What is presbyopia?
In a person’s early 40s, a normal part of aging is that eyes gradually lose the ability to see things clearly up close, such as reading materials or cellphone screens1
1.7 billion people are defined as presbyopes globally2
In Europe, over 64 million people suffer from presbyopia, which is 84% of 45–60-year-olds3

Important Safety Information for EVO Viva ICL
Implantation of the EVO Viva ICL is a surgical procedure, and as such, carries potentially serious risks. The EVO Viva ICL is designed for the correction/reduction of up to -20 diopters (D) of nearsightedness with or without presbyopia for patients who are 21 to 60 years of age and for patients 21 years of age or older who have been treated with an intraocular lens. Before considering EVO Viva ICL surgery you should have a complete eye examination and talk with your eye care professional about the procedure, especially the potential benefits, risks, and complications. You should discuss the time needed for healing after surgery.
