Welcome to the future of ICL!

ICL stands for implantable collamer lens. The EVO ICL™ is made of collamer, which works in harmony with your natural eye, and is implanted into the eye to correct moderate to severe nearsightedness, with or without astigmatism. It doesn’t change the shape of the cornea like LASIK or PRK & can be removed it needed. The EVO ICL™ is an advanced vision-correction option that is growing in popularity with more than 2 million lenses implanted worldwide since it was approved in 2022, with a 99.4% satisfaction rate!


If you are 18 or older & nearsighted, you may be a candidate for the EVO ICL.™  This procedure is able to treat a range of patients from mid to extremely high refractive errors (-3 to -16 diopters) & is especially beneficial to those with thin corneas or who do not think they are a candidate for LASIK. It is preferable that the patient has not undergone any previous ophthalmic surgery & does not have a history of eye disease such as iritis, glaucoma, or diabetic retinopathy. We always perform a complete eye examination as part of our free vision correction consultation to determine the best option for you.

Seattle-Bellevue ICL


The EVO ICL™ is made of 100% biocompatible collagen copolymer that provides UV protection and permanent vision correction. Additionally, the EVO ICL™ procedure does not permanently alter the shape of your cornea. There is no maintenance associated with the lens, and it is intended to remain in place as long as you are satisfied with your vision. If for any reason it needed to be removed, it can be, for added peace of mind. 

Austin ICL


The EVO ICL™ is positioned behind the iris (the colored part of the eye) where it is invisible to both you & others. It stays in position by itself & does not interact with any of the structures of the eye, so you are not aware that it’s there except that you see clearly without glasses or contacts! The EVO ICL™ received approval from the FDA in 2022 for a wide range of myopic (nearsightedness) & astigmatism correction needs. Although the lens is intended to remain in place permanently, a surgeon can remove it, if needed. And because your cornea is in its natural state, you’re able to pursue other vision-correction options in the future.

What to Expect

MODERN ICL: Start to Finish

Comprehensive Exam

A comprehensive, dilated examination is the only way to know which vision correction procedure is best for you. We do this at no charge because we believe so strongly in giving patients all the information necessary to make the right treatment choice. While your exam involves comprehensive diagnostic testing, it is also our opportunity to learn more about you, your expectations, and your lifestyle. All of these factors play an important role in recommending the best procedure for you.

The complete exam can take up to 90 minutes. After all the data is collected, our doctor will examine you, discuss the procedure recommendation, and answer any questions you have. Your visit will include dilation of your pupils, which will affect your eyesight for about 4-6 hours, as you may have experienced with a routine eye exam.

YOU have questions. We have answers.

No, the laser can’t burn a hole in your eye. But it’s a good question. Find the answers to our most frequently asked questions at SHARPEVISION. Some of them may surprise you!

  • Can you tell if I’m a candidate for laser eye surgery by looking at the prescription from my optometrist?

    No, not just by looking at your prescription. Your general optometrist measures your prescription and level of astigmatism for glasses and contacts and can refer you to a LASIK provider, but they cannot confirm if you will be a candidate for laser eye surgeryTo know if you are a candidate, you need to have a complete eye exam at a LASIK provider. At SharpeVision, we use highly specific equipment to topographically map the surface of  your eyes and get multiple prescription measurements, among other things. Our refractive surgeon-trained optometrists will then discuss all the results with you and determine if you are a candidate for LASIK.

  • Which insurance plans cover some or all of the cost of laser eye surgery?

    Most insurance/vision plans do not pay towards LASIK or PRK, but we do honor the discount from EyeMed, VSP, and Davis, so that if you’re a member, your out of pocket expense will be the same. Always check with your insurance carrier or health benefits administrator before coming in for your exam. A few forward-thinking companies are currently paying for some or all of their employees’ LASIK, PRK, and ICL including The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Adaptive Biotech, and Zillow in Seattle.


  • Can your eyesight get worse after laser eye surgery?

    If your vision is worse after LASIK or PRK than it was before with glasses or contacts, it’s almost always due to dry eyes or residual prescription. Both of these are fixable with time (for dry eyes which is almost always the cause of foggy vision for a month or more after LASIK) or with additional laser to touch it up (which is necessary approximately 1% of the time and free for the first year after surgery).

  • Am I a candidate for laser eye surgery?

    With all the options we have for vision correction, the answer is probably “Yes!” The only way to know for sure which procedure(s) is right for you is by coming in for a complete eye exam at SHARPEVISION or another LASIK provider. We perform the entire exam completely free of charge. During your 90 minute exam, we will dilate and scan your eyes with specialized machines to obtain a variety of data, including your corneal shape and thickness, your precise prescription, and the health of your eyes. There are many factors that help us determine not only if you’re a candidate, but to set expectations and educate you as much as possible to help you make the best decision.
