Top EVO ICL Surgeon in the U.S.
In the Implantable Collamer Lens (EVO ICL) surgery, a biocompatible contact lens is placed inside the eye behind the colored iris to correct vision. The contact lens is made of Collamer material, collagen naturally found in the body that does not elicit inflammation or rejection. Corneal procedures, such as LASIK and SMILE, correct vision through corneal tissue removal. In contrast, EVO ICL is an additive procedure that does not alter the eye’s natural shape.
The advantages of EVO ICL are:
- Biocompatible lens that is in natural harmony with your eyes.
- Great option for people with thin corneas or predisposed to dry eye syndrome.
- Excellent night vision.
- Designed to be permanent, yet is removable for future vision flexibility, especially after cataract surgery.
- Provides UV protection.
- A clinical study shows a patient satisfaction rate of over 99%.
The patients who undergo EVO ICL surgery tend to have the highest rate of satisfaction.
The popularity of the EVO ICL procedure has grown consistently over the years, and Dr. Paul C. Lee has been at the forefront each step of the way. He was voted the Top EVO ICL Surgeon in the U.S. and was also the first surgeon to perform EVO ICL with astigmatism surgery on the West Coast.
Can Fix Severe
Nearsightedness and Astigmatism
EVO ICL surgery is an “addition” surgery in which a lens is placed inside the eye. Varying degrees of nearsightedness is corrected by changing the lens’s power. In laser vision correction, treatment of higher correction requires more tissue removal and greater alteration of the eye’s shape. On the contrary, EVO ICL surgery leaves the eye in its natural shape regardless of the correction amount. This feature allows surgeons to fix a high degree of nearsightedness and astigmatism with much greater precision and safety.
No Dry Eye
Laser vision correction may cause dry eyes as the surgery removes and reshapes the corneal tissue. The Visian EVO ICL procedure does not induce dry eye syndrome.
Procedure for a
Unlike other eye surgeries that cause a permanent change to the eye, EVO ICL is a reversible procedure. The lens can be removed or exchanged to suit the eye’s changing needs with age. This unique feature allows long-term planning in vision correction.
