Most procedures are completed within 20-30 minutes or less. With a minimally invasive procedure, many achieve improved vision nearly immediately.



What Can I Expect During the ICL Procedure?

Easy 10-20 Minute Procedure

Before you schedule your ICL appointment your doctor will perform a series of standard tests to measure your eye’s unique characteristics for the procedure. If you are farsighted, your doctor may recommend or schedule an additional pre-op procedure.

EVO ICL is placed behind the iris and in front of the eye’s natural lens so it’s undetectable to any observers. Only a trained doctor using special instrumentation will be able to tell that vision correction has taken place.

Over the past 20 years, ICLs have been implanted in over 1,000,000 eyes worldwide.

Of patients having the EVO ICL procedure, 99.4% would choose to have the EVO ICL procedure again.

Yes! The EVO ICL offers treatment flexibility.If your vision changes dramatically, the lens can be removed.

The EVO ICL is designed to stay in your eye permanently but can be removed to keep pace with advancing technology and your future needs.

No, the EVO ICL is inserted gently in the eye with no removal of corneal tissue.


The EVO ICL avoids such problems experienced with traditional contact lenses. It is designed to remain in place inside the eye, without maintenance. A routine, annual visit with an eye doctor is recommended to make sure everything remains safe and effective.

EVO ICL functions to focus light properly back onto the retina in a similar way glasses and contact lenses do. The EVO ICL is placed into a space of the eye directly behind the iris (the coloured part of the eye) and in front of the natural lens. In this position, the EVO ICL functions to focus light properly onto the retina helping create clear distance vision.
*ICL lenses intended to treat farsightedness are not EVO and require two additional tiny opening in the coloured portion of your eyes to ensure there is proper fluid flow after the ICL is implanted.
