Freedom from Glasses and Contact Lenses

Refractive lens exchange (RLE), also known as clear lens extraction (CLE), uses the well known and established technique of cataract surgery to correct refractions in patients without cataracts.

As with any refractive eye surgery, please schedule an assessment to determine if you are a candidate for this procedure.

What is RLE?

Laser refractive eye surgeries, like LASIK and PRK, require the reshaping of your cornea with the use of an excimer laser. However, refractive lens exchange is similar to cataract surgery where the ophthalmologist removes the natural lens of your eye and replaces it with a new intraocular lens (IOL) in the correct prescription to eliminate your refraction, providing you with clear vision.

What Are IOLs?

Intraocular lenses are the real star when it comes to RLE surgeries, and depending on the type of refractive error you have, we offer a host of different IOLs to make sure you achieve the best vision possible. Some IOLs we offer include, but are not limited to:

  • Monofocal IOLs. Also known as standard IOLs, these single focus IOLs can help improve your vision after RLE surgery. Depending on your prescription, you might still need to use glasses for reading or seeing far distances afterwards; however, your prescription may be reduced after the surgery.
  • Aspheric IOLs. Aspheric IOLs can help mitigate problems with glare and improve your overall visual quality.
  • Toric IOLs. Toric IOLs are designed to correct astigmatism.
  • Multifocal IOLs. Multifocal IOLs are designed to help improve your vision at all distances, including correcting presbyopia, reducing your dependence on glasses and contacts.
