This comprehensive guide will help you discover what makes EVO ICL special and the next steps in your vision restoration journey.

Candidate for EVO ICL Surgery

What is EVO ICL Surgery?

EVO Visian ICL (Implantable Collamer Lens) is an advanced vision correction procedure for those seeking freedom from glasses or contacts. The EVO ICL is a state-of-the-art lens implanted within the eye to correct vision without removing corneal tissue. The lens is made of Collamer, a material that’s biocompatible with the eye and provides UV protection.

Ideal Candidates for EVO ICL

The EVO ICL surgery is designed for patients who want a reversible, lens-based vision correction solution. The candidacy for this procedure is determined through a comprehensive eye exam and consultation with Dr. Monson, a surgical sub-specialist. Here are a few key qualifiers to consider:


Ideal candidates are typically between the ages of 21 and 45, as vision tends to be more stable during these years.

Stable Prescription

A good candidate has had a stable prescription for at least one year, ensuring that their vision won't continue to change significantly after the ICL is implanted.

Myopia and Astigmatism

The EVO ICL is approved for the correction of myopia (nearsightedness) and astigmatism. Patients with mild to moderate levels of these conditions may experience the best results.

Adequate Anterior Chamber Depth

The depth of the eye's anterior chamber is critical. There needs to be enough space in the eye for the ICL to sit without causing pressure or contact with the natural lens.

Good Eye Health

Candidates should be free from eye diseases, such as glaucoma, iritis, or diabetic retinopathy.

Unsuitable Candidates for LASIK

Some patients are not candidates for LASIK due to thin corneas or dry eyes. EVO ICL offers an alternative for these patients.

No Prior Eye Surgeries

Those with no previous ophthalmic surgeries may have a higher chance of qualifying for EVO ICL.

Not Currently Pregnant

Hormonal changes during pregnancy can affect vision. It's best to undergo EVO ICL when not pregnant or nursing.

Benefits of EVO ICL

The EVO ICL comes with a myriad of benefits. Since the lens is inserted into the eye, most users find that they experience clear vision 24/7 without the daily hassle of glasses or contacts. Furthermore, it's a reversible procedure, offering peace of mind to those apprehensive about permanent vision correction options.
