Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) is the next frontier in vision correction where the near vision that has degraded with age is restored while also correcting the distant vision. The smart lenses utilized during this surgery allows the eye to focus at almost all distances. This life-changing surgery is designed to last the entire lifetime. RLE represents a culmination of more than 50 years of eye surgery.
The advancements 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 devices, and laser technology, allow fast, safe, and comfortable surgical process. Finally, the invention of smart lenses that very closely simulate the functions of the human eye makes this form of surgery nothing short of a miracle.
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.
