Refractive Lens Exchange

Summary

Refractive Lens Exchange

This procedure is most commonly performed for patients over the age of above 50 years old. This procedure is exactly the same as cataract surgery, but is done before cataracts form, when the lens begins to stiffen with age and causes presbyopia (the inability to read without glasses due to aging of the eyes). The lens inside the eye is exchanged using Modern Micro-incision Surgery and a new lens is inserted. The lens inside the eye is adapted to the patient's eye measurements and lifestyle. Since almost any level of long or short sight and astigmatism can be corrected, refractive lens exchange is commonly used as an alternative to laser eye treatment or other implant techniques.
