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 (also called Clear Lens Exchange) refers to removing the natural lens of the eye, and replacing it with an artificial implant. This is similar to cataract surgery, without a cataract (cloudy lens). Fortunately, modern advanced technology implants can provide distance, intermediate, and near vision.
If you have been told that you were not a candidate for Laser Vision Correction, either your corneas were too thin, or that Laser Vision Correction would not correct your presbyopia, this may an option for you.
Reduce Your Dependence on Glasses with RLE (myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and presbyopia)
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.
