What Is an ICL?

An ICL, or implantable collamer lens, is a type of lens that your eye doctor can place into your eyes to correct nearsightedness or nearsightedness with astigmatism. It is typically made of a soft, flexible material and is inserted through a small incision in the eye.

An ICL is a permanent implant that does not require to be removed or replaced but can be if needed. ICL surgery may be an option for people who are not candidates for certain laser vision correction procedures, like LASIK or PRK.

The procedure is typically performed on an outpatient basis, meaning that you have the procedure, and then you are able to go home the same day. Most people can return to normal activities within a few days of the surgery.

ICL surgery is considered to be a safe and effective way to correct your natural refractive error and improve visual freedom.

Patients who have thin corneas or experience routine dry eyes who have been told they are not a candidate for LASIK or PRK might just be eligible for the EVO ICL vision correction procedure. Call us to find out more.

What Is the EVO ICL?

The EVO ICL is a type of ICL that offers many benefits and can allow you to be less dependent on visual aids. The EVO is made of a biocompatible material called collamer.

This material is a unique blend of polymer and collagen that is well-tolerated by the eye and has a low risk of causing inflammation or other side effects. Since collamer is highly biocompatible, it is unlikely to be rejected by the body after it is implanted.

The EVO ICL can only correct vision in those who are nearsighted or who have nearsightedness with astigmatism. For this reason, if you have a different type of refractive error, like farsightedness, your eye doctor may recommend an alternative procedure to accomplish your vision goals.

Before you can schedule ICL surgery with the EVO ICL, you must first qualify as a candidate for the procedure. To determine if you are a candidate for the EVO ICL, schedule an evaluation with your eye doctor at Cheema MD Eye Care.

Who Is a Good Candidate for the EVO ICL?

The only way to know for sure if you are a candidate for the EVO ICL is to visit your eye doctor at Cheema MD Eye Care for an evaluation. In order to determine if you are a good candidate, they will ask you many questions about your health, including any health conditions you have or medications you are currently taking.

In general, a good candidate for the EVO ICL will be someone who has stable vision and is in good overall health. It is typically recommended for people who are at least twenty-one years old and under the age of forty-five.

There are also certain medical conditions or circumstances that cause someone to not be a good candidate for the EVO ICL. For example, people with certain eye conditions may not be good candidates for the procedure.

In addition to gathering information about you and your health, your eye doctor at Cheema MD will also thoroughly evaluate your eyes at your consultation. During this evaluation, they will test your vision, take measurements of your eyes, and perform a complete examination of your eyes using a special microscope.

If you are nearsighted and are in good general health, it is likely that you will be a good candidate for the EVO ICL. Once your eye doctor determines that you are a good candidate for the procedure, you will be able to schedule it right away.

What Are the Benefits of the EVO ICL?

There are numerous benefits to choosing the EVO ICL. First and foremost, it can provide you with improved vision and reduced reliance on visual aids like glasses and contact lenses.

Here are a few more benefits of choosing the EVO ICL for vision correction:

The entire procedure typically takes around thirty minutes to complete, and most people are able to return to their normal activities within a few days of the procedure.

The EVO ICL has a very high success rate, with a large majority of patients experiencing significant improvements in their vision after the procedure.

The EVO ICL is a permanent implant. Although it can be removed if needed, most people who choose this ICL will experience long-lasting results after the procedure.

The EVO ICL procedure is minimally invasive, with only a small incision necessary to insert the lens. This means a faster procedure and quicker recovery time.

The technology of the EVO ICL allows you to skip an additional laser procedure called an LPI, or laser peripheral iridotomy, that’s required by other types of ICLs. This procedure is necessary with other ICLs in order to help prevent a spike in eye pressure after the procedure.

However, thanks to the advanced technology of the EVO ICL, you get to skip this step and go straight to ICL surgery.

What Happens During Surgery With the EVO ICL?

Before ICL surgery with the EVO ICL, your eye doctor will numb the surface of your eyes with drops. You will be awake during the entire procedure, which should take about thirty minutes to complete.

First, your eye surgeon will make a small opening in the cornea, which is the clear dome at the front of your eye. Then, they will insert the EVO ICL and position it properly.

Once in place, the EVO ICL will rest comfortably between your eye’s natural lens and the iris, which is the colored part of your eye. In this spot, it will not be visible to other people when they are looking at you.

After the procedure, your eye doctor may give you some eye drops to help prevent infection and inflammation. It is very important that you use these drops as instructed and not miss any doses.
