Tersigni Vision, a vision correction clinic in Lake Oswego, OR, has recently published an article on their website that describes the EVO ICL (Implantable Collamer Lens), which is also called implantable contact lenses. The article explains the procedure for the EVO ICL, who is the ideal candidate, the benefits, and answers questions often asked by prospective patients.

The EVO ICL is much like the usual external contact lens that is worn to correct one’s vision, but the primary difference is that the lens is implanted inside the eye. The result that the natural lens remains intact and no corneal tissue has to be removed. The ICL is positioned next to the natural lens and is hidden behind the iris. It is one of the vision correction solutions being offered by Tersigni Vision to patients in Portland and has several benefits.

Dr. Steven Tersigni, owner and founder of Tersigni Vision, says, “If you’ve considered vision correction surgery before but weren’t a candidate for other types of refractive surgery, EVO ICL may be right for you. Our experienced team at Tersigni Vision will thoroughly examine your eyes and make the best recommendation for you. Contact our office today for an evaluation to see if EVO ICL is the vision correction solution you’ve been dreaming of for years. You have choices when it comes to correcting your vision in Portland. Let our experienced team at Tersigni Vision help you find the perfect solution for your eyes. Don’t let glasses and contacts hold you back any longer.”

EVO ICL offers several benefits, such as: clearer vision without having to wear contact lenses or glasses; better night vision; long-term, permanent solution; short 15-minute procedure; removable; less dry eye, compared to wearing an external contact lens; built-in UV protection; FDA approved; short recovery time; minimally invasive; and no need for maintenance, unlike external contact lenses.

Meanwhile, Dr. Tersigni has expertise in the use of EVO ICL implantable lenses for vision correction. In fact, he was the first US physician to have the EVO ICL procedure done for his own vision correction. To be eligible for EVO ICL, the patient has to be between the ages of 18 and 50 years old. The procedure can be completed, on the average, in less than 15 minutes, and there is minimal recovery time. It has a 99 percent patient satisfaction rate and considered to be an excellent alternative for vision correction.

EVO ICL is a cutting-edge refractive solution that can be used as a safe alternative to LASIK and other surgeries to correct myopia or nearsightedness with or without astigmatism. A phakic intraocular lens is implanted into the eye and it doesn’t need regular removal like a conventional contact lens. It is considered to be additive because no tissue is removed from the eye, unlike with LASIK surgery. And the ICL lens can used to correct a wide variety of vision errors, thus providing a vision that is clearer, sharper, and mor vivid. The ICL is made from advanced soft material that is made up of 100 percent biocompatible collagen copolymer.

Dr. Steven Tersigni, the founder and owner of Tersigni Vision, graduated cum laude from the University of Oregon and he obtained his medical degree and master’s degree in public health from Tulane University’s School of Medicine in New Orleans. He then went on to complete his internship at the Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane, Washington, and then his ophthalmology residency at the Ira G. Ross Eye Institute in Buffalo, NY. This was followed by his fellowship in anterior segment and refractive surgery under the mentorship of world-renowned vision correction surgeon, Dr. Y. Ralph Chu at the Chu Vision Institute in Minneapolis, MN. It was at this particular time in his training that Dr. Tersigni became knowledgeable in the full spectrum of vision correction solutions. He worked for a certain length of time at one of the top vision correction centers in the US before he finally founded Tersigni Vision.
