Lens Replacement Surgery, Refractive Lens Exchange, or RLE, is a procedure that addresses presbyopia, which causes the natural lens in our eyes to lose its focusing ability as we age. If laser vision correction is not a viable solution, an Advanced Technology Lens can be implanted to provide clearer vision and decrease the need for glasses or contact lenses. Additionally, Lens Replacement Surgery reduces the risk of developing cataracts in the future since the implanted artificial lens does not have the potential to develop cataracts. Bioptics, a complementary laser vision correction procedure, can be performed alongside Lens Replacement Surgery to correct any remaining refractive errors. Lens Replacement Surgery is also known as refractive lens surgery, RLE or clear lens exchange (CLE).
For individuals who are over 45 years of age and are not eligible for LASIK, lens replacement surgery could be the best option.

The primary distinction between lens replacement surgery and cataract surgery lies in their respective objectives. While both procedures involve the implantation of a synthetic lens to replace the natural lens through a small incision in the eye, cataract surgery aims to address vision impairment caused by a cloudy natural lens, while lens replacement surgery is performed to reduce dependency on glasses or contact lenses. In essence, lens replacement surgery is similar to modern cataract surgery, but with a different goal in mind.
Lens replacement surgery involves the removal of the natural lens through a surgical incision and the implantation of an artificial lens, while laser eye surgery utilizes a laser to reshape the cornea and improve vision by creating a flap in the outer layer of the eye.
Laser eye surgery is often chosen for correcting nearsightedness and farsightedness, while lens replacement surgery may be a better option for patients over 45 years of age as it can address presbyopia and prevent age-related cataracts from forming in the future.
Lens replacement surgery is a viable alternative for patients who desire to reduce their dependence on glasses. Patients above 45 years of age can benefit from lens replacement surgery.
The surgery is typically painless as the eye is numbed with anesthesia drops during the procedure.
When considering vision correction options for severe prescriptions, the most popular choice is LASIK, which can correct short- and long-sightedness as well as astigmatism, and is effective for more than 95% of all prescriptions. However, in cases of extreme prescriptions or when the corneal anatomy is abnormal, alternative options may be more suitable.
Presbyopia is a common age-related condition where the natural lens of the eye loses its ability to change shape and adjust to focus on close-up objects. As a result, people with presbyopia often experience difficulty seeing objects up close, and may need reading glasses or bifocals to correct their vision. Presbyopia typically begins to affect people in their early to mid-40s and continues to progress until around age 65.
Most people can resume work and their daily activities after three days of surgery. However, it is advised to avoid heavy lifting and strenuous activity for at least two weeks following the surgery.
Driving can be safely resumed once the legal standard is met, which is usually one week after surgery.
Hyperopia, also known as farsightedness or long-sightedness, is a common vision condition in which objects that are close to the eyes appear blurry, while objects that are far away are clearer. It occurs when the eyeball is too short or the cornea is too flat, which causes light to focus behind the retina instead of directly on it.
People with hyperopia may experience symptoms such as eyestrain, headaches, and difficulty seeing up close. Hyperopia can be corrected with glasses or contact lenses that help to focus light properly on the retina, or with refractive surgery such as laser eye surgery or lens replacement surgery. It is important to have regular eye exams to detect and correct hyperopia early, as untreated hyperopia can lead to other vision problems and complications.
