Do you experience problems with your vision and live in Calgary?
Looking for a way to permanently improve your sight?
At Clarity Laser Vision, we believe that an ICL procedure can provide an excellent visual outcome for our patients. EVO ICL, also known as the Implantable Collamer® Lens, is a type of refractive procedure to help correct common vision problems, such as myopia and astigmatism. Simply put, our procedure can be described as additive vision correction. Unlike other procedures, the EVO ICL procedure does not remove corneal tissue but works in harmony with your natural eyes. Many vision correction procedures promise an improved level of vision, but few vision correction alternatives offer the quality and features found with the ICL. These include:
Collamer is a proprietary material used exclusively by STAAR Surgical in our EVO ICL and other corrective lenses. This material consists of collagen which naturally occurs in your body. EVO ICL Collamer technology provides exceptional quality of vision.

Our procedure can be described as additive vision correction. Unlike other procedures, the EVO ICL procedure does not remove corneal tissue, but works in harmony with your natural eye.
EVO ICL patients can correct their vision with peace of mind. In the event of a major prescription change or the availability of new vision correction options, EVO ICL is completely removable, assisting our patients, together with their doctor, to make changes to keep pace with technology and their changing needs.
The EVO ICL Collamer material enables our insertion method to be minimally invasive. With only a small incision, we can optimize the procedure and recovery time dramatically. Additionally, the procedure is also painless because of the numbing medication.
By gently inserting our EVO ICL into the eye we’re able to create a barrier of UV protection. The Collamer material that makes up our EVO ICLs has unique properties that provide UV protection.
