How Much Does EVO ICL Cost?

When considering an EVO ICL procedure for life-changing vision correction, one of the questions patients often ask is how much an implantable collamer lens costs.

How much does EVO ICL surgery cost?

The cost of an EVO ICL procedure can vary significantly based on the particular lens type utilized, the surgeon’s experience and skill, the location of the procedure, the patient’s present eye prescription, and other medical considerations. For the majority of people, the uv protective lenses themselves will cost between $1,000 and $1,500 per eye. The total ICL procedure price will be more once the surgeon’s time, other materials, facility fee, eye exam, and follow-up appointments are factored in. As with most things, you get what you pay for and if discounts or deals are involved you may want to ask yourself where they might be cutting corners to make up for those costs.

Making vision correction procedures affordable is our goal at Tersigni Vision. We provide a range of payment options, including financing plans with no interest. In addition to accepting cash, check, or credit cards, patients can also use their HSA (Health Savings Account), FSA (Flexible Spending Account), HRA (Health Reimbursement Account), or MSA (Medical Savings Account) to pay for their procedure. You can trust the experienced eye care professionals at Tersigni Vision to never recommend a procedure you don’t need and to always be open and upfront about our procedure costs. Intraocular lenses are an investment in your vision that will last a lifetime. Come see what you’ve been missing and experience life-changing visual perception improvements.

What is EVO ICL?

Your search for the ideal solution that gives you the visual independence you deserve could end with EVO ICL (Implantable Collamer Lens), also known as implantable contact lenses. The key distinction between EVO ICL and an external contact lens is that the EVO ICL is implanted inside the eye rather than on the outside surface, hence why it is often referred to as an implantable contact lens. You keep your natural lens and no corneal tissue is taken out as a result. The ICL is approved by the Food and Drug Administration in the United States, offers UV protection, and is positioned next to the natural lens of the eye and is covered by the iris. Many people have heard of lens replacement used for cataract surgery. However, the EVO lens is implanted when you are younger and have not yet developed cataracts, so you keep your natural lens, giving you a long lasting solution to your vision problems.

EVO ICL might be the best option for you if you’ve thought about having vision correction surgery in the past but weren’t a candidate for other vision correction procedures. At Tersigni Vision, our knowledgeable ophthalmology staff will thoroughly examine your eyes using the most advanced technology and provide you with the best advice. For a consultation to determine whether the EVO ICL is the best vision correction procedure for you, call our office now.

More FAQs about EVO ICL Cost

Can an EVO ICL procedure actually save money?

There is some good news when thinking about the EVO ICL procedure cost: the EVO ICL lens can save you money over time by offering vision correction for a one-time fee. Over the course of a lifetime, one short procedure can save thousands of dollars on eyeglasses and contact lenses.

In order to identify any additional costs, such as follow-up consultations, enhancements, eye drops, or facility fees, you should discuss prices with your eye doctor if you’re thinking about EVO ICL for nearsightedness (myopia), far-sightedness (hyperopia), astigmatism, presbyopia, or another refractive problem.

Over the course of a lifetime, you might anticipate spending upwards of $25,000 on eye care without any vision correction procedures. Once taxes and inflation are added, annual prescriptions for glasses can easily cost more than $300 per pair, and the cost of contact lenses can rise even further. Contact lens solution, contact lens fittings, eyeglass prescription adjustments, and supplies are not even included in that. EVO ICL procedures can help save money while giving permanent vision correction and eliminating the need for a corrective lens. Seeing clearly is priceless.

Can ICL eye surgery be financed?

Although vision correction eye surgery seeks to provide the finest visual results possible, the cost can influence a person’s decision. Many eye doctors provide financing solutions, enabling patients to undergo EVO ICL right now rather than delaying until they have enough money to cover the full cost (while still paying for expensive glasses and contacts). At Tersigni Vision, our most popular financing options for the EVO ICL procedure are zero down payment with 0% interest for 24 months or zero down payment with low monthly payments and a fixed interest rate for 60 months. Our professional staff would be happy to provide more details and answer any questions you may have about our financing options.

Is EVO ICL covered by insurance?

Since EVO ICL is regarded as an elective procedure, insurance typically does not cover it as a health care expense. However, there are methods to use your employee benefits to reduce the expense of the artificial lens treatment. You can utilize the money in an HSA (Health Savings Account), MSA (Medical Savings Account), or FSA (Flexible Spending Account) to defray or cover the cost of your EVO ICLs if you have one of these available through your work. Additionally, since these monies are tax-free, you save money by using these funds to pay for your procedure. Up to $3,050 in pre-tax income can be put into an FSA each year to be used for vision correction.

Does EVO ICL surgery cost more than LASIK?

EVO ICLs are usually more expensive than LASIK (Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis), but it should be noted that patients are also paying for the EVO ICL lenses, which are custom selected for their unique eyes and offer ultraviolet protection. While laser eye surgery has its own benefits, depending on the size, shape, and prescription needed for each eye, the EVO lenses are custom chosen for each patient. In fact, thousands of different configurations of the phakic intraocular lens (phakic iols) are produced by the company that makes the EVO ICL to satisfy the particular visual requirements of each patient. The independence, though, is priceless, and the one-time surgery charge is thousands of dollars less than most individuals spend on glasses and contacts over the course of a lifetime.

Feeling confident in the safety and suitability of the procedure you and your eye surgeon choose over cost is vital when thinking about EVO ICL or any vision correction option. Not everyone is a candidate for EVO ICL or its previous iteration of EVO Visian ICL, but for many people, it is the best option to achieve freedom from glasses and contacts.
