Lens Implants / Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE)

Sometimes known as PRELEX (Presbyobic Lens Exchange), clear lens surgery or refractive lens surgery, this is an operation whereby the natural lens in the eye is removed and replaced with an intraocular lens implant.

Presbyopia is the normal ageing process of the eye. When one reaches the age of 40 years, the ability to focus for near diminishes. Refractive lens exchange offers an attractive option for the patients who want both distance and near vision, reducing the need for reading glasses.
