EVO Implantable Collamer® Lens

EVO ICL – A LASIK Alternative
EVO is a clinically proven implantable lens that corrects common vision problems such as nearsightedness and nearsightedness with astigmatism, which is the need for distance vision correction. EVO is designed for people who are seeking visual freedom from their glasses or contact lenses and are looking for a different solution to existing vision correction procedures. The EVO procedure is different from other vision correction options, like LASIK, performed by ophthalmologists. EVO is additive; meaning, it is added to the eye and doesn’t remove corneal tissue. The EVO procedure involves implanting (or adding) a biocompatible, flexible lens made from Collamer® into the eye between the iris (colored part of the eye) and the natural lens to correct vision. EVO works in harmony with the natural eye while delivering sharp, clear vision, excellent night vision, built-in UV protection, and does not induce dry eye syndrome. Worldwide, more than 2 million EVO ICL lenses have been implanted.

EVO can permanently correct vision without removing corneal tissue and, if desired, is removable by a doctor for added peace of mind. It gives the patient flexibility for the future while helping to eliminate dependency on glasses and contact lenses now. For more information, visit EVOICL.com.
