Nearsightedness and astigmatism don’t have to be a part of your life anymore. The Waring Vision Institute offers the EVO Visian ICL–an implantable contact lens that corrects your vision concerns and allows you to see clearly again.

EVO Visian ICL Lens

What is the EVO Visian ICL Lens?

EVO Visian ICL is an Implantable Collamer™ Lens designed to correct myopia (nearsightedness) and astigmatism. The lens is slightly smaller than a contact lens and made from Collamer, which is a biocompatible material. This lens is implanted in the eye with a short surgical procedure. Because the lens doesn’t permanently change the shape of your cornea like other vision correction surgeries, it can be removed and upgraded.

The advantages of EVO Visian ICL

Patients between the ages of 21-45 who suffer from moderate-to-severe nearsightedness (with or without astigmatism) can benefit from the advantages of EVO Visian ICL.

Vision improvement at all distances

With EVO Visian ICL, you may not need glasses anymore. This lens reduces or eliminates the need for contacts or glasses.

High-definition vision

Vision is clearer, sharper, and more vivid, with greater depth and dimension.

Excellent night vision

Night vision and night driving are improved. The EVO Visian ICL lens causes no halos or glare, as is the case with some other vision correction surgeries.

Permanent, yet removable

EVO Visian ICL is designed to permanently correct your vision. However, the lens can be removed for upgrades or replacements if necessary.

Short recovery time

Recovery may be as short as one day, with minimal discomfort. Many patients can return to work or typical activities on the day following their procedure.

UV protection

The EVO Visian ICL lens contains a UV blocker that prevents harmful UVA and UVB rays from entering the eye. UVA and UVB rays can damage the eyes and cause vision problems and other disorders.

What happens during the EVO Visian ICL Lens procedure?

The EVO Visian ICL procedure takes 20 to 30 minutes. Your eyes are numbed with an anesthetic eye drop to ensure you feel no pain during the surgery. Dr. Waring will make a small incision to implant the ICL between your iris (the colored part of your eye) and the natural lens of your eye.

The Visian EVO lens is placed behind your iris, ensuring it is not visible to anyone except for your eye doctor. Dr Waring will schedule a follow-up appointment the same day or the next day after your procedure to ensure your healing is going smoothly and according to plan.

You will not be able to feel the lens as it does not adhere to any structures within your eye. Once it is in place, it will not move.

Recovery after EVO Visian ICL

The recovery period varies from patient to patient, but it is generally quite short. Patients who have had EVO Visian ICL generally recover faster than those who have had laser eye surgery.

After Surgery

Immediately after ICL surgery, and for a day or two afterward, your vision will be slightly blurry, and you may feel some soreness or irritation. This is completely normal and expected, with these effects being mild enough that many ICL patients return to work within 1-2 days after their surgery.

1-2 Days Later

During the first one or two days, avoid digital screens and bright lights, wear sunglasses, and get plenty of rest as your eyes heal. We will also provide an eye drop regimen to follow to help with the recovery process.

Final Recovery

Dr. Waring will follow up with you several times after your procedure to ensure you’re healing well. The first appointment is the same day or the next day after surgery. You will return in another week, then within the next 1-2 months, and finally after 3-6 months. During this period of time, your vision will gradually continue to improve.

Results after EVO Visian ICL

Most patients experience improved vision immediately, experiencing the benefit of sharp, clear vision and excellent night vision. Many patients do not need their glasses or contacts anymore.

However, keep in mind that the EVO Visian ICL corrects for distance vision. This means that at some point you may need to use reading glasses.

The EVO Visian ICL is designed to permanently correct your vision. However, if an upgrade or further correction is needed, it can be removed and improved by Dr. Waring.
