Implantable Collamer Lens (Evo ICL)

In harmony with your natural eye.

Evo ICL Overview

Evo ICL Overview

Implantable collamer lens, or EVO ICL, is a type of refractive procedure where an artificial lens is inserted in front of the eye’s natural lens, behind the iris, to provide clear, sharp vision. This procedure is excellent for vision correction candidates with very thin corneas or those with mild to severe “coke bottle” glasses for nearsightedness.

Dr Feinerman was the first surgeon in California to implant the EVO ICL after FDA approval.

Our EVO ICL Process



It all starts with a comprehensive eye exam and consultation with Dr. Feinerman where he describes the procedure in detail and answers any questions you may have. Dr. Feinerman will review and discuss your individual situation and determine the best treatment plan.



Our staff ensures you are reclined and comfortable. The EVO ICL procedure—performed by Dr. Feinerman—is generally painless and takes only about 10-15 minutes per eye. Patients generally recover very quickly following treatment (within a few hours).



After the procedure, Dr. Feinerman personally calls his patients to ensure they are doing well and to address any questions. During your actual in-person post-op visit, Dr. Feinerman will perform a final examination to ensure recovery is complete.

benefits of Evo ICL

Although LASIK and PRK can cause some dry eye symptoms, the EVO ICL does not cause dry eyes. Other benefits of EVO ICL are the quick procedure and recovery times, excellent night vision, and UV protection. The lens is also invisible to the naked eye.

EVO ICL can also be done on patients whose corneas are too thin for LASIK or PRK.

What really sets the EVO ICL apart from other vision correction procedures is that it’s reversible.  Although very unlikely,  if your vision changes in the future, the ICL can be easily removed and replaced.
