How the EVO Visian ICL Corrects Nearsightedness and Astigmatism

EVO Visian ICL functions to focus light properly back onto the retina in a similar way glasses and contacts lenses do. The EVO Visian ICL is placed into a space of the eye directly behind the iris (the colored part of the eye) and in front of the natural lens. In this position, the EVO Visian ICL functions to focus light properly onto the retina helping create clear distance vision.

3. Lens Insertion:

To prepare for the implant your doctor will create one small opening at the base of your cornea to insert the EVO Visian ICL. The procedure is painless because of the numbing medication.
