Evo Visian Implantable Contact Lens

Evo Visian Implantable Contact Lens

The Evo Visian Implantable Contact Lens or ICL for short differs from cataract surgery in that your natural lens is not removed. Instead a thin lens similar in function to a contact lens is placed in front of your natural lens where it cannot be seen or felt. The lens is inserted through a small 2.5mm incision on the cornea under local anaesthesia. The operation is a short 5 minute procedure and painless. Vision is significantly improved immediately and continues to improve over the next few days.

It allows you to achieve ultra-high definition vision without many of the risks associated with LASIK. Unlike LASIK surgery the corneal shape is not changed and no corneal tissue is removed. ICL surgery is therefore reversible as well as less destructive. Implantable lenses are placed inside the eye to enhance the focusing abilities of the eye’s natural lens providing excellent quality of vision for a wide range of vision correction. Should your prescription change, the lens is replaceable to maintain your vision for years to come.

  • ICL is invisible and works like a contact lens within the eye
  • ICL is tiny and soft and is injected painlessly into the eye in a few seconds through a tiny opening in the cornea
  • You will be able to see almost immediately with complete recovery within a few hours
  • ICL is removable and replaceable unlike laser treatment
  • ICL provides high definition vision for even the most complex corrections such as astigmatism as well as extreme short sight
  • ICL provides high patient satisfaction even if you have dry eyes or large pupils
  • A superior alternative to Laser vision correction
  • Preferred technique for Astronauts and fighter pilots and approved by NASA
  • Viewpoint is the only clinic in the North West to offer this advanced Technology since 1997.
  • Mr Chitkara is one of the first surgeon in UK to perform ICL surgery with the longest experience in UK.

Intralase or Femtosecond LASIK (Blade-Free LASIK)

One of the most important advances in LASIK technology was the introduction of the Femtosecond laser (Intralase).

The use of a femtosecond Laser (Intralase) to create the initial corneal flap instead of a microkeratome is known as ‘Blade-Free LASIK’ or Intralase Lasik. The Intralase cuts the cornea in a more precise and reproducible manner. This enables the surgeons to create thinner flaps more safely. The potential benefits of Intralase LASIK are:

  • Safety and accuracy
  • Wider range of suitability
  • Less Dry eyes
  • Lower re-treatment rates
  • Viewpoint Vision is happy to provide this advanced technology for all our LASIK patients and we continue to refine the procedure by upgrading to our newer faster Teneo Excimer Laser.

    Patient Feedback

    "Mr. Chitkara recommended the corrective lenses implant and talked through everything I needed to know and what to expect. He gave me time to make a decision about what I wanted to do with no pressure... I had the procedure in October 2013 and have never looked back (pardon the pun). It is honestly the best thing I have ever had. I recovered quickly and virtually pain free, being back at work two days later... I am now nearly 4 years into having my implants and have had no problems what so ever. The aftercare I received from Mr Chitkara is excellent, he is professional, friendly and shows you the health of your eye, whilst being caring about what he does.

    I would highly recommend this clinic to anyone who is thinking of having this procedure or similar one done."
