3 Reasons the EVO ICL Will Give You Better Vision

February 21, 2024

Do you have refractive errors requiring you to use visual aids to see clearly? Having visual problems impacts every aspect of your life.

Wearing glasses or contacts can be an excellent solution, but you still have to remember to wear them and make sure you don't lose them, which can be inconvenient. Many people want a more permanent solution that improves their quality of life.

Although LASIK is the most well-known vision correction procedure, not everyone will be a good candidate. The good news is that it's not the only way to correct and improve your vision.

If you're not a candidate for LASIK or want a reversible option, the EVO ICL is worth considering. Keep reading to learn about 3 reasons the EVO ICL will give you better vision and change your life!

What is the EVO ICL?

The EVO ICL is a refractive lens implant that corrects nearsightedness and astigmatism. The EVO ICL is a minimally invasive procedure. The additive lens is implanted in your eye with a small incision to improve your ability to see clearly.

Although most vision correction procedures like LASIK require removing tissue from the cornea, the EVO ICL differs. It does not require removing any tissue from the cornea, which is what happens during LASIK.

It also doesn't involve removing the natural lens from the eye, which is the case with cataract surgery and refractive lens exchange. Instead, it is an additive lens placed behind the iris and in front of your natural lens.

With this advanced, next-generation eye corrective technology, you get vision correction without removing any part of your natural eye.

How Does the EVO ICL Work?

The cornea is the outermost layer of tissue in your eye. It can become cloudy or damaged due to age, genetics, and other reasons.

With the EVO ICL, you'll have a small lens added to your eye between the iris and the lens. It acts similarly to a contact by correcting nearsightedness and astigmatism.

However, unlike a contact lens, you do not have to remove the EVO ICL, making it a more permanent option for vision correction. The good news is that your eye doctor can remove the EVO ICL if needed.

Top Reasons the EVO ICL Improves Eyesight

The EVO ICL is a lens made of plastic and collamer, making it biocompatible and in harmony with your eye's natural chemistry. Your Whitten Laser Eye surgeon will place it in your eye to improve your vision and help you achieve visual freedom from glasses and contact lenses.

Are you wondering if the EVO ICL could be right for you? Here are three reasons the additive lens improves your eyesight and changes your life:

Reason 1: Improves Nearsightedness and Astigmatism

If you're nearsighted, you'll find seeing things at a distance more challenging. With astigmatism, you have difficulties seeing clearly at any distance, as imperfections in your cornea cause blurry vision.

Once you choose the EVO ICL, you can look forward to clearer vision because it corrects nearsightedness and astigmatism. With the EVO ICL, you'll see more clearly all around if you have astigmatism and see at a distance more clearly if you're nearsighted.

Whether you're playing basketball, running errands while driving around town, or need to see the score while cheering on your favorite team, the EVO ICL will make these activities better.

Reason 2: Comes with a Built-In UV Light Filter

Having the EVO ICL implanted in your eye is minimally invasive. It's an artificial additive lens crafted to fit perfectly into your eye.

Another significant advantage of this lens is that it is already equipped with a UV light filter. A built-in UV light filter means the EVO ICL blocks UV rays from the sun, protecting your eye from sun damage.

Although you should always wear sunglasses with adequate UV protection, having extra protection from the EVO ICL will ensure your eyes are safe no matter where you are.

Reason 3: Improves Your Vision in All Lighting Conditions

Another reason the EVO ICl improves your vision is that it helps you see better in all lighting conditions. You'll be able to see more clearly in dim light and bright light.

Choosing the EVO ICL can make activities like driving, reading, and socializing with your friends much easier. The EVO ICL can improve your quality of life with increased daytime and nighttime vision.

Why is EVO ICL a Good Option For Many Patients?

EVO ICL is a very effective procedure. Around 95% of patients who choose the EVO ICL report being satisfied or very satisfied with their results after undergoing it.

There are many potential benefits to choosing the EVO ICL, like:

You Can Be a Good EVO ICL Candidate Even if You're Not a Suitable LASIK Candidate

Some patients can't get LASIK due to certain eye conditions. However, you may be a better candidate for a procedure like the EVO ICL, even if you have eye conditions like dry eye syndrome, which means you may not qualify for LASIK.

The EVO ICL is Reversible

In addition to providing patients with long-lasting results, the EVO ICL is also removable. Having the option to remove the EVO ICL provides patients with peace of mind regarding their vision correction options. Other procedures like LASIK are permanent and cannot be reversed.

The EVO ICL Provides Patients with Long-Lasting Results

The EVO ICL is meant to be a permanent procedure and provides patients with long-lasting results. However, if you change your mind or need to have it removed during a procedure like refractive lens exchange or cataract surgery, you can do so without damaging your vision. 

The EVO ICL is an Excellent Option for Athletes

If you're a student or professional athlete, you may find that having issues with your vision makes it challenging to play sports. But choosing a procedure like the EVO ICL can improve your vision, helping you see clearly on and off the court.

The EVO ICL Helps You Achieve Visual Freedom from Glasses or Contacts

Most patients who choose the EVO ICL find that they no longer need to rely on visual aids like glasses and contact lenses. If you're ready to see better than ever, the EVO ICL is here to change your life and your vision.
