Staar Surgical’s EVO Visian ICL™ (Implantable Collamer Lens) is a tiny, flexible implantable lens made of collagen polymers that are 100% biocompatible and has UV protection. The ICL is placed and positioned by Dr Vrabec behind the iris (the colored part of the eye), where it is invisible to both you and others. It was FDA-approved in 2005 to correct myopia, and has been implanted in over 1,000,000 patients worldwide.
To determine if you are a candidate, Dr Vrabec will perform a detailed consultation and examination of your eyes including a dilated examination of your retina. After reviewing measurements of your eyes, he will discuss the procedure with you in detail and determine if the Visian ICL is a good fit with your unique vision needs and goals.
The best candidates for ICL surgery are typically between the ages of 21 and 45 and nearsighted, with or without astigmatism. This procedure is able to treat a range of patients from low to extremely high myopia and may beneficial for those who are not a candidate for laser vision correction due to thin corneas or dry eyes. It is preferable that the patient has not undergone any ophthalmic surgery and does not have a history of eye disease such as iritis, glaucoma, or diabetic retinopathy.
