Alternative to LASIK: EVO Visian 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 Skyline LASIK, we offer the EVO Visian 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 Visian ICL:

  • Mild to severe nearsightedness or astigmatism
  • Thin corneas
  • History of dry eye
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Corneal irregularities

How the EVO Visian 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 Visian ICL

  • Collamer lens material works in harmony with your eye’s natural chemistry
  • Very little to no dry eye
  • Excellent night vision
  • Provides a layer of UV protection for your eyes
  • Only refractive surgery that can be reversed
  • Procedure takes just 20-30 minutes
  • Results are often immediate
  • Sharper vision compared to LASIK
  • Lens is unnoticeable to others

The procedure itself typically causes very little discomfort and no pain for most patients because the eye is numbed with a topical anesthetic and light anesthesia is given through IV. This surgery is performed at a local ASC (outpatient surgery center) located just a few minutes from our office.
