Implantable collamer lenses, or EVO ICLs, are an incredibly advanced way to permanently correct vision. An EVO ICL is essentially a long-term contact lens implanted in front of the eye’s natural lens. EVO ICLs are virtually undetectable, unnoticeable, and come with nearly two decades of safe and effective use. If you’re tired of using contacts or glasses to correct your vision, then you can enjoy a worry-free lifestyle with the help of our reputable and knowledgeable team at Anh Nguyen Ophthalmology.


Not everyone is a good candidate for laser eye surgery, but EVO ICLs are an excellent alternative for patients who have refractive errors like astigmatism, nearsightedness, and farsightedness. EVO ICLs are implanted in a quick, 30-minute session by our surgical ophthalmologist. They can’t be seen or felt – they function cohesively with your natural eye so you can see clearly at any time. EVO ICLs can even be removed later or exchanged for a new prescription.

The Benefits of EVO ICLs

EVO ICLs are extremely beneficial to those who wish to permanently correct refractive errors. They are also virtually undetectable, which means that others will not be able to tell you to have them, and they cannot be felt in your eyes. Plus, if you ever need to change your prescription, EVO ICLs can be removed or exchanged at a later date.


Ideal candidates for EVO ICLs are those who are above the age of 18 years old and have moderate to severe refractive errors such as astigmatism, farsightedness, or nearsightedness. Many patients who find this procedure beneficial are otherwise not good candidates for laser procedures because of issues such as thin corneas or a high prescription. To determine if this procedure is right for you, please contact us to schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Nguyen.
