What is EVO ICL lens?
The Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) for nearsightedness and astigmatism is a refractive lens also known as a phakic IOL. “Phakic” meaning that the natural lens of the eye is in place, and “IOL” meaning intraocular lens, or a lens inside the eye. The EVO ICL is a posterior chamber implant that is introduced through a small incision in the eye and is placed behind the iris (the colored part of the eye), and in front of the natural crystalline lens in order to improve your nearsightedness and astigmatism.
EVO ICL lens has helped me to live life to the fullest with no more hesitation. I simply wake up and go about my day.

Funny thing is that as great as Dr. Kruh was; his staff was just as incredible... Would not hesitate to return if I need too.

At Vision NYC we never employ any bait-and-switch tactics. What we do provide is a complimentary one-on-one consultation with our fellowship-trained refractive surgeon Dr. Jonathan Kruh. Each patient is evaluated on an individual basis to ensure that you will achieve your BEST results.
Here are some of the reasons why we will NEVER advertise LASIK at a "bargain basement" price:
We offer ONLY state of the art blade-free Lasik flap creation. This minimizes complications associated with a blade cutting across the cornea. If you were to have a surgery on your eyes, wouldn’t you choose the precision that can only be found with bladeless technology? Always ask whether the LASIK flap creation is done with or without a blade.
We offer the Contura treatment and Iris Registration technology. This technology improves night vision, reduces glare and halo, and enhances the accuracy of astigmatism correction. Often discount LASIK facilities will only provide Traditional Laser Treatment at their discount price.
We allocate staff and resources to stay at the forefront of the refractive field. This includes outcomes tracking, constant staff training, and recertification. We do not cut corners to cut our prices.
Your LASIK screening includes a full comprehensive eye exam to screen for any eye conditions that you may have, or have not yet been diagnosed with.
Our Chief Surgeon, Dr. Jonathan Kruh is one of a handful of surgeons in the metropolitan area which has received a full surgical fellowship in Laser Vision Correction. In addition to his patient first attitude, he enjoys teaching the next set of young ophthalmologists at his former ophthalmology residency, New York Medical College.
Although Dr. Kruh ensures a smooth post-operative period, his patients always have direct access to his cell phone after their procedure in case questions should arise.
You only have one set of eyes, and you deserve the very best. Never discount your own eyes, your vision is worth it!
TOP LASIK MYTHS
Ask us anything.
"Can any LASIK surgeon provide me with the same care and outcome?"
Don't trust your eyes to just anyone. You have only one pair of precious eyes and selecting your surgeon is not just important for ensuring competency, but most importantly, it is to ensure that you are in good, experienced hands that are able to manage any unexpected events that may happen, no matter how rare they might be. Unlike most LASIK centers the surgeon sees you throughout almost all your post-operative visits and you always have direct access to him if need be.
"Can I go blind?"
Millions of people have undergone LASIK since the early nineties. When strict parameters are followed, blindness should not be part of the feared risks. Although LASIK and LASEK are not procedures without risk, contact lenses do carry similar risks to the eye, such as severe corneal infections
"Is the procedure painful?"
No, only topical anesthesia is required. The procedure is very well-tolerated by most patients, and we give you an oral medication to help you relax prior to the procedure. The operation takes about minutes for both eyes. The total time at the surgical facility the day of the procedure will be about 1.5 hours. You should plan for a car ride home with accompaniment to guarantee your safety home.
"LASIK does not fix astigmatism."
Given today’s advancement in laser technology most forms of astigmatism can be successfully treated with laser eye surgery.
"Will I have to take much time off from work after the procedure."
Contrary to what many people know about LASIK surgery, most LASIK patients can drive into the office by themselves for their post-operative day #1 visit without glasses or contact lenses. Most patients after LASIK surgery return back to work within 1 day of the operation. Patient’s undergoing PRK require a longer healing time often necessitating a leave from work for 3-4 days post-operation.
"I am afraid about halos, glare, and worsening dry eye after LASER surgery."
Although some patients report mild to moderate nighttime halos, glare, and dry eyes within the 1st few weeks after surgery, for the vast majority of the patients, these issues resolve after 1-3 months. We perform extensive preoperative screening tests before your laser surgery to help evaluate your risks for such issues. If you are a candidate for LASIK, our expert medical team will explain any risks you face before scheduling surgery.
"I'm too old for LASIK!"
Anyone over 21 years of age, with a stable prescription is a potential candidate for Refractive Surgery (LASIK or PRK). Stability of your prescription and the overall health of your eyes are the most important factors in ensuring a successful outcome. Patients which are older (>40 years) may choose a monovision treatment to allow for the highest chance of spectacle-free independence for both distance and near tasks.
