After selecting a doctor, it’s time to schedule your in-person consultation.


Before scheduling your procedure, your doctor will need to confirm that EVO ICL is a good option for you by performing a series of standard tests to measure your eye’s unique characteristics. Your doctor will also discuss cost and educate you about benefits, risks and what to expect both during and after the procedure.

Getting Your EVO ICLs is as quick or faster than watching an episode of your favorite binge-worthy series.


Preparation

When you arrive for your procedure, your doctor will administer eye drops to dilate your pupils as well as anesthetize your eyes for a painless experience. The procedure is painless because of the numbing medication.

Small Opening

To prepare for the implant your doctor will create one small opening 
at the base of your cornea to insert the EVO ICL lens.

Lens Insertion & Positioning

The EVO ICL lens then can be folded and inserted through the small incision that was made. Once the lens is inserted the doctor will make any necessary adjustments to ensure proper positioning in the eye.

Frequently Asked Questions

EVO ICL and LASIK costs vary depending on various factors that may include your prescription, location and provider. Upon consultation with an EVO ICL doctor, they will provide you with your specific cost, financing options and payment plans.

On average, contact lenses cost $12,000 over a lifetime.* Your personal cost will vary.

Because EVO ICL lenses are a long-term solution, your procedure costs are generally fixed to a one-time fee. When you compare with the long-term costs of contact lenses, the EVO ICL procedure typically pays for itself.

*Popular daily disposable contacts, on average, cost about $600 a year. So over 20 years, a patient will spend $12,000 on contact lenses.

The EVO ICL Lens (EVO) 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.

EVO ICL represents an alternative to other refractive surgeries including laser assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK), photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), incisional surgeries, or other means to correct myopia such as contact lenses and eyeglasses.

EVO ICL is intended to remain in place without maintenance. EVO ICL can be removed by your eye care professional if needed in the future. If your physician removes the EVO ICL lens, you will lose the benefit of your nearsightedness correction.

Important Safety Information

The EVO Visian ICL Lens is intended for the correction of moderate to high nearsightedness. EVO Visian ICL and EVO Visian 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 Visian ICL surgery may improve your distance vision without eyeglasses or contact lenses. Because the EVO Visian 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 Visian 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 Visian ICL surgery if:

  • Your doctor determines that the shape of your eye is not an appropriate fit for the EVO Visian 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 Visian ICL surgery you should have a complete eye examination and talk with your eye care professional about EVO Visian 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.
