Refractive Lens Exchange is surgical procedure where your eye’s natural lens is replaced with an artificial one in order to reduce your dependence on glasses and/or contact lenses. Though artificial lenses have been traditionally used in cataract surgery, the advancements of this newer technology can now improve a patient’s distance and/or near vision. RLE can be an excellent alternative for patients who are not good candidates for LASIK vision correction.
The Refractive Lens Exchange procedure requires a very small incision made at the base of the cornea and is typically completed in about 20 to 25 minutes.
There are several advantages to the refractive lens exchange procedure, including:
- Quick visual recovery
- Permanent results without the use of a laser
- Eliminates the need for cataract surgery in the future
- Eliminates the dependence on glasses and contact lenses
