Lens replacement surgery in a nutshell:
- reliable and safe procedure
- cataract will not return
- stable, lifelong results
- improved colour vision
Eye lens replacement
Refractive Lens Exchange or lens replacement surgery provides an alternative to eye laser surgery. During the procedure, the natural lens of the eye is removed and replaced with an advanced lens implant. This lens implant corrects farsightedness and eliminates the need for reading glasses.
Laser surgery vs implants
Most patients under the age of 50 opt for eye laser surgery to correct their vision. Lens implants are very effective in patients over 50 years of age. We correct both nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism, ensuring sharp distance vision.
No more reading glasses!
Between the ages of 40 and 50, the natural lenses of your eyes become rigid, creating a need for reading glasses. Refractive lens exchange may be a solution for you. In most cases, we use a multifocal lense. Not only do these lenses correct distance and near vision like bifocal lenses do, they also correct intermediate vision (computer screen distance).
Benefits of lens refractive lens exchange
Refractive lens exchange is a painless outpatient procedure lasting approximately 15 minutes. It is a safe and reliable procedure that has helped millions of people, including children suffering from cataract. Lens implants last a lifetime. Moreover, they offer improved colour vision.
