye.
The ICL is positioned behind the iris and in front of the natural lens.
Important Safety Information for Visian ICL
The EVO Visian ICL lens is intended to correct/reduce nearsightedness between -3.0 D up to -20.0 D and treat astigmatism from 1.0 D to 4.0 D. If you have nearsightedness within these ranges, EVO Visian ICL surgery may improve your distance vision without eyeglasses or contact lenses. Because the EVO Visian ICL corrects for distance vision, it does not eliminate the need for reading glasses, you may require them at some point, even if you have never worn them before. Since implantation of the EVO Visian ICL is a surgical procedure, before considering EVO Visian ICL surgery you should have a complete eye examination and talk with your eye care professional about EVO Visian ICL surgery, especially the potential benefits, risks, and complications. You should discuss the time needed for healing after surgery. Complications, although rare, may include need for additional surgical procedures, inflammation, loss of cells from the back surface of the cornea, increase in eye pressure, and cataracts. You should NOT have EVO Visian ICL surgery if your doctor determines that 1) the shape of your eye is not appropriate, 2) you do not meet the minimum endothelial cell density for your age at the time of implantation, 3) you have moderate to severe glaucoma, 4) your vision is not stable; or 5) if you are pregnant or nursing.
