The EVO Visian ICL is a state-of-the-art implantable lens that offers clear vision and a range of benefits for those who are not ideal candidates for LASIK or PRK. At NY Vision Group, we are proud to offer this innovative solution to our patients who desire an alternative to glasses or contact lenses.
What is the EVO Visian ICL?
The EVO Visian ICL is a type of vision correction surgery that involves implanting a tiny, biocompatible lens in front of the natural lens of the eye. ICLs, also known as Implantable Collamer Lenses, are designed to be tolerated well by the body and provide clear vision.
The EVO Visian ICL is a new and advanced type of ICL with numerous advantages. However, the EVO Visian ICL can only correct nearsightedness or nearsightedness with astigmatism.
For those with these kinds of refractive errors, the EVO Visian ICL can significantly reduce their dependence on visual aids and increase their visual freedom.
How Does the EVO Visian ICL Work?
During the EVO Visian ICL procedure, a small incision is made in the cornea, the clear front part of the eye. Then, the folded lens is inserted into the eye.
After it’s placed in the eye, your eye surgeon will position it behind the iris and in front of the eye’s natural lens. Once in place, the EVO Visian ICL helps focus the light that enters your eye, similar to how glasses and contact lenses do.
When you have a refractive error, the light that enters your eye does not land directly on the retina, which results in blurry vision. Visual aids like contact lenses and glasses temporarily correct this focus by directing the light to land on the retina while you are wearing them.
The EVO Visian ICL is a lens that operates similarly. However, it is able to permanently correct your refractive error, which means you are able to have greater freedom from the restraints of visual aids.
Am I a Good Candidate for the EVO Visian ICL?
The only way to determine whether or not you may be a good candidate for the EVO Visian ICL is to schedule an evaluation with the experienced eye doctors at NY Vision Group in Brooklyn, New York. To determine whether or not the EVO Visian ICL suits you, your eye doctor will consider several factors.
Age is an important factor, as the procedure is typically recommended for individuals between the ages of twenty-one and forty-five. If you are farsighted or have a different refractive error, your eye doctor may recommend an alternate procedure to help accomplish your vision goals.
It is also essential that you have healthy eyes with no conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, or severe dry eye. Women who are pregnant or nursing are not typically good candidates for the EVO Visian ICL, as hormonal changes can affect vision.
What Are the Benefits of the EVO Visian ICL?
One of the main benefits of the EVO Visian ICL is that it provides clear vision without the need for glasses or traditional contact lenses. Another benefit of the EVO Visian ICL is that it is a safe and effective option for people who may not be suitable candidates for LASIK or other types of laser eye surgery.
Because the ICL is implanted inside the eye, rather than removing tissue from the cornea, you are also less likely to experience dry eye after the procedure. If you need to have the ICL removed later, the effects of the procedure are reversible.
This is not possible with most other types of refractive surgeries like LASIK and PRK. The EVO Visian ICL can be tailored to the individual needs of each person, which can result in better visual outcomes and a higher level of patient satisfaction.
It is also designed to provide excellent night vision, with reduced glare and halos compared to other types of corrective lenses. This can be particularly important for people who drive or work at night, as it can help to improve safety and reduce the risk of accidents.
The EVO Visian ICL offers a range of benefits for people with refractive errors who are looking for a safe, effective, and customizable solution for clear vision.
