EVO ICL: the game-changer

Cameron's vision problems started in the 5th grade when glasses became a part of her daily life. Later, her reliance on visual aids expanded to contacts, introducing a new set of challenges. For approximately 12 years, Cameron navigated the world through glasses and contacts. "I've been wearing glasses or contacts since I was in the 5th grade. And started to struggle with eye dryness and irritation. As a basketball player, I was constantly losing my contacts during games and practice!" The burden of being nearsighted became an accepted norm… until Cameron learned about the EVO Implantable Collamer® Lenses (EVO ICL).
Cameron's decision to correct her nearsightedness with the EVO ICL procedure was fueled by the desire to break free from the constraints of traditional vision correction methods. With EVO ICL, Cameron's life took a remarkable positive turn. "My life has changed for the better! I don't have to fumble with contacts anymore when I wake up or during the day, and my eyes aren't irritated anymore. Plus, I don't have to worry about losing lenses on the court!"
The differences post-EVO ICL are noticeable. In Cameron's words, "my eyes aren't irritated and dry like they were when I wore contacts. And I love waking up in the morning seeing clearly." Cameron emphasizes the life-changing benefits that extend beyond the basketball court. Choosing EVO ICL was not just about vision correction; it was a lifestyle choice. "The time I save each day! Living a life free of contacts was a huge selling point; as well as the fact that the EVO lens implant is reversible if I ever need it."

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
