Joe Jonas on “Life Changing” Procedure to Correct Vision

Episode 263,  Sep 28, 09:41 PM

Joe Jonas is seeing the world a whole lot clearer now. The singer, songwriter, and actor has teamed up with STAAR Surgical to introduce what he says has been a life-changing new procedure, called EVO ICL to help the vision problems he’s had since he was a kid. He decided to get the surgery around a year ago after speaking with his doctor. “I can be a bit nervous when it comes to things like this,” he told us.

But after having many conversations with his doctor he was comforted. Jonas recalled his doctor saying, "I just will ask you not to smile too much because you'll see better than you've ever seen. He’s right. I genuinely feel like I was given bionic eyes and I’m waiting for the Marvel Avengers to call me any day now.”

The FDA-approved EVO Visian ICL lenses are designed for the correction of myopia (which is the need for distance vision) and astigmatism, which causes blurred vision at all distances and both affect millions of Americans.

How it works? A small, flexible lens is implanted in harmony with the natural eye to give you excellent sharp vision day and night without inducing dry eye syndrome. They’re different from other vision correction options, in that they can permanently correct/reduce myopia and astigmatism without removing corneal tissue and they are removable, if desired by a doctor, for added peace of mind. 

The procedure takes about 20-30 minutes for each eye. Most patients, like Jonas, experience improved vision right afterwards. “On the hour, every hour, I was seeing clearer and clearer,” he said, “I would definitely recommend EVO to anyone. Personally, I find it an incredible difference and a game changer for me and a lot easier of a lifestyle.”

So, what else is this megastar up to? “I have so many songs that I’m excited to release, so as it slowly starts to roll out, you're going to hear more and more,” he said, “I think we've been trying to do something every few weeks, if not every month. New song for the audience, not only DNCE fans, but it seems like a lot of Brothers fans seem to kind of trickle over.”

When it comes to juggling it all, the dad of two said he’s not sure if he’s figured out the balance quite yet of career versus family time. “I definitely try to take more time off than I used to and be able to be present and just be with my family. But I love what I do, so it makes it really easy.”
