Refractive Lens Exchange

What is refractive lens exchange?

Refractive lens exchange (RLE), also known as clear lens extraction (CLE), is a surgical procedure for vision correction that replaces the natural lens of the eye with an intraocular lens. Using the same surgical techniques as cataract surgery, the clear lens of the eye is removed and replaced with an IOL to change the focusing power of the eye.

An alternative to laser vision correction, the RLE procedure avoids the need for a corneal modification that is used during the LASIK procedure, and instead uses the same procedures performed in cataract surgery.

Patients who choose to undergo refractive lens exchange have several options when it comes to the type of IOL that will be implanted into the eye. The RLE procedure uses the same IOLs used in cataract surgery and is able to treat all types of visual disorders, including farsightedness, nearsightedness, presbyopia and astigmatism. Patients are provided with a choice of the most advanced premium IOLs which will allow them to see clearly at all distances.
