What is refractive lens surgery?
Refractive lens exchange [RLE] has the potential to improve your vision signiﬁcantly, leaving you with less or even no reliance on glasses and contact lenses.
The process replaces your eye's clear natural lens with an artiﬁcial intraocular lens (IOL) to correct your vision focusing and achieve sharper focus, reducing the need for glasses. The procedure is pretty much identical to cataract surgery. The diﬀerence is in the lens being replaced, rather than cloudy due to a cataract.
