Refractive lens exchange (RLE) is a surgical procedure where the patient’s own crystalline lens is removed and replaced with an artificial lens to achieve less dependence from glasses or contact lenses. The surgery is the same to that performed for cataract removal. Once RLE is performed the patient will no longer need to worry about cataract surgery in the future.
An intraocular implant procedure for patients who do not have advanced cataracts. This option can be combined with our LEAP lenses.
Of course, we still offer the most advanced Custom Intralase All-Laser Vision correction procedures.
