If you’re over 40, chances are you’ve found yourself squinting to see things close. Maybe you’ve even purchased some dime store readers. If that’s the case, you’re experiencing the onset of presbyopia, and you’re not alone. Everyone experiences it over the age of 40, regardless of how good their prior vision was.
For many people, the frustration of reading glasses is simply too much to bear. If this sounds like you, then you may be a great candidate for one of our lens replacement procedures.
Called Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE), lens replacement surgery is identical to cataract surgery, the only difference being that the natural lens removed has not yet begun developing the cloudiness that comes with cataracts. With RLE surgery, your clear lens is removed and replaced with one of our premium Lifestyle lenses. These lenses are customized for your vision needs and provide permanent vision correction to eliminate or reduce the need for glasses and contacts!
RLE and Cataracts
Because cataracts affect the lens of the eye, lens replacement surgery preemptively takes care of the condition, so you won’t develop cataracts as you age. RLE can also be performed if you have the early onset of cataracts and want to eliminate that condition before it worsens.
If you’re tired of glasses, contacts and reading glasses, and want to learn more about Lens Replacement Surgery, schedule your Vision Consultation today. We’ll provide you with all the exams and answer all your questions to determine if lens replacement is the solution to your vision correction needs.
