At Florida Eye Specialists, we’re proud to offer all types of vision correction options for every patient, from LASIK to PRK and the latest EVO Visian ICL. EVO can help you achieve sharp, clear vision that gives you the freedom to see the world without glasses or contacts. It is an implantable collamer lens used to correct vision without lasers. If you are not a candidate for LASIK but having great eyesight without the use of contacts or glasses is crucial to you, this may be the perfect solution.
Is the EVO Visian ICL Right for You?
The EVO Visian ICL is soft and flexible, so you won’t even know it’s there—other than the fact that you have great vision. EVO could be right for you if:
- You’ve had the same prescription for over a year
- You’re nearsighted
- You have astigmatism
- You’re between 21 and 45 years old
- Your prescription is between -3 and -20 diopters
- You have severe chronic dry eye
- You have thin corneas
- You’d prefer a reversible procedure
About the EVO Visian ICL Procedure
The EVO Visian ICL lens is slightly smaller than a typical contact lens and is implanted in the eye to improve vision. Similar to adding a lens to a camera, EVO works with the natural parts of your eye to improve your vision so you can see the world.
Unlike LASIK and other laser procedures, using an ICL procedure does not reshape the corneas of your eyes. That means it is completely reversible if needed for total peace of mind. It also does not cause or worsen dry eye disease.
The EVO procedure is minimally invasive and the lens is implanted through a small opening, allowing for a quick procedure and recovery time. The procedure only takes about 20 minutes and recovery is often no more than one day.
Even though the procedure is newly approved in the US, over two million EVO lenses have already been used to help correct vision around the world.
Other Visian ICL lenses have been in use for decades, and this procedure has a 99 percent satisfaction rate among patients. Give our office a call at 904-864-2020, and our doctors will be happy to answer any questions you may have about this exciting new procedure.
