Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) is the next frontier in vision correction where the near vision that has degraded with age is restored while, at the same time, correcting the distant vision.
The advances in diagnostic devices such as biometric eye scanners and ORA enable highly detailed and precise surgical planning. The advances in surgical equipment, such as Luxor Microscope, phacoemulsification ultrasound devices, and laser technology, allow fast, safe, and comfortable surgical process. Finally, the smart lenses (multifocal IOLs) closely simulate the natural human lens functions, allowing the eye to focus at almost all distances.
RLE represents a culmination of more than 50 years of eye surgery. If you are older than 40 years old and need glasses for either near or far, you may be a RLE candidate. Call for a free consultation at CCRS and see what you have been missing.
A Vision for a
Unlike laser vision correction, RLE is designed to last for a lifetime. The smart lens’ ability to focus at both far and near means that your vision will be clear at almost all distances even as you become older. Furthermore, as the aging lens is replaced with a smart lens, a cataract does not form. RLE may be the last eye surgery that you will need in your lifetime.
With the tremendous advances in diagnostic and surgical technologies, a procedure once reserved to treat vision loss from cataracts has become an elective procedure to restore youthful vision. No more glasses to read, see the computer, and drive is now possible here at CCRS.
Come and experience this visual rejuvenation, which is nothing short of a miracle.
Safe and Gentle with
The procedure usually takes less than 15 minutes and is performed in the office without general anesthesia. A mild oral sedative is used to relax you, and the eye is made numb with drops. You can stay comfortable in your clothes with the recovery, usually occurring overnight. RLE is an effective procedure that can restore your youthful vision.
