Will I feel the ICL once placed?
No. Once your ICL has been placed, you won’t be able to see or feel it at all.
Will it hurt?
Before your procedure, you’ll be given a local anesthetic to prevent any significant discomfort. Typically, patients don’t experience any pain during or after their EVO ICL surgery.
Can it dry out or get dirty?
No. Because an ICL isn’t on the surface of the eye, it can’t get dry or dirty in the way that a typical contact lens would.
Can both eyes be treated at the same time?
Yes. Patients can have each ICL implanted separately or have both eyes treated in one procedure. During your consultation, you and your provider will determine the best treatment plan for your needs.
What’s the difference between ICL and LASIK?
EVO ICL and LASIK are two very different procedures. EVO ICL surgery involves implanting a special lens in front of the eye’s natural lens and behind the iris. LASIK, on the other hand, is performed by reshaping the cornea with a special cutting laser. Both procedures are used to improve eyesight.
