Our cornea specialists offer EVO ICL™, a vision correction treatment designed to permanently improve your eyesight.
This FDA-approved minimally invasive procedure uses an implantable collamer lens for effective results.

Understanding EVO ICL
EVO ICL, or implantable collamer lens, can correct your vision, offering lifelong healthy sight. The refractive lens augments your natural lens, correcting nearsightedness and astigmatism.
Variations of the ICL have been available for over 20 years. During that time, over 1 million ICLs such as Visian ICL and EVO ICL have been implanted worldwide to fix the functional errors that normally worsen vision.
Patients Choose EVO ICL Over Other Refractive Procedures
Just like LASIK and PRK, EVO ICL lenses have earned FDA approval. That means the efficacy of this treatment has held up after rigorous clinical trials and testing, giving you a treatment you can trust.
They Provide UV Protection
EVO ICL come with built-in UV protection — a perk PRK and LASIK cannot offer. This UV protection can guard against sun damage, protecting your eyes while providing vision correction.
Materials Matter: EVO ICL Uses Collamer
Patients with EVO ICL lenses have their refractive errors corrected by a collamer implantable lens.
Collamer includes collagen (a structural protein), which makes the material biocompatible, which means it won’t cause a reaction with your eye.
The collamer ICL has been proven safe and effective in FDA trials. In addition, the collamer lens is pliable and soft, allowing a comfortable experience.

Vision Correction For Two Specific Conditions
EVO ICL correct two kinds of refractive errors by refocusing light rays. Your ICL can deal with:
Myopia - The ICL makes light reflect directly onto the retina itself as opposed to in front of the retina.
Astigmatism - The ICL makes light reflect onto just one place in the retina rather than multiple points.
If your prescription is stable but fits these categories, you may be a candidate.
