EVO Visian ICL
At Advanced Vision Care, we use state-of-the-art STAAR Visian ICLs. EVO Visian ICL are made from collamer which is composed of collagen and copolymer material. Forty percent is composed of water, making it very similar to the natural crystalline lens, which means it is completely bio-compatible and there is no chance of rejection.
Unlike other types of implantable contact lenses, EVO Visian ICL is FDA approved. It has been approved in Europe since 1997 and in the US since 2005. In that time, over 500,000 eyes have been implanted with EVO Visian ICLs and has a proven safety record.
The US military regularly implant EVO Visian ICL for their service men/women and have been monitoring the results. They concluded EVO Visian ICL provides “excellent visual and refractive results”. The study showed excellent vision quality and stability of the lens inside the eye even in combat. These ICL’s have shown to be an effective, safe, predictable and stable way to correct high and low levels of short-sighted (myopia), long-sighted (hyperopia) and astigmatism.
The EVO Visian ICL design has been constantly evolving to where it is today.
The latest design of the Visian V4C lens with Centraflow technology has an innovative design feature which enhances the safety of the treatment and reduces the procedure time. A recent study by Alfonso et al. showed a lower incidence of anterior capsular opacities with the latest Visian model due to its improved vaulting.
Traditional ICL’s require an iridectomy, which is the creation of a tiny hole in the iris to allow the flow of aqueous humour from the posterior to the anterior chambers of the eye. The need for this has been eliminated as this lens has a central aquaport which maintains stable intra-ocular pressure without compromising on the quality of vision.
