What is EVO Visian ICL?

EVO Visian ICL, also called an Implantable Collamer® Lens, is a refractive implant to correct common vision issues like myopia (nearsightedness) and astigmatism. Unlike some other vision correction options, the EVO Visian ICL is an additive technology that corrects vision without the removal of any corneal tissue. The EVO Visian ICL is meant to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contacts and unlike most permanent refractive solutions, EVO Visian ICL is removable.

EVO Visian ICL Procedure - What to Expect

EVO Visian ICL is made of biocompatible Collamer material that works in harmony with your eye. Your eye doctor will create a small opening in your cornea that will be used to insert and position the EVO Visian ICL. The procedure is typically painless with numbing eye drops and it typically takes less than 20 - 30 minutes. You can experience improved vision right away and a quick recovery time.

Patient Testimonials

"After having the ICL surgery done my eyes are much more comfortable, and I don't have to deal with dry contacts or fogging glasses. As an added bonus being able to see all the time no matter what is especially nice in the middle of the night. I had been thinking about doing this surgery for a few years, and now that it's done I don't have any regrets and highly recommend it to others."

Dr. Kovach and his staff are extremely knowledgeable, professional and friendly. I won’t trust anyone else with the health of my eyes and the quality of my vision. You should prepare to be in his office 1-2 hours because thoroughness takes time. He gives each patient the same courtesy of time. You won’t be disappointed if you trust his expertise.

Kovach Eye Institute in Naperville is a phenomenal place if you need an Eye Care specialist. Dr. Mateen K. AliNiazee has given me the gift of sight. He is a true professional and thorough and really cares for his patients. I am so very thankful to him and ALL of his outstanding staff. I also visited the Elmhurst and South Barrington locations and great service at each.
