Refractive/Clear Lens Exchange
For many people, reading glasses are a necessary part of everyday life so they can do up-close work like using a computer or reading a book. This age-related condition (presbyopia) can be extremely inconvenient when you need a pair of glasses on hand everywhere you go for basic tasks. Others use multifocal contact lenses to correct presbyopia, which can be equally inconvenient.
What if there was a way not to place a corrective lens over your eyes but instead replace your natural lenses for long lasting vision correction? That’s exactly what a clear lens exchange procedure does!
What is Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE)?
Lens replacement surgery, also known as clear lens exchange (CLE) or refractive lens exchange (RLE), replaces the eyes’ natural lenses with an artificial implant to restore youthful vision. This procedure can correct refractive errors for those who aren’t eligible for LASIK and is also used to prevent cataracts.
The natural lens is removed during the procedure and replaced with an advanced technology intraocular lens (IOL). Most people no longer need glasses or reading glasses after RLE or only need them for specific tasks.
