Refractive Lens Exchange
For those who desire independence from glasses, a refractive lens exchange may be an option. This involves removing the natural lens from the eye and replacing it with an artificial lens, much like in cataract surgery. The best candidates for refractive lens exchange are people over 50 years of age who wear glasses or full time and are motivated to decrease their dependence on glasses.
If you are considering refractive lens exchange, make an appointment to discuss if this is the right option for you.
