The EVO ICL™ implantation procedure involves several steps to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the treatment for you. Before the procedure, Dr. Sandy T. Feldman and her team will perform a comprehensive eye examination to determine your eligibility for the EVO ICL™ lens implantation. After your initial examination at Clearview to determine that the EVO ICL™ is right for you, you will schedule your procedure. An additional visit is usually necessary prior to the procedure for additional measurements, and a discussion about the benefits as well as risks of the procedure.
The EVO ICL™ procedure typically takes 20 to 30 minutes in an outpatient center. On the day of the procedure, your eyes will be dilated and then in surgery, numbed with a comfort drop (an anesthetic eye drop). Dr. Sandy T. Feldman will implant the EVO ICL™ in the space between the iris (colored part of the eye) and the natural lens and align the lens according to the specifications recommended for your eyes. The lens will remain in place permanently and will not be visible to others. Usually, you cannot feel the lens.
Following the procedure, you may experience some minor discomfort, such as eye irritation or dryness, which can be managed with eye drops or medication. At Clearview Eye and Laser Medical Center, we will re-evaluate your eyes two to four hours after the procedure. Follow up appointments are scheduled to ensure proper healing and to monitor your vision improvement.
Overall, the EVO ICL™ procedure is a safe and effective vision correction option for patients with moderate to severe nearsightedness and astigmatism.1,2 The procedure is quick and can provide long-lasting results, making it an attractive alternative to traditional laser vision correction.
