Max Strus' struggle with glasses and contacts
Max Strus struggled with glasses and contacts since the 5th grade. Growing up, his whole family wore glasses and contacts. When Max was traveling for games and on the court, he hated having to worry about his contact lenses possibly popping out. He also suffers from seasonal allergies, so when they would flare up it was even harder to wear contact lenses.
Getting EVO helped Max see life clearly again - without all the hassles of contacts and glasses.
Why Max Strus chose the EVO ICL lens (EVO)
"This decision of getting EVO has been close to my heart because it has been so life changing for me. EVO appealed to me because I liked that it was a quick procedure with little down time for me and that it doesn’t cause Dry Eye Syndrome. Dry eyes can be a big problem for me during training, on the court during a game, and when I’m traveling. And I liked that should I ever want to, the EVO lens can be removable by a doctor for added peace of mind." - Max Strus

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.
