Eye Doctors get EVO ICL

Eye Doctors Choose EVO ICL For Vision Correction

Dr. Sarah Bui, a native of New Orleans, is a recent graduate of Rosenberg School of Optometry. She struggled with contact lenses for a long time and had really bad dry eye that she described as feeling as though she had an eyelash in her eye and used eye drops hourly.

But, it wasn’t until she got into a car accident that she decided that she couldn’t put off getting vision correction any longer. “The moment that I realized that I wanted to get ICL refractive surgery was when I got into a car accident and my glasses fell off because the airbags deployed and I wasn’t able to see that the car was smoking. I wasn’t able to see if I was okay or if my dog in the back was okay. It was a really scary time to not be able to see.”


The ICL Surgery Process


After her consultation, her doctors determined that she was a great candidate for EVO ICL surgery. She scheduled her surgery within the same week and was able to open her eyes right after the procedure and see without glasses or contacts! And, just one day after her EVO ICL procedure she was seeing at 20/15, which is better than 20/20!  “If I ever were to be in an accident, then I will be able to get to safety or help anyone else in a situation like that.” Dr. Bui loves to travel and is excited to not have to worry about contacts, solutions, or her glasses anymore! “Getting to see the world without my glasses is going to be new and interesting”.


What is EVO ICL Surgery?


With EVO ICL surgery, an ICL (Implantable Collamer Lens)  is inserted behind the iris. This is between the natural lens and the colored part of the eye. The goal of this procedure is to change the eye’s focusing power. People usually do this to eliminate the need for eyeglasses or contact lenses. An ICL procedure is commonly used to treat moderate to severe myopia (nearsightedness) and/or astigmatism.
