Who is a candidate for EVO ICL?

EVO ICL is a treatment option for myopia and myopic astigmatism, capable of addressing up to 20D of myopia and up to 4D of astigmatism. However, there are several additional factors that are evaluated before determining if EVO ICL surgery is appropriate for an individual. Therefore, the most effective way to determine if this surgery is suitable for you is to schedule a consultation with one of our eye doctors. Patients might be a good fit for EVO ICL if:

  • Age requirement: You must be 18 years of age or older.
  • Suitable vision condition: Our solution is designed for individuals seeking correction for moderate to severe nearsightedness, with or without astigmatism.
  • Stable prescription: Your prescription should not have undergone significant changes within the past year.
  • Healthy eyes: Apart from nearsightedness or astigmatism, your eyes should be in good health.

These criteria are essential to ensure the safety and effectiveness of our vision correction solution.

What is the recovery process like?

The recovery process after EVO ICL surgery is typically swift and minimally invasive, with many patients experiencing a restoration of relatively normal eye function within just 24 hours. However, it is important to note that individual recovery times may vary. Throughout the recovery period, the skilled ICL surgeon will closely monitor your progress and provide personalized guidance. As part of the recovery protocol, the use of prescribed eye drops is commonly recommended to promote healing. Although uncommon, in rare cases, there may be a temporary elevation of eye pressure, for which the ophthalmologist may prescribe medications to alleviate any discomfort and reduce the pressure accordingly. Your ophthalmologist will guide you through the recovery process, ensuring optimal outcomes and addressing any concerns that may arise.
