Why Everyone Is Talking About EVO Visian ICL

EVO Visian ICL Beverly Hills, CA

LASIK has historically been the best-known name in refractive surgery, but more recently it is facing some stiff competition for that title.  EVO Visian ICL has become a popular option for patients who want to improve their visual acuity. In fact, Dr. Brian Boxer-Wachler, a leading ophthalmologist in Beverly Hills, has seen a sharp rise in patients who are interested in this procedure.

Exceptional Results

Patients who make the decision to improve their sight with EVO Visian ICL can enjoy crisp visual acuity. The ICL is implanted into the eye between the iris and the lens, and this usually helps patients achieve sharper vision than with glasses (which rest away from the eye) and other forms of refractive surgery. EVO Visian ICL is most suited for patients with mild to severe nearsightedness (myopia) and/or mild to moderate astigmatism.  Dr. Brian has also had great success using EVO Visian ICL in people with keratoconus.

Reduced Dependence on Prescription Lenses

After having EVO Visian ICL, patients typically see well enough at various distances that they no longer need to rely on prescription lenses like eyeglasses and contacts in most situations. This makes a variety of activities, including exercising and driving, so much easier. Some patients may be able to give up their prescription lenses entirely.

It’s Reversible

Other forms of refractive surgery make permanent changes to the cornea. Although EVO Visian ICL is designed to last for patients in the long term, in the rare cases where a patient and doctor decide that removing the lens is appropriate (ahead of a major eye surgery or because the patient’s vision prescription has changed dramatically), this typically can be achieved with an easy and safe procedure.

Minimal Downtime and Discomfort

The recovery from EVO Visian ICL is easy for most patients. Their eyes are numbed with a local anesthetic so that there is no pain during the procedure and any mild discomfort that patients experience in the day or days following surgery can be managed with a pain medication. Because the ICL does not change the cornea, the total recovery time is often faster than for other refractive procedures like LASIK. They also do not usually experience adverse side effects like dry eye. Patients typically feel and see well enough to resume normal activities by the next day.
