Experience The Clarity of the EVO ICL

At Newsom Eye, we are committed to providing exceptional vision correction solutions in Florida. We pride ourselves on being more than just an ordinary LASIK clinic. Our team offers a wide range of vision correction alternatives and assists patients in selecting the most suitable option for their needs. We are delighted to be one of the first practices in Florida to provide the EVO ICL, a groundbreaking treatment that can potentially elevate your vision beyond glasses, beyond contact lenses, and possibly, even beyond 20/20.

What Is The EVO ICL?

Newsom Eye was amongst the practices in Florida to implant the groundbreaking EVO ICL. This revolutionary refractive implant, developed by STAAR Surgical, is designed to correct and enhance vision for issues such as nearsightedness and astigmatism, without removing any corneal tissue. This state-of-the-art technology offers long-lasting results, potentially eliminating the need for glasses or contact lenses for clear vision. Unlike permanent laser procedures like LASIK or PRK, the EVO ICL can be removed or replaced if necessary in the future, providing you with peace of mind. Our Florida vision correction team at Newsom Eye will help determine if the EVO is the best option for you.

Who Is A Good Candidate For The EVO ICL?

The EVO ICL is an excellent vision correction option for those 21-45, who wear glasses or contacts for nearsightedness (myopia) with or without astigmatism. At Newsom Eye, many patients who suffer from a high degree of nearsightedness or astigmatism are often better candidates for the EVO Visian ICL over LASIK or PRK. ICL lens candidates should meet the following criteria to qualify for the surgical procedure:

  • Be between 21 and 45 years old
  • Have astigmatism ranging from 0.5 to 6.0D
  • Have mild to severe myopia ranging from -0.5D to -20D
  • Have mild to severe hyperopia ranging from +0.5D to +10D
  • Have not changed your prescription eyewear by more than 0.5D in a year

If you fall into these categories, the EVO Visian ICL might be good for you. Age is an important factor as older generations — people aged 45 and above — may develop presbyopia or early cataracts, which can interfere with your vision clarity. These patients are often better candidates for Refractive Lens Exchange.

How Is The EVO ICL Procedure Performed?

ICL surgery typically takes 30 minutes or less. Dr. Newsom then creates tiny micro incisions near the cornea to allow positioning of the lens between the iris and natural lens. Then, he will carefully implant the lens through these micro-incisions, and the implant will unfold on its own.

Patients are given eye drops to use at home for post-operative care once the surgery is complete.

With most EVO ICL procedures, patients can typically see incredibly well immediately following the procedure, with vision improving over the next several days!
