South Florida’s Best EVO ICL
What is EVO ICL?
EVO ICL, also called an Implantable Collamer® Lens, is a refractive implant to correct common vision issues like myopia (nearsightedness) with or without astigmatism. Unlike some other vision correction options, the EVO ICL is an additive technology that corrects vision without the removal of any corneal tissue. EVO ICL is meant to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses and contacts and unlike most permanent refractive solutions, EVO ICL is removable by your doctor for added peace of mind.
Implantable Collamer Lenses (ICL) are a good alternative for people who are not suitable for refractive procedures such as LASIK because of:
- Moderate to severe nearsightedness
- Thin corneas
- History of dry eye
- Large pupils
At CorrectVision Laser Institute, we offer patients the EVO® ICL in Clermont as an excellent alternative to LASIK to treat a wide range of refractive errors (nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism).

How the EVO ICL Works
Made from biocompatible Collamer®, this lens is implanted between your iris and natural lens through tiny corneal incisions. The lens allows light entering the eye to focus on the retina for clear vision. Even though the lens will be invisible to others, it can make your vision sharper and more vivid. Some patients will see more clearly immediately after the procedure is performed.
Benefits of EVO ICL
- Provides clear, sharp vision
- 20 to 30 minute procedure
- Quick recovery time
- Removable by your doctor
- Offers UV protection
- Lens is unnoticeable to others
- Can treat nearsightedness with or without astigmatism
- For patients who may not be candidates for LASIK or other vision correction procedures due to thin corneas

The procedure itself typically causes very little discomfort and no pain for most patients because the eye is numbed with a topical or local anesthetic prior to the procedure. It is performed in our office as an outpatient procedure.
