EVO Visian ICL - An Evolution in Visual Freedom
The EVO Visian ICL (EVO), or commonly referred to as the “implantable contact lens”, is the next generation of vision correction that’s still the hidden gem of the eyecare world. With over 1,000,000 lenses implanted worldwide, this best-kept secret is ready to make its debut next to other traditional eye procedures.
A 3 year study was conducted after the EVO ICL lenses were implanted in 92 patients and yielded overall stable results throughout the follow-up period. This indicated that the lens were predictable, stable, safe, and effective to correct myopia in the long term. Those who qualified for the EVO ICL procedure were between the ages of 21 and 45 years old and had myopia from -3D to -20D.
What Are EVO+ Visian ICL (EVO+) Lenses - The EVO+ ICL
The EVO+ ICL was recently approved by the FDA, giving more options to patients who seek a vision correction option.
The EVO+ ICL can treat those who:
- Are between the ages of 21 and 45 years
- Have astigmatism up to -4D
- Have myopia, or nearsightedness, between -3D to -15D
A study done from 2009 - 2013 at the University of Toronto Medical School examined 44 patients who received the EVO ICL and EVO+ ICL. 36 of the 44 patients opted to receive the toric lenses to treat both their astigmatism and myopia. Over the 14 month study, over half the patients reported that they achieved 20/20 vision for both the EVO ICL lens and EVO+ ICL lens.

Important Safety Information
The EVO ICL Lens is intended for the correction of moderate to high nearsightedness. EVO ICL and EVO TICL surgery is intended to safely and effectively correct nearsightedness between -3.0 D to -15.0 D, the reduction in nearsightedness up to -20.0 D and treatment of astigmatism from 1.0 D to 4.0 D. If you have nearsightedness within these ranges, EVO ICL surgery may improve your distance vision without eyeglasses or contact lenses. Because the EVO ICL corrects for distance vision, it does not eliminate the need for reading glasses, you may require them at some point, even if you have never worn them before.
Implantation of the EVO ICL is a surgical procedure, and as such, carries potentially serious risks. Please discuss the risks with your eye care professional. Complications, although rare, may include need for additional surgical procedures, inflammation, loss of cells from the back surface of the cornea, increase in eye pressure, and cataracts.
You should NOT have EVO ICL surgery if:
- Your doctor determines that the shape of your eye is not an appropriate fit for the EVO ICL
- You are pregnant or nursing
- You have moderate to severe damage to the optic nerve caused by increased pressure (glaucoma)
- You do not meet the minimum endothelial cell density for your age at the time of implantation as determined by your eye doctor
- Your vision is not stable as determined by your eye doctor
Before considering EVO ICL surgery you should have a complete eye examination and talk with your eye care professional about EVO ICL surgery, especially the potential benefits, risks, and complications. You should discuss the time needed for healing after surgery. For additional information with potential benefits, risks and complications please visit DiscoverICL.com
