The NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center is consistently ranked the #1 Hospital in New York year after year by New York Magazine.

EVO Visian ICL

EVO Visian ICL is an Implantable Collamer™ Lens that corrects common vision problems such as nearsightedness (myopia) and astigmatism. The lens, which is slightly smaller than a typical contact lens, is implanted in the eye during a 20 to 30 minute procedure. Unlike laser vision correction surgeries that permanently change the shape of your cornea, the EVO Visian ICL procedure is additive, meaning that no corneal tissue is removed. Worldwide, more than 2 million EVO Visian ICL lenses have been implanted.
What are the Benefits of EVO Visian ICL?
  • Sharp, clear vision
  • Does not cause dry eye syndrome, which is a common concern with laser vision correction surgeries
  • Quick procedure and recovery with minimal downtime
  • A great option for people with thin corneas
  • Built-in UV Protection
  • Designed for permanent vision correction, but can be removed for added peace of mind
