BIOLOGIST PHIL TORRES EXCELS IN HIS CAREER AFTER VISIAN ICL

Who needs EVO Visian ICL surgery?

IF YOU’RE UNSUITABLE FOR LASER EYE SURGERY AND ANY OF THE CHALLENGES BELOW SOUND FAMILIAR, WE CAN HELP YOU

YOU’RE DEPENDENT ON GLASSES AND CONTACT LENSES TO SEE CLEARLY

You’re under 40 and have a refractive error but do not qualify or have no interest in laser vision correction.

You experience headaches, eyestrain, fatigue and squinting. This concoction of symptoms can make you feel inconvenienced and irritated. Luckily, glasses can correct these common eye problems. But they come at a cost. The constant cleaning, the de-fogging, the breaking, pushing them up, taking them off, leaving them behind, the list goes on.

You may not like the look or feel of your glasses, or avoid certain activities because they get in the way.

Even contact lenses come with their own set of issues; the dryness, the serious risk of eye infection or computer vision syndrome, and that terrifying moment when one gets lost behind your eye.

There’s no disputing that you should be able to see clearly with the eyes you were born with. With modern refractive surgery, we can correct your eye problem safely and effectively, so that you can obtain the vision you were always supposed to have.

How does Evo Visian Implantable Contact Lens (ICL) surgery impact people day by day?

THE BEST THING ABOUT EVO VISIAN ICL SURGERY IS…

YOU HAVE BRILLIANTLY CLEAR VISION WITHOUT VISUAL AIDS

We’ll have corrected your visual error. Everything will be sharp and in focus. You’ll no longer depend on your glasses and contact lenses to see clearly.

YOU FEEL ATTRACTIVE, CONFIDENT AND FREE

Glasses will no longer dictate the way you look or get in the way. Your risk of infection from contact lenses will be eliminated. You’ll have the freedom and motivation to do anything you want.

YOU ARE NO LONGER INCONVENIENCED BY VISUAL AIDS

Right from the moment you wake up, you can check your phone or take a shower without having to reach for your glasses or contacts. You can go out for a run or do some work on your computer without them falling off or harbouring dirt. You can fall into bed after a late-night without having to remove them first.

YOU ARE ABLE TO RECONNECT WITH THE WORLD

Your glasses will no longer dominate your appearance. The people you meet will see you as you really are and will no longer make superficial judgements or evaluations. Your world will no longer be framed and narrower as a result.

YOU CAN REVEAL YOUR TRUE IDENTITY

With so many safe and effective refractive surgery procedures available, it seems ridiculous to rely on a medical device to see clearly. A more spontaneous, fitter and free you is in there, you’ve just got to get off the fence and make it happen.

Samer Hamada and Eye Clinic London enable Londoners to experience life without the hassle of glasses and contacts so they can focus on what matters most.

“Mr Hamada’s Eye Clinic London and his team are a delight. Nothing was too much trouble and the help, support, advice and guidance before during and after the surgery was all world class. I have worn glasses since the age of 13 years and had the onset of cataracts for the last five so it has all been very much a life changing experience to be free from glasses once more.”

Everything you need to know about Evo Visian Implantable Contact Lenses (ICL)

IN THESE TOGGLES YOU WILL FIND THE DETAILS YOU ARE LOOKING FOR

Evo Visian Implantable Contact Lenses (ICLs), also known as Implantable Collamer Lenses, could be the right treatment to free you from glasses and contact lenses if you are:

  • Short-sighted
  • Long-sighted
  • Have astigmatism
  • Do not qualify or have no interest in laser vision correction

Only an Eye Clinic London eye surgeon will be able to tell you for sure if you qualify for Evo Visian ICLs.

Typically, you are suitable for Evo Visian ICLs if you are:

  • 21 or over
  • Have a severe form of one or more of the eye conditions mentioned above
  • Have a cornea that is too thin for laser vision correction
  • Do not yet show symptoms of presbyopia or a cataract

An Evo Visian ICL is like a contact lens that we implant in your eye. You do not require the laser to reshape your cornea, and the results are clear vision without the need for glasses or contact lenses.

After we place the Evo Visian ICL inside your eye, you’ll be able to see objects that appear in the distance, up close and all distances in between. The lens is permanent, and no one will see it. We can also remove it if necessary.

If you develop a cataract later in life, we can easily remove the lens to allow for cataract surgery.

No dry eye syndrome

Evo Visian ICLs are made of biocompatible Collamer. That means the lens material works in harmony with the natural chemistry of your eye and body. The advantage of this is that we do not need to reshape your cornea, minimising unnatural causes of dry eye syndrome.

A removable option

We describe the implant process as an additive corrective procedure. We add a corrective lens to correct near-sightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. That means that should your prescription change or if other vision needs arise, you can choose to remove the lens.

Quick procedure & recovery

The Evo Visian ICL procedure is a quick and comfortable process. We complete most procedures within 20-30 minutes or less. With a minimally invasive procedure, many achieve improved vision nearly immediately.

Evo Visian ICL has been approved by the local health authority, which means it is safe and effective. As with any procedure, there are risks to consider.

Over or under correction

The most common complication with any refractive procedure is overcorrection or under-correction. We take every precaution to take meticulous measurements before your procedure to ensure the right amount of correction is prescribed. Because the EVO lens can be removed, we can make adjustments to reduce any overcorrection or under-correction. The same risks apply to the second surgery.

Halos & night glare

There is a possibility of halos and glare around lights at night in any refractive procedure like Lasik, PRK or EVO Visian ICLs.

Damage to the crystalline lens

Since we place the EVO lens inside the eye, there is a potential risk of touching the eye’s natural (crystalline) lens. This could cause an opacity (cataract) of the lens. In the most serious case, we may need to remove the cataractous natural lens and replace it with a synthetic lens. This problem occurs in less than 1.5% of patients.

Increase in eye pressure

In some cases, an increase in eye pressure can occur as a result of the procedure. In the event of this occurrence, your doctor may quickly correct the problem with additional medication or surgical intervention. If not corrected or left untreated, the increased pressure could result in loss of vision. Remember to speak with your doctor about your personal situation and considerations.

Risk of infection

All surgical or refractive procedures involve invasiveness, which means there is a risk of infection. While uncommon, it’s important to realise that an eye infection can have a range of results, from delayed healing to serious eye damage. We try to reduce this risk by starting with sterile products used in a minimally invasive procedure and preventative treatments administered to the affected area.

Loss of visual acuity

While extremely rare, all refractive procedures can damage the eye, including the loss of visual acuity, including in most severe cases loss of functional vision.

Iridotomy complications (if iridotomy is required)

During the iridotomy phase of the pre-op treatment, we can use a laser to make small incisions in the eye. Complications from this incision rarely occur but can cause natural lens or corneal damage, inflammation, increased intraocular pressure, bleeding and scar formation. Iridotomies are not required for all lens models. We will let you know at your appointment if your lens model requires this step.

At your consultation, we will check your glasses prescription and analyse your eyes with a series of tests to check your suitability.

We will discuss your specific requirements in detail and determine the strength of lens required. If you decide to go ahead with treatment, the lenses will be made to your exact specifications.
