Exciting news! Mann Eye Institute is excited to offer EVO ICL (EVO) to provide our patients with another treatment option to correct myopia and astigmatism. If you have been told you are not a LASIK candidate, this is a great alternative!

EVO is an Evolution in Visual Freedom designed to provide premium refractive outcomes while optimizing patient comfort. Made from Collamer®, EVO can treat a wide range of refractive error. 

What is an ICL?

An Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) is an artificial lens that is permanently implanted in the eye and is used to treat myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism. 

About the EVO Procedure

The EVO is a minimally-invasive procedure where the lens is implanted through a small opening, allowing for a quick procedure and recovery. EVO sits inside your eye, eliminating the hassle of having to put in and take out your contact lenses each day. It has a barrier of UV protection and allows you to achieve excellent night vision.

Over 2,000,000 lenses have been implanted worldwide, making EVO an up-and-coming vision correction procedure of choice for many people around the world.
