Are you considering a vision correction procedure but only familiar with LASIK? While LASIK is a popular option, it’s not the only one available. The EVO Visian ICL is another effective procedure that you may not have heard of before. With excellent results, it’s worth considering as an alternative to LASIK.
What is the EVO Visian ICL?
The EVO Visian ICL is a type of implantable contact lens that can correct a wide range of vision problems, including myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. Unlike traditional contact lenses that sit on the surface of the eye, the EVO Visian ICL is surgically implanted into the eye to provide permanent vision correction.
One of the biggest benefits of the EVO Visian ICL is its ability to correct high degrees of refractive error. This means that even if you have a very strong prescription, the EVO Visian ICL may be a viable option for you. Additionally, the EVO Visian ICL is completely invisible once implanted, so you don’t have to worry about anyone noticing that you’ve had vision correction surgery.
Collamer is a unique material that contains collagen which means the lens is made to naturally be in harmony with your eye.
No Dry Eye Syndrome
By not removing and reshaping the corneal tissue, the Visian ICL procedure does not induce dry eye syndrome.
In the event of a major prescription change or the availability of new vision correction options, EVO Visian ICL is completely removable.
In a clinical study, the Visian ICL provided excellent night vision.
So, how does the EVO Visian ICL procedure work?
It’s actually quite simple. First, your surgeon will make a small incision in your cornea to create a space for the lens. Then, the EVO Visian ICL is inserted through the incision and positioned in front of your natural lens. The procedure typically takes less than 30 minutes and is performed under local anesthesia.
After the procedure, you may experience some discomfort or light sensitivity for a few days, but this should subside quickly. You’ll also need to attend follow-up appointments with your surgeon to ensure that your eye is healing properly and your vision is improving.
Overall, the EVO Visian ICL is a safe and effective option for vision correction. It can provide permanent vision correction for a wide range of refractive errors, and the procedure is minimally invasive and relatively quick. If you’re interested in the EVO Visian ICL, be sure to speak with an experienced eye surgeon who can provide personalized recommendations based on your individual needs and goals.
