What is EVO ICL?

If you’re not familiar with the EVO ICL, here’s a quick rundown. ICL stands for Implantable Collamer Lens, and it’s like having a permanent contact lens safely implanted inside your eye. It is protected from the outside environment and is not visible to others. It’s perfect for treating near-sightedness, astigmatism, and even presbyopia in the proper setting. The EVO ICL is carefully implanted behind the iris (colored part of the eye) without the need to reshape the cornea or change your natural lens, so it’s like adding a super lens to your natural one. It’s approved by the Food and Drug Administration here in the United States and even provides UV protection! It is not approved currently in the United States for use with far-sightedness.

FAQs About EVO ICL Cost in Utah

Does Insurance Cover EVO ICL?

Health insurance plans don’t cover EVO ICL or even LASIK since they consider vision correction an elective procedure rather than a necessary one. But, there’s a silver lining. If you have an HSA (Health Savings Account), MSA (Medical Savings Account), or FSA (Flexible Spending Account), you can use these funds to cover or offset the cost of your EVO Visian ICLs. Plus, as these funds are tax-free, you get to save more by using them for your procedure. In fact, you can contribute up to $3,050 of your pre-tax income annually to an FSA for vision correction. We also take cash or credit for payment.

Is Financing Available for ICL Eye Surgery?

Definitely. The cost of vision correction can be a significant factor for many people. But, why should you put off getting the EVO ICL and keep paying for expensive prescription eyeglasses and contacts, when you can make use of payment plans or financing options? At Waite Vision, we offer two popular financing options for the ICL procedure: zero down payment with 0% interest for 24 months, or zero down payment with low monthly payments and a set interest rate for 60 months. We’re happy to provide all the information you need about these fiancing options and help you get the improved vision you’ve always wanted.

Can EVO ICL Procedure Actually Save Money?

Here’s a perspective shift: vision correction with the EVO ICL will actually save you money in the long run. A one-time investment can save you tens of thousands over your lifetime on eyeglasses and contact lenses. Without vision correction, you could end up spending more than $45,000 on eye care over your lifetime. Factoring in taxes and inflation, annual prescriptions for glasses can easily surpass $300 per pair, and contacts can push that price even higher. This doesn’t even account for the cost of contact lens solution, fittings, prescription adjustments, and supplies. By opting for an EVO ICL procedure, you’re not just saving money, you’re investing in a lifetime of clear vision.
