What is EVO ICL?

EVO ICL (Implantable Collamer Lens), which is also known as an implantable contact lens, is approved by the Food and Drug Administration in the United States and could be the perfect solution that gives you the freedom from glasses and contact lenses that you deserve. The main difference between the EVO ICL and a regular contact lens is that the EVO ICL is placed inside the eye instead of on the outside surface. This is why it is often called an implantable contact lens. You keep your natural corneal intact, and as a result, no corneal tissue is removed. The ICL is placed in front of the eye’s natural lens and is hidden by the iris. This allows you to keep your natural cornea and gives you a long-term solution to your vision problems.

If you’ve thought about getting surgery to fix your vision in the past but weren’t a good candidate for other procedures, EVO ICL might be the best choice for you. At Brusco Vision, our experienced ophthalmology staff will carefully check your eyes with the latest technology and give you the best advice. Call our office now to set up a meeting to find out if the EVO Visian ICL is the best way to correct your vision.

How much does EVO ICL surgery cost?

The cost of an EVO ICL procedure can vary greatly depending on the type of lens used, the experience and skill of the surgeon, the location of the procedure, the patient’s current eye prescription, and other medical factors. Most people will pay between $1,000 and $1,500 per eye just for UV-protective lenses. When you add up the surgeon’s time, other materials, facility fee, eye exam, and follow-up appointments, the total cost of an ICL procedure will be higher. As with most things, you get what you pay for, and if there are discounts or deals, you might want to think about where they might be cutting corners to save money.

At Brusco Vision, our goal is to make eye surgery more affordable without compromising patient safety and the expert level of care. We offer a variety of ways to pay, including interest-free payment plans. Patients can pay for their procedure with cash, check, credit card, or their HSA, FSA, HRA, or MSA. You can count on the experienced eye care professionals at Brusco Vision to never suggest a procedure you don’t need and to always be open and honest about how much a procedure will cost. Intraocular lenses are a long-term investment in your eyesight. Come see what you’ve been missing and experience life-changing improvements to your vision.

More FAQs about EVO ICL Cost


Since EVO ICL is considered an elective procedure, health insurance usually doesn’t pay for it. But there are ways to use your employee benefits to lower the cost of the surgical procedure for an artificial lens in the Northern Virginia and D.C. area. If you have a Health Savings Account (HSA), Medical Savings Account (MSA), or Flexible Spending Account (FSA) through your DMV area job, you can use the money in it to help pay for or cover the cost of your EVO Visian ICLs. Also, because these funds are not subject to taxes, you save money by using them to pay for your procedure. Each year, you can put up to $3,050 in pre-tax income into an FSA to pay for eye care.


EVO ICLs are usually more expensive than LASIK (Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis), but it’s important to remember that patients are also paying for the EVO ICL lenses, which are customized specifically for their eyes and offer ultraviolet protection. Even though laser eye surgery has its own benefits, the EVO lenses are chosen for each patient based on the size, shape, and prescription they need for each eye. In fact, the company that makes the EVO ICL makes thousands of different kinds of intraocular lenses (phakic IOLs) so that each patient can see as well as they need to. You can’t put a price on the freedom gained from EVO ICLs, and the one-time surgery cost is much less than what most people spend on glasses and contacts over the course of a lifetime.

If you’re considering EVO ICL or any other vision correction option, it’s important to prioritize your peace of mind regarding the safety and suitability of the treatment over any financial considerations you may have. EVO ICL is not right for everyone, but for many people, it is the best way to eliminate the need for glasses or contacts and say goodbye to blurry vision.


When thinking about how much the EVO ICL procedure costs in Washington D.C. and the DMV, there is some good news. The EVO Visian ICL lens can save you money over time because it is a one-time fee for a corrective lens that provides permanent vision correction. One short procedure can save you thousands of dollars on glasses and contacts over the course of your life.

If you’re considering EVO ICL for near-sightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), astigmatism, presbyopia, or another refractive problem, you should talk to your eye surgeon about what the price includes. This will help you find out about any extra costs, such as follow-up appointments, enhancements, eye drops, or facility fees.

Eye care could cost you more than $25,000 over the course of your life, even if you don’t have any vision correction procedures. When taxes and inflation are taken into account, an annual pair of glasses can easily cost more than $300, and the price of contact lenses can go up even more. That doesn’t even cover contact lens solution, contact lens fittings, changes to eyeglass prescriptions, or supplies. EVO ICL procedures can help you save money while permanently correcting your vision and getting rid of the need for glasses or contacts. The ability to see things clearly is invaluable. Experience life-changing improvements in your visual perception and see what you’ve been missing.


A person’s choice to have vision correction eye surgery may be influenced by the cost of the procedure, despite the fact that the goal of the procedure is to deliver the best possible visual results. Many eye doctors offer payment plans so that patients can get EVO ICL right away instead of waiting until they have enough money saved up to pay for it all (while still paying for expensive glasses and contacts). A popular way to pay for the EVO Visian ICL procedure at Brusco Vision is with no down payment and no interest for 24 months or with no down payment, low monthly payments, and a fixed interest rate for 60 months. Our trained staff would be happy to tell you more about our financing options and answer any questions you may have.
