If you’re considering a vision correction procedure, why not consider the EVO Visian ICL? Most vision correction surgeries like LASIK and PRK use a laser to permanently change the shape of your cornea to correct a refractive error.
But the EVO Visian ICL is different because it implants a lens inside your eye. It’s a minimally invasive procedure that’s also reversible. You’ll never need to remove the EVO Visian ICL, but you can if you ever change your mind.
No other vision correction procedure provides patients with that kind of peace of mind! The EVO Visian ICL isn’t just an easy procedure to undergo, either.
It also gives you incredibly crisp and clear vision, meaning you’ll no longer need glasses or contact lenses to see. Keep reading to learn about 5 ways the EVO Visian ICL improves your vision and changes your life!
1. Clear Vision
The ICL in the name EVO Visian ICL stands for Implantable Collamer Lens. An implantable collamer lens is an implant placed inside your eye during surgery.
This lens functions much like a regular contact lens, changing how light refracts through your eye before passing through your eye’s natural lens. But instead of sitting on top of your eye like a contact, it sits behind your iris and in front of the natural lens.
The EVO Visian ICL can only correct nearsightedness and mild astigmatism. It cannot correct farsightedness.
However, a lot of patients suffer from nearsightedness or astigmatism, making EVO ICL a worthy contender. Most patients that choose the EVO Visian ICL achieve 20/20 vision or better, meaning it helps you see significantly better than you could when you depended on glasses and contact lenses.
2. Better Vision Than Contact Lenses
The EVO Visian ICL can give you better vision than regular glasses and contact lenses. This is because the ICL itself is more powerful than contact lenses.
Although it may work in a way that’s like a contact lens, the implantable collamer lens is not an actual contact lens. It is meant to be permanently implanted in the eye to provide vision correction, which a contact lens cannot achieve.
If you’re highly nearsighted, the EVO Visian ICL may be the only vision correction procedure able to fully correct your vision. Laser surgeries like LASIK can only correct up to -12.00 diopters. But the EVO Visian ICL can correct up to -23.00 diopters! With that capability, far more people can achieve the vision of their dreams.
3. Sharp Vision Night and Day
Patients who get the EVO Visian ICL can look forward to seeing well in daylight and at night. One issue that sometimes occurs with traditional laser procedures is that patients can experience visual aberrations at night, like glare, halos, and starbursts.
While these complications are rare, they’re even rarer for EVO Visian ICL patients. The ICL gives patients the ability to see clearly in low light.
When you get EVO Visian ICL, you can rest easy knowing that your vision will be fantastic 24/7! Enjoy a late-night movie night on your outdoor projector or get in a quick surf at the crack of dawn while knowing that your vision will always be on point!
4. Built-In UV Protection
Another massive advantage of the EVO Visian ICL over laser eye procedures is that the ICL has built-in UV protection. The ICL is designed to block out harmful UV rays. Knowing you have protection from the sun’s rays keeps your eyes safe from UV radiation’s short- and long-term effects.
UV rays can be extremely harmful to your vision. They can dry out and even burn your eyes in the short term.
In the long term, they can increase your risk for age-related eye conditions, including cataracts, glaucoma, and even eye cancer. The best way to keep your eyes safe is to wear sunglasses whenever you’re outside.
Even if you get the EVO Visian ICL, you should continue to wear sunglasses. But having the EVO ICLs in your eyes will still give you added protection against UV light, lowering your risk for the various visual issues associated with UV exposure.
In short, the EVO Visian ICL will help you keep your incredible vision for years and years to come!
5. Years and Years of Crisp Vision
One advantage that draws many people to the EVO Visian ICL is the fact that it’s reversible. Choose to remove the EVO ICL at any time with a simple procedure similar to the initial surgery.
Knowing this gives some patients peace of mind, knowing they can change their minds after surgery. But most patients never want to reverse the procedure. Moreover, you do not need to remove the ICL. It can safely stay in your eye for the rest of your life.
Before you can have any vision correction procedures, you need to have a stable prescription. A stable prescription ensures that your vision won’t change after surgery and the effects of correcting your vision will remain effective.
The EVO Visian ICL is no different. As long as you qualify as a good candidate, the EVO ICL will help you see clearly for years and years, giving you freedom from glasses and contact lenses.
Now, no vision correction procedure can prevent age-related vision loss. But because the ICL is removable, it’s very convenient if you ever have cataract surgery.
Cataract surgery replaces your natural lens with an intraocular lens (IOL) that can help you see better by correcting your presbyopia and any existing refractive error. If you have cataract surgery, your ICL can be easily removed during surgery, as you won’t need it when you get an IOL.
But most people don’t need cataract surgery until much later in life. If you have the EVO Visian ICL while you’re still a young adult, you can look forward to decades of clear, unassisted vision!
