St. Louis, Missouri -

Brinton Vision, a leading St. Louis LASIK and vision correction practice, has published a broad-reaching blog article about the newest vision correction device, the EVO ICL. The guide, titled 'Is EVO ICL Surgery Safe?' is designed to give prospective vision correction patients an overview of the device and the surgical procedure.

EVO is the latest iteration of the implantable contact lens (ICL). According to STAAR Surgical, the manufacturer of the EVO ICL, more than 1 million ICLs have been implanted as of 2020 in patients across 63 countries. The device received approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in March 2022 but has been used successfully in Europe for years.

“As the first LASIK center in Missouri to perform EVO ICL surgery – and one of the first in the United States – Brinton Vision is in a unique position to provide patients with perspective on this emerging technology,” said Jason Brinton, MD. “The earlier our patients can get accurate, first-hand information about their vision correction options, the better decisions they can make.”

The article, published on the Brinton Vision blog, answers several key questions for patients considering LASIK or other vision correction procedures, such as 'What is EVO ICL?', 'How does the EVO ICL work?', 'What are the benefits and risks of EVO ICL?', and ''Who is a candidate for EVO ICL?'

The EVO lens provides the same level of vision correction as previous iterations of the ICL, but the foldable lens is designed to be easier and more comfortable to implant. And, unlike psuedophakic intraocular lenses (IOLs), which replace the natural lens, EVO ICL works in conjunction with the eye’s natural lens. Each lens is selected for the specific needs of the patient to achieve optimal visual acuity.

LASIK is ideal for treating mild nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia) or astigmatism, but it can’t fix the high degree of refractive error that EVO ICL can – between -3.0 diopters and -15.0.

Brinton Vision was the first in the state to perform EVO ICL and is the only full-time refractive surgery center in Missouri specializing in LASIK and all modern variations (including SBK, SMILE, Visian ICL and more). Information about these vision correction options is available on the company’s website,
