Chicago Vision Correction Procedures
Today's life-changing procedures make it possible to improve your vision to 20/20—or better.
EVO ICL™ (Implantable Collamer Lens)
EVO ICL™ (Implantable Collamer Lens) surgery involves putting an artificial lens in the eye. Unlike RLE, the natural lens is not removed, and the artificial lens is placed between the natural lens and the iris.
EVO ICL™ can correct nearsightedness and astigmatism. It is sometimes referred to as an implantable contact lens.
Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK)
Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) is another type of refractive laser eye surgery that corrects nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
This surgery removes the outer corneal layer so it is a good option for people with thin corneas who may not be candidates for LASIK.

LASIK is a life-changing procedure with incredibly high patient satisfaction rates (over 95 percent), allowing Chicago residents clear vision for years to come. Most patients don’t need corrective lenses, such as glasses or contacts, following LASIK.
During the procedure, your surgeon will use a laser to reshape your cornea, allowing light to refract correctly so your vision is clear. LASIK can correct various refractive errors, including myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism.
Serious complications from LASIK are exceedingly rare, allowing patients to enjoy clear vision without issues.
If you need LASIK in Chicago, look for a surgeon who has performed thousands of surgeries and has access to the latest LASIK technology. You’ll start with an assessment to gauge whether you are a good candidate for LASIK.
