Refractive Lens Exchange

No more readers!

A majority of people entering their 40’s experience worsening near vision. You may notice difficulty with reading your phone, or reading a menu at a restaurant. This problem is called presbyopia and only worsens as you age. It is caused by a gradual stiffening and opacification of the natural lens inside of your eye. If you are ready to say goodbye to the hassles associated with reading glasses and bifocals, then Refractive Lens Exchange may be a great option for you. Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) involves a replacement of your natural lens with an advanced technology artificial lens which gives you a broad range of vision from near to far distance.
