Are you tired of depending on glasses and contact lenses to see clearly? It’s time to consider vision correction options!

If you don’t qualify for a laser vision correction procedure like LASIK, it doesn’t have to mean the end of your dreams of visual freedom. Keep reading to learn why the EVO ICL changes your life and your vision! 

What is the EVO ICL?

The EVO ICL is an additive lens that corrects nearsightedness and astigmatism in qualified patients. The EVO ICL comes from a material derived from collagen, making it uniquely biocompatible with the natural harmony of the chemistry of your eyes.

It works because it’s inserted between your iris and natural lens to correct these refractive errors. However, unlike laser vision correction procedures like LASIK and SMILE, the EVO ICL can be removed and is reversible.

What Makes the EVO ICL Different from Other Vision Correction Procedures?  

While laser eye procedures like LASIK involve permanently reshaping the cornea and removing tissue to correct refractive errors, the EVO ICL leaves the anatomy of the eye untouched. Rather than reshaping the cornea, the EVO ICL is an additive lens implanted in the eye during a minimally invasive procedure. 

A small incision is used to unfurl the EVO ICL in the eye and position it as necessary. One benefit of the EVO ICL is that it’s extremely well-suited to patients with dry eyes. Because it works harmoniously with the eye’s natural chemistry, it’s far less likely to cause dry eyes or other detrimental side effects. 

The EVO ICL also provides patients with better night vision, improved contrast, depth perception, and enhanced vision than was possible depending on visual aids. 

The EVO ICL is Reversible and Removable

One significant advantage that sets the EVO ICL apart is it’s both reversible and removable. The EVO ICL is the only removable vision correction procedure.

Being removable means that if your vision needs change and evolve as you get older, you can remove the EVO ICL and replace it with something like an IOL during cataract surgery. This option empowers patients and ensures that they can do what’s best for them no matter what happens to their vision. 

The EVO ICL is also the only reversible vision correction procedure. The option to reverse the EVO ICL puts the power of choice in the patient’s hands. Although the EVO ICL is meant to be a permanent method of vision correction, knowing it’s reversible gives patients peace of mind. 

The EVO ICL is Well Suited for Nearsightedness and Astigmatism

If you’re nearsighted and have astigmatism, it may feel like your options for vision correction are limited. LASIK can treat nearsighted patients, but you must fit the treatment guidelines. 

You won’t be a good LASIK candidate if your prescription is too strong. However, the EVO ICL is incredibly well-suited to patients with moderate to severe nearsightedness who may not qualify for LASIK. 

The EVO ICL may be the best vision correction procedure since it can correct up to 20 diopters of nearsightedness. Additionally, EVO ICL does not sever nerves in the cornea as LASIK does. 

Severing these nerves often leads to chronic dry eye symptoms after LASIK. Because the EVO ICL is a laser-free procedure, it’s tailored to protect the eye’s delicate structures. 

The procedure offers patients excellent visual quality and a life of crisp, clear vision, which may not have been possible if they were considering LASIK.

Achieve Better Vision with the EVO ICL than with Visual Aids 

Although glasses and contacts seem like simple solutions, choosing these visual aids may mean not achieving the clear vision you deserve. With the EVO ICL, you can enjoy better vision than you’d have with glasses or contact lenses if you’re nearsighted with astigmatism. 

Patients who chose the EVO ICL noted higher satisfaction than they had with glasses and contact lenses. You can also look forward to better vision without visual disturbances like glare, halos, and starbursts with the EVO ICL. If you’re ready for vision without boundaries, it’s time to consider the EVO ICL. 

See Clearly and Do the Things You Love Most   

Seeing clearly is a must to do anything in life, but it stands in the way of experiencing life’s adventures if you can’t see well. Choosing to undergo a procedure like the EVO ICL means investing in yourself and your eyes. 

When you don’t have to depend on visual aids, all you have to do is wake up and go. You’ll no longer have the burdens of glasses and contact lenses hanging over you. 

Whether you’re an athlete, looking to make a career change, or dreaming of moving somewhere new, improving your vision can help you achieve your goals. The EVO ICL is incredibly attractive to potential patients because of its quick and easy recovery period. 

You don’t have to worry about spending days in bed after the procedure or losing weeks of your life waiting for your sight to stabilize. Instead, in a matter of days, you can return to the things you love, whether being out on the golf course, shooting photos of your dog, or camping in the woods. 

But the best part of these activities is that after you have the EVO ICL, you can do them and see better—no more glasses or contact lenses to hold you back. Instead, you can wake up and see.
