STAAR EVO Implantable Collamer Lens


LASIK Eye Surgery by Dr. Michael Furlong


EVO ICL – Evolution in Visual Freedom – is a breakthrough, FDA approved, 20 minute Implantable Collamer Lens procedure with immediate visual improvements for myopia and astigmatism designed to give patients freedom from their glasses and contacts. Made from Collamer® – a biocompatible material that works in harmony with the eye – EVO can treat a wide range of refractive errors.

Patients who want a flexible and biocompatible vision correction option, as well as many patients who are not candidates for laser vision correction, find that EVO ICL is the right procedure for them.  In a survey, 99.4% of EVO patients have stated they would have the procedure again. See how STAAR EVO changed the life of Joe Jonas.

The lens, which is slightly smaller than a typical contact lens, is implanted in the eye during a 20 to 30 minute procedure with immediate vision improvement.

Unlike laser vision correction surgeries that permanently change the shape of the cornea, the EVO  ICL procedure is additive, meaning that no corneal tissue is removed, thus preventing dry eye syndrome. Worldwide, more than 2 million EVO lenses have been implanted.
