Refractive Lens Exchange
Refractive lens exchange is intraocular refractive surgery. Lens implants are used by the exact same procedure as in cataract surgery in order to treat hyperopia, myopia, astigmatism, and even presbyopia. The variety and sophistication of lens implants, and their ability to be customized to each individuals needs, have led to the growing interest and acceptance of refractive lens exchange as an excellent option for treating many types of refractive errors, allowing people to be less dependent on glasses and contact lenses. Many individuals who are not candidates for laser vision correction prove to be good candidates for refractive lens exchange.
