Introducing EVO ICL Lens

The Latest Advancement in Vision Correction Surgery

At Eye Specialists and Surgeons of Northern Virginia, we take pride in offering you a variety of advanced vision correction options so we can find the best vision solution for you. We are excited to announce that the EVO ICL Lens, which earned FDA approval in the United States in March 2022, is now available for our patients in Fairfax and Gainesville.

What is the EVO ICL Lens?

EVO ICL is an Implantable Collamer® Lens that is designed to give you sharp, clear vision.1,2 Like LASIK or PRK, EVO ICL is a refractive surgery that can correct nearsightedness (myopia) and astigmatism. What sets ICL apart is that it can correct a high range of myopia without removing any corneal tissue or contributing to dry eye syndrome.

The EVO ICL Lens is made of Collamer, a biocompatible material that is flexible and works in harmony with your eye. The lens is implanted in a 20 to 30 minute procedure and patients enjoy a quick recovery time.
