Will I be able to feel the EVO ICL™ Lens?

< Back to FAQ

No, you should not feel the EVO ICL™ lens once it has been implanted inside your eye. The EVO ICL™ is designed to be a biocompatible and flexible implant that is placed inside the eye to correct nearsightedness and astigmatism. Because of its unique properties, the EVO ICL™ is not typically felt by the patient once it has been implanted.

During the procedure, the EVO ICL™ is carefully placed in the space between the iris and the natural lens of the eye, where it stays in place without any need for sutures or other fixation techniques. Once the lens has been implanted, patients typically experience improved vision without any discomfort or awareness of the lens inside the eye.

As with any surgery, some patients may experience temporary discomfort or sensitivity following the procedure due to the openings that are made. These symptoms are typically mild and can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers and lubricating eye drops, and usually resolve within a few days.

If you have or have questions about the EVO ICL™ procedure, what to expect during and after the surgery, be sure to discuss these with Dr. Sandy T. Feldman during your consultation. She and her team can help you determine whether the EVO ICL™ is the right choice for your vision correction needs. We are happy to speak with you so feel welcome to call with any questions you may have.
