Refractive Lens Exchange







Refractive lens exchange (RLE) is an alternative to laser vision correction. As in cataract surgery, the eye’s natural lens is removed and replaced with an artificial lens implant to provide sharper focus. The only difference is the natural lens is not clouded by cataracts. This treatment can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Lens implants are high tech marvels that can dramatically improve vision and several options are available to match your lifestyle needs. Our cataract-related videos on this page will be helpful.
