EVO Visian ICL Reviews
"Awesome experience at vold vision of Fayetteville. I drove 2 1/2 hours to go here for lasik smile, I would recommend everyone to do so also. I have read the bad reviews about wait times, but let’s be real if you want quality/great service at times you will have to sacrifice time because they are busy! I would rather wait a long time to see one of their doctors than go anywhere else. Great job, great customer service! Awesome experience! Can’t thank them enough!"- M.P. / Yelp / Jun 11, 2021
"Best choice I have made was to have Lasik. You won’t be disappointed. From the check in to surgery to post op, best care. Staff is so informative and kind. They make sure you are comfortable the entire time. Love my life without glasses!"- S.C. / Facebook / Jul 07, 2021
"I just got home from my Lasik SMILE surgery. My vision is still a little foggy(normal), but I can already tell I'm seeing more clearly. I can't thank Vold Vision enough for being so professional and comforting before and during this procedure. I was very nervous going into it, but I was super surprised at how fast everything went and how good I feel, just an hour or two after it's done. I highly, highly recommend Vold Vision for anyone undergoing eye surgery. Special shoutout to John for going above and beyond to make sure I was taken care of. Thanks again, guys!"- M.D. / Facebook / Jan 01, 2022
"If you’re looking for a company that will take care of you, look no further than Vold Vision. From the start of my lasik journey til now, they have gone out of their way to make sure I am taken care of. The staff was phenomenal and the procedure was flawless. You won’t be in better hands. Do yourself a favor and check them out!"- M.I. / Facebook / Apr 20, 2022
"Thursday was the last day I’d have to wear contacts or glasses except for SUNGLASSES! Thank you Vold Vision! I’ve been in glasses since I was 6 or 7…that’s 28ish years! I tried to get lasik/lasek but was not a candidate. However, hope was not lost! With EVO ICL I’m able to finally have great vision without the help of contacts or glasses! So if you’ve been turned down before and still dream of life without contacts and glasses definitely make the trip to have a consult at Vold Vision. They have the best staff, they’re very personable and just all around great! #VoldVision #EVOICL"- K.P. / Facebook / Jun 26, 2022
About evo Visian ICL
As an eye clinic devoted to helping our patients live their best life, we pride ourselves on the ability to provide a complete selection of vision correction procedures that can be customized to their unique eyes.
For patients who are seeking freedom from contacts and glasses, Vold Vision offers EVO Visian ICL, also known as the Implantable Collamer® Lens. This implantable lens works with your natural eye to correct the most common visual problem, myopia or nearsightedness, with or without astigmatism.
Collamer is a biocompatible material that works in harmony with the eye. The lens, which is slightly smaller than a typical contact lens, is implanted in the eye during a quick. Unlike laser vision correction procedures, the EVO Visian ICL procedure is additive, meaning that no corneal tissue is removed. Worldwide, more than 1 million EVO Visian ICL lenses have been implanted.
This removable procedure creates options for a much wider range of prescriptions, from low to extremely high, while giving patients a quality of vision that is sharper, clearer, and more vivid than that what one can achieve with glasses or contacts.

It’s simple! Since the lens sits in, not on your eyes, there is no daily maintenance as with traditional contact lenses and no concern of problems or restrictions from hobbies you love like swimming.
“It changes your whole life – really! I’m all about convenience, and this makes your life more convenient. The best thing for me is knowing that when I go abroad for mission trips I don’t have to worry about the need for clean water or the restrictions that glasses and contacts bring. I can just wake up and GO!”

How is the EVO Visian ICL Lens Procedure Performed?
Vision correction with the EVO Visian ICL is an outpatient procedure that typically takes 15-20 minutes. After an initial free consultation with one of our highly trained doctors to determine that the EVO ICL is right for you, you will schedule your procedure. On the day of the procedure, your eyes will be numbed with an anesthetic eye drop and your refractive surgeon will implant the ICL between the iris (colored part of the eye) and the natural lens. Your surgeon will likely schedule a follow-up appointment the same day as the procedure.
Can the EVO Visian ICL Lens be Removed?
Yes; the EVO Visian ICL is intended to provide permanent vision correction, but it can be removed or upgraded by your surgeon.
Will I be able to feel the EVO Visian ICL Lens?
No, patients should not feel the lens as it does not adhere to any structures within the eye and does not move once in place.
Will other people be able to see the EVO Visian ICL Lens?
No, the Visian EVO lens is placed behind your iris where only your eye doctor will be able to detect it.
Are there any risks with the EVO Visian ICL Procedure?
Any medical procedure has certain risks associated with it. Potential complications of the EVO ICL procedure, although rare, include inflammation, an increase in eye pressure, or the need for an additional procedure, like an ICL exchange. While these potential risks are mitigated as much as possible, they can all typically be addressed early and without long-term side effects.

Important Safety Information
The EVO Visian ICL lens is intended to correct/reduce nearsightedness between -3.0 D up to -20.0 D and treat astigmatism from 1.0 D to 4.0 D. If you have nearsightedness within these ranges, EVO Visian ICL surgery may improve your distance vision without eyeglasses or contact lenses. Because the EVO Visian ICL corrects for distance vision, it does not eliminate the need for reading glasses, you may require them at some point, even if you have never worn them before. Since implantation of the EVO Visian ICL is a surgical procedure, before considering EVO Visian ICL surgery you should have a complete eye examination and talk with your eye care professional about EVO Visian ICL surgery, especially the potential benefits, risks, and complications. You should discuss the time needed for healing after surgery. Complications, although rare, may include need for additional surgical procedures, inflammation, loss of cells from the back surface of the cornea, increase in eye pressure, and cataracts. You should NOT have EVO Visian ICL surgery if your doctor determines that 1) the shape of your eye is not appropriate, 2) you do not meet the minimum endothelial cell density for your age at the time of implantation, 3) you have moderate to severe glaucoma, 4) your vision is not stable; or 5) if you are pregnant or nursing.
