Why You Should Get the EVO ICL this Summer


What’s not to love about summer? The clear waters, blue skies, sandy beaches, and lots of fun in the sun.

But summer is even more fun with sharp, crisp eyesight. With the EVO ICL, clear vision can be your new reality this and every summer. 

Keep reading to learn more about the EVO ICL and the reasons to consider the life-changing refractive implant!

What is the EVO ICL?

EVO ICL (Implantable Collamer Lens) is a small flexible lens designed to treat nearsightedness and astigmatism, providing superior vision correction. It’s made of a biocompatible collamer material that works in harmony with the eye.

EVO ICL works much like a contact lens. It changes how light entering your eye bends and refracts before passing through your natural lens so that it focuses accurately on the retina.

But rather than sit on top of the eye like a contact lens, the EVO ICL is implanted inside. Unlike other vision correction procedures, the EVO ICL doesn’t involve the removal of corneal tissue.

Additionally, it can correct levels of nearsightedness that far exceed LASIK limits. If you’re not a good LASIK candidate because of thin corneas, dry eyes, or severe nearsightedness, the EVO ICL can be a great alternative.

The procedure gives you the chance to experience the same lifestyle benefits that LASIK has brought to millions.

How Does the EVO ICL Improve Vision? 

The EVO ICL is implanted in front of your natural lens and just behind the iris, the colored part of the eye, allowing it to refract or bend light more precisely. As a result, light is able to focus properly on your retina, providing crisp, clear vision.

Because of its position in the eye, the EVO ICL remains invisible to anyone looking at you. The lens is permanently implanted inside the eye.

However, it can be removed should you or your ophthalmologist decide it’s necessary. Knowing that the procedure can be reversed at any time gives many patients peace of mind.

The EVO ICL produces remarkable outcomes. Most patients achieve 20/20 vision or better, eliminating or substantially reducing the need for glasses or contact lenses.

Why Should You Get the EVO ICL this Summer?

Here are a few reasons why summer is the perfect season for the EVO ICL:

Go Swimming

You can beat the summer heat and have lots of fun all at the same time by going swimming. But swimming with glasses or contacts can be a real hassle.

If you decide to swim with your glasses, they can easily get lost in the waves. And if you wear contact lenses in the water, they can trap bacteria, increasing the risk of a serious eye infection.

Keeping your prescription lenses and eyes protected means having to think twice before taking a dip in the pool, lake, or ocean. Imagine being able to dive, swim, and splash at a moment’s notice without taking out your contact lenses or putting away your glasses. EVO ICL makes this possible.

It eliminates or significantly reduces your dependence on corrective lenses. By getting the EVO ICL this summer, you can spend as much time as you want in the water without giving your eyesight a second thought.

Swimming will be much more enjoyable when you can see clearly and don’t have to worry about harming your vision. 

Watch Outdoor Movies

Summer is the perfect time for outdoor movies. There’s something magical and unforgettable about watching movies under the stars, surrounded by nature’s beauty and family or friends.

But no outdoor movie experience is complete without clear vision. With contact lenses, your eyes can become dry and irritated after wearing them the entire day or spending too much time in front of a screen.

One of the most frustrating things about wearing glasses is that they’re easy to lose. Movie time without glasses means blurry vision.

Plus, if you’re nearsighted, you’ll need to find the perfect seat close to the screen to avoid squinting. If you’re watching 3D movies, you have to wear special 3D glasses to fully experience the immersive and lifelike effects of 3D films.

However, fitting them over your regular glasses can be a struggle and uncomfortable.  EVO ICL provides excellent vision day and night. No more stressing about finding misplaced glasses, dry eyes from contacts, wrestling to wear 3D glasses over your eyeglasses, or securing a seat next to the screen.

After getting the EVO ICL, grab some popcorn and drinks and relish the magic of cinema in fresh air without the inconveniences of visual aids. 

S’mores Around a Fire

Lighting a fire and making s’mores can ensure your summer is top-notch. The gooey goodness of roasted marshmallow sandwiched between creamy chocolate and crisp graham crackers makes a delightful dessert that’s hard to resist. 

When you’re enjoying the all-time classic summer treat with family or friends, the last thing you want is your eyesight getting in the way of all the fun. But as the fire crackles and the wind shifts, smoke could get into your eyes and dry out your contacts, leaving your eyes feeling very irritated and dry.

Moreover, contact lenses can trap smoke particles and ash, leading to a sandy feeling or foreign body sensation. You can eliminate these problems by getting the EVO ICL. EVO ICL gives you the ability to see comfortably and clearly.

After your procedure, all you’ll need to do is simply gather around a cozy fire, assemble your s’mores, and bring joy to your taste buds with these utterly delicious treats.

What better way to celebrate your new vision and create memories that will last a lifetime?

Boating with Friends

Do you have plans to go boating with your friends this summer? Boating is a great way to stay cool and relax.

You get to take in the fresh air, feel the wind on your skin, and listen to the waves crashing against the boat while reconnecting with friends. For people with glasses or contacts, boating with them isn’t always the easiest.

You constantly have to worry about the wind drying out your contacts or wet, blurry glasses obstructing your vision. EVO ICL takes away the need for visual aids, enabling you to be more carefree.

You’ll enjoy the breeze on your face without your contact lenses drying out or your glasses getting wet or flying off. When you don’t have to deal with cumbersome eyewear, you can grab a cold drink, bond with friends, and have the summer of your life.
