An increasingly popular treatment used to correct both distance and near vision sight imperfections. It’s also used to help people with cataracts, helping them to see the world clearly again.
Often, lens surgery is the most effective way to reduce the reliance on your glasses and contact lenses and can change your life.
There are two different types of lens surgery and the procedure that we will recommend depends upon your specific needs. The first lens replacement surgery is also known as refractive lens exchange (RLE), and the second is Phakic intraocular lens (PIOL) surgery.
At Optical Express, we offer a variety of premium lenses, so that we can provide the best solution for each patient’s individual visual requirements.
In lens replacement surgery, or refractive lens exchange, the lens of your eye will be replaced with a synthetic one, making your vision clearer and brighter. This premium lens can help to correct long sightedness, short sightedness and reading vision. It's a simple procedure with a high success rate.
Our treatment support optometrist will record your vision with and without spectacles and perform an assessment of your eye health. Eye drops will be administered, so that your eye is comfortable during surgery.
Your surgeon will gently create a small opening on the surface of your eye to get access to your natural lens. The contents of the natural lens bag are carefully removed before the premium synthetic lens is put in place.
Immediately after your treatment is performed, you will be unable to drive. Ensure you arrange transport home beforehand. You should go home to rest after your treatment, returning for treatment in your second eye if required.
