Boise's Leading ICL Surgery for Myopia and Astigmatism

EVO VISIAN ICL (Implantable Collamer Lens)

What is an Evo Visian ICL?

The EVO Visian ICL is refractive lens implant that can correct myopia and astigmatism. Unlike LASIK or PRK, ICL surgery does not remove any corneal tissue. The ICL functions similar to a contact lens and is implant in front of the eye’s natural lens but behind the iris so that it is practically invisible to outside observers.

Who is eligible?

Ideal candidates for EVO Visian ICL are ages 21 to 45 with nearsightedness with or without astigmatism and have maintained a stable prescription for at least one year. Having ICL surgery can save thousands of dollars in glasses and contact lenses cost over your lifetime. Schedule a consultation to discuss if EVO Visian ICL is right for you.

The EVO Visian ICL Procedure

EVO Visian ICL is made of biocompatible Collamer material that works in harmony with your eye. Your eye doctor will create a small opening in your cornea, used to insert and position the EVO Visian ICL. The procedure is virtually painless for most patients with numbing drops, and it typically takes less than 20 – 30 minutes. In addition, patients usually experience improved vision right away and a quick recovery time.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you have severe myopia (nearsightedness) EVO ICL may provide you better visual outcomes and acuity than LASIK. A detailed eye examination is needed to find out if ICLs are appropriate for you.
The procedure takes about 15 minutes and the results are rapid. A tiny incision is created at the base of the cornea. The lens is folded and inserted through the incision and positioned in the eye behind the iris where it is not visible.
Because the ICL corrects for distance vision, it does not eliminate the need for reading glasses if you develop presbyopia (vision after 40) this occurs whether you’ve had ICLs or not.
EVO ICL has been implanted for many years around the world. According to a STAAR patient survey, 99.4% of patients would have the EVO procedure again. Over 1,000,000 EVO ICL lenses have been implanted worldwide. The FDA has confirmed the EVO ICL is a safe and effective treatment for U.S patients.
