EVO ICL, also called an Implantable Collamer® Lens, is a refractive implant to correct common vision issues like myopia (nearsightedness) and astigmatism. Unlike some other vision correction options, the EVO ICL is an additive technology that corrects vision without the removal of any corneal tissue. The EVO ICL is meant to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contacts and unlike most permanent refractive solutions, EVO ICL is removable.
Dr. Charles was an FDA investigator for the Implantable Collamer Lens. Our surgeons have more experience with ICL than any other in the state and Williamson Eye Center is the only place in the State of Louisiana where patients can have an ICL procedure done. If you have been told your prescription is too high for LASIK, your corneas are too thin, or you are concerned about dry eye with other procedures, you may be an ideal candidate for the ICL procedure. Call 225-924-2020 for a free consultation to learn more about this procedure and to see if you are a candidate.Schedule Consultation

EVO ICL is made of biocompatible Collamer material that works in harmony with your eye. Your eye doctor will create a small opening in your cornea that will be used to insert and position the EVO ICL. The procedure is typically painless with numbing eye drops and it typically takes less than 20 minutes. You can experience improved vision right away and a quick recovery time.
The EVO ICL is made of Collamer an advanced lens material that has unique properties. Collamer transmits light and reduces reflections that can interfere with vision, so you see clearly. Made of a copolymer and collagen, Collamer is also highly biocompatible. It allows the EVO ICL to rest quietly in position while accurately correcting vision. Collamer is the only lens material made with collagen- the best choice for a lens that is going to remain inside your body for a lifetime. The EVO ICL does not alter any structures within the eye. If necessary, it can be removed from the eye by a simple surgical procedure.Schedule Consultation
The cost of an EVO ICL procedure can vary depending on your personalized treatment plan. Many EVO ICL patients look forward to spending less in the long run with the EVO ICL compared to the continued costs of contacts and glasses. Ask your eye doctor about financing options and payment plans that may be available for your EVO ICL procedure.Schedule Consultation
