Reduce Your Dependence on Glasses with RLE
If you have strong prescription glasses and your eyes are outside the range of LASIK vision correction, RLE is an excellent option for restoring your vision.
Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) involves replacing your natural lens with a clear lens implant or IOL (Intraocular Lens). The power of this lens implant can be adjusted to compensate for the glasses prescription.
Types of Cataract Lens Implants
Standard foldable spherical monofocal implant:
This the implant covered by OHIP. It will give you distance vision, provided you have no astigmatism.
Apsheric glistening-free upgrade:
This implant will give you distance vision with upgraded optics.
This implant will reduce moderate to severe astigmatism.
This implant will give distance and near vision.
Many people who undergo cataract removal wish to be less dependent on eyeglasses after their surgery. Today, cataract patients have the choice of multifocal IOLs that can correct vision far away, up close and all distances in between.
Presbyopia-correcting IOLs offer this advantage, helping to correct both near and far vision thus greatly reducing the need for computer glasses and reading glasses.
