Are you looking for better vision but not sure about your options? EVO ICL™ implantable collamer lenses give you brighter, clearer vision with many benefits. Along with minimal recovery time, EVO ICL™ offers a reduced need for corrective lenses and an option for those who cannot have more traditional laser eye surgery like LASIK.
What is EVO ICL™?
EVO ICL™ is an Implantable Collamer® Lens that fits over your natural one. Dr. Senekal offers the advanced STAAR EVO ICL™, allowing for a smooth, minimally invasive procedure. These new lenses contain collagen, a naturally occurring protein found throughout the body, making them biocompatible and safe. EVO ICL™ lenses are placed over your existing lenses to provide vision correction without disrupting your corneas.
What are the Benefits of EVO ICL™?
EVO ICL™ is an advanced type of eye surgery that has several advantages. The benefits of this procedure include:
Minimally Invasive Procedure
EVO ICL™ only requires a 2.7mm incision to place these lenses. That small incision and lack of disruption to the cornea make this procedure safe for many people who cannot have LASIK or SMILE due to thin or misshapen corneas. It also carries less risk of dry eye symptoms. Unlike past implantable lenses, EVO ICL™ does not require drainage holes in the iris.

You may see improvements almost immediately after getting your EVO ICL™ lenses. Most people see a dramatic improvement in their vision, and you may have less or no need for glasses or contact lenses. Because EVO ICL™ acts like a second focusing lens on top of your natural one, it corrects the angle of incoming light.
Biocompatible EVO ICL™ do not need to be removed and will last a lifetime. Your eyes will still experience age-related changes over time, including presbyopia or cataracts, conditions of your natural lenses. You can enjoy the benefits of your implantable contact lenses for many years.
What is Recovery Like After EVO ICL™?
Since EVO ICL™ does not remove anything from your eye, recovery takes very little time. Most people can return to driving and most of their usual activities within two days. Minor irritation or sensitivity to light may occur. We will provide prescription eye drops for the first week. Avoid rubbing or touching your eyes for a week, and do not go swimming for at least two weeks after the procedure.
Am I a Good Candidate for EVO ICL™?
Almost anyone makes a good candidate for EVO ICL™. Even those who should not have LASIK or other laser eye surgery due to corneal issues may be good candidates for this procedure. EVO ICL™ treats those with nearsightedness and astigmatism for significant vision improvements.
