What is refractive lens replacement?

Refractive lens exchange is very similar if not identical to modern cataract surgery. It involves replacing your natural lens with a new artificial intraocular lens that lasts for life. The lens of the eye is found behind the iris, the coloured structure of the eye that gives us our green or brown eyes, and is normally clear and transparent.

As we get older the lens loses its natural elasticity and ability to focus, a condition called presbyopia or dysfunctional lens syndrome.

Refractive lens exchange can correct underlying refractive errors of the eye, such as short-sightedness, long-sightedness and astigmatism, and provides a good opportunity to reduce or eliminate your need for both distance and reading glasses.

What are the benefits of refractive lens replacement?

  • Refractive lens exchange, with the appropriate choice of lenses, can achieve freedom from glasses in 4 out of 5 patients.

  • It can improve the quality of your vision, restoring its natural sharpness.

  • It allows you to enjoy an active lifestyle more easily.

  • It eliminates the risk of infection that is associated with wearing contact lenses.

  • It provides the opportunity to reduce or eliminate your need for both distance and reading glasses. This refractive correction is achieved with the use of a customised lens that can compensate for any astigmatism you may have and also focus your eyes clearly for both distance and near.

  • It eliminates the need for cataract surgery in later life.
