Did You Know the EVO ICL is Removable and Reversible?


Do you want to take your world to new heights? The first step could be to correct your vision.

You can see if you rely on glasses and contact lenses but not to your full potential. If you want to take things to a new, glorious level, it could be as simple as a vision correction procedure that’s removable and reversible, like the EVO ICL.

Keep reading to learn more about the EVO ICL and why this revolutionary procedure is changing the lives of millions!

What is the EVO ICL?

The EVO ICL is an additive lens that supplements the eye’s natural lens. Unlike other vision correction procedures like LASIK and SMILE, which require removing tissue from the cornea, the EVO ICL does not. It also does not remove your natural lens.

Instead, the EVO ICL is placed in your eye and implanted during a quick procedure performed by your IQ Laser Vision surgeon. You’ll have it placed behind your iris and in front of the natural lens to correct nearsightedness and mild astigmatism.

How Does the EVO ICL Work?

To understand the EVO ICL, you first need to understand what it’s made of. The EVO ICL is constructed from a material called collamer. Collamer comes from collagen, which you need for healthy skin, bones, and muscles.

Because collamer is derived from collagen, it’s uniquely biocompatible and in natural harmony with the chemistry of your eye. Its biocompatible nature means the EVO ICL will not be viewed as foreign once it’s in your eye.

Instead, it will feel comfortable and like part of your eye. You won’t be able to feel the EVO ICL once it’s in your eye, and nobody else will know it’s there unless you tell them.

The EVO ICL is also one of the best choices for patients with dry eyes. Because no tissue is removed from the cornea during the procedure, you also won’t have to worry about corneal nerves getting severed, which can lead to dry eyes during recovery from laser eye procedures like LASIK.

What Sets the EVO ICL Apart from Other Procedures?

The EVO ICL is helping patients who dream of achieving their dreams of visual freedom from glasses and contact lenses. But what sets it apart from other procedures like LASIK and SMILE?

EVO ICL is Removable

One of the most significant differences that sets the EVO ICL apart from other procedures is that it’s removable. Other procedures, including LASIK and SMILE, use lasers to reshape the cornea and correct refractive errors. But the EVO ICL is not a laser procedure, as it’s an additive lens that supplements your natural lens.

LASIK and SMILE can also correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, while the EVO ICL can only correct nearsightedness and astigmatism. However, the EVO ICL is a trailblazer in vision correction procedures because it’s removable.

Rather than reshaping the cornea to correct nearsightedness and astigmatism, the EVO ICL works most closely like a contact lens. However, the EVO ICL does not come with the same maintenance that contact lenses require either because you don’t have to remove the EVO ICL unless you choose to.

Patients who choose the EVO ICL love the reassurance it provides them because any procedure performed on the eye can be something that causes anxiety. But with the EVO ICL being removable, your surgeon can take it out if you change your mind, and your vision will revert to how it was before the procedure.

What’s not to love about finally having power over your vision?

Are you a good candidate for the EVO ICL?

EVO ICL is Reversible

In addition to being removable, the EVO ICL is also reversible. Undergoing any vision correction procedure should require considering it extensively before deciding to have it, and the EVO ICL is no exception.

But knowing that it’s removable and reversible gives patients much-needed peace of mind because they don’t have to worry about their vision altering if they change their mind about it. But the thing is, most patients love the results of the EVO ICL and don’t have it taken out.

The EVO ICL is meant to stay in your eye permanently to help improve your nearsightedness and mild astigmatism, but you can always remove it. Another advantage of the EVO ICL being removable and reversible is you can replace it with an intraocular lens (IOL) during cataract surgery when you get older.

Most people will eventually need cataract surgery, and the IOL is crucial to helping you see clearly after removing your cataract. By removing the EVO ICL, you can see clearly with your designated IOL. At this point, the EVO ICL will have served its purpose, likely for several decades.

Who is a Good Candidate for the EVO ICL?

Now, the question is, who is a good candidate for the EVO ICL? Not everyone will qualify for it because it is a vision correction procedure.

You may be a good candidate for the EVO ICL if:

  • You’re between the ages of 21 and 45
  • You have a stable prescription that’s remained unchanged for a year or more with no cataracts
  • You’re nearsighted up to -20.0 diopters with mild astigmatism
  • You’re not currently pregnant or nursing
  • You have realistic expectations about what the EVO ICL could achieve
  • You want to live a life that reduces your dependence on visual aids
  • You’re in good health and able to recover after undergoing a vision correction procedure
  • You’re not a good candidate for PRK or LASIK, but still want to correct your vision
