What are the Benefits of the EVO ICL™?

< Back to FAQ

The EVO ICL™ offers a number of benefits to consider when deciding which vision correction procedure is right for you including:

  1. Sharp, clear vision 1
  2. Excellent night vision 2
  3. Does not usually cause dry eye syndrome 3
  4. Short surgery recovery times
  5. Does not remove corneal tissue
  6. Removable by your doctor
  7. Built in protection from UV rays.


Because the lens is implanted within the eye, it usually does not suffer from the same potential for displacement, movement, or discomfort as contact lenses on the surface of the eye. This means that patients can enjoy stable, long-term vision correction without the need for frequent adjustments or replacements.

The EVO ICL offers sharp clear vision3 during the day and also at night4-6.

Another advantage of the EVO ICL™ is its biocompatibility. The collamer material used in the lens is well-tolerated by the body, reducing the risk of inflammation, infection, or other complications following surgery. The EVO ICL™ also preserves the cornea, which can be particularly beneficial for patients with thin corneas or those who may not be good candidates for LASIK.

The lens also includes a built-in UV filter, helping to protect the eyes from damage caused by the sun's rays. Patients who choose the EVO ICL™ can enjoy improved vision, greater comfort, and low risk of complications.
