Philadelphia EVO Visian ICL™
Dr. Lewis is proud to offer his patients a variety of state-of-the-art vision correction treatments. In addition to LASIK, Epi-LASIK, and PRK he specializes in the implantation of EVO Visian intraocular collamer lenses (ICLs). As the first surgeon in Pennsylvania trained to implant Visian ICLs, Dr. Lewis has helped numerous Philadelphia EVO patients achieve clear vision through this procedure. His reputation as a highly talented, experienced EVO ICL Philadelphia surgeon attracts patients from throughout Pennsylvania, including Bucks County, Elkins Park, Phoenixville, King of Prussia, Abington, Conshohocken and Warminster.
Some patients who aren’t candidates for LASIK, Epi-LASIK, or PRK choose to have Staar’s EVO Visian Intraocular Contact Lens, or more simply, EVO.
Originally conceived for patients who are extremely nearsighted, the incredible visual results have prompted many surgeons to offer this option to patients who easily qualify for LASIK. The safety profile, the absence of dry eye, the reversibility, the absence of tissue modification, and the resulting “High Definition Vision” has prompted many patients to choose the EVO. It is the holistic alternative to LASIK.
Some patients choose the EVO because the procedure is entirely reversible. The technique is performed with IV sedation and recovery is almost immediate. Many patients claim they achieve vision better than they ever experienced with glasses and contact lenses.
The FDA approved the Toric-ICL (T-ICL) a few years ago and has now certified the EVO. The EVO provides better vision, greater safety, and LASIK-like simplicity.
The vast majority of our patients qualify for LASIK, Epi-LASIK, PRK, as well as EVO. At your evaluation we will discuss how each procedure relates to your specific ocular state and your personal goals. It is an exciting time in refractive surgery. We have an array of options to match each patient’s lifestyle goals.
