what is RLE?
Refractive lens exchange is not new. For over 60 years cataract patients have enjoyed the visual freedom that lens implants produce.
What is new is how we think about when we might choose to replace our natural lense, before it develops as a cataract.
The average age of cataract removal in the United States is 74. Many people often their 50’s and 60’s electively choose to have lens removal and lens implant before the development of cataracts. This is because it is often a superior way to achieve a persons best vision, and eliminate any possibility of future cataracts developing.
The lens implants that are available to patients are wide ranging and amazing. Come learn how RLE may be the best thing to happen to vision correction.
