Alternative to LASIK: EVO ICL™
Sometimes LASIK isn’t the best option for vision correction because it involves the removal of corneal tissue to alter the shape of the cornea. Implantable Collamer® Lenses (ICLs) are another way to achieve sharp vision by inserting biocompatible lenses into your eyes that can be removed in the future if necessary.
At Atwal Eye Care, we offer the EVO ICL™ made by STAAR Surgical. We take time to fully assess your eye health to determine which type of procedure will produce the best vision results. If your eyes meet any of these criteria, we may recommend the EVO ICL:
How the EVO ICL Works
Made from biocompatible Collamer®, this lens is implanted into your eye through one tiny corneal incision. The lens allows light entering the eye to focus on the retina for clear vision. Even though the lens will be invisible to others, it can make your vision sharper and more vivid. Some patients will see more clearly immediately after the procedure is performed.
Benefits of EVO ICL
The procedure itself typically causes very little discomfort and no pain for most patients because the eye is numbed with a topical or local anesthetic prior to the procedure. It is performed in our office as an outpatient procedure.
