Many things change as time passes, and vision is one of them. The aging process affects the clarity and quality of vision. For many years senior people admitted that they need to depend on eye glasses, reading glasses or bifocals and believed that they just can’t do anything about it. But because of new generation of eye treatment and technology, everything was changed. Now it’s possible to improve vision people whose age over 50 both to the level that can see far and reading without depending on eyeglasses. Age wasn’t prevent you from achieve clear focus anymore. The Bright View Center introduces Refractive Lens Exchange.
Refractive Lens Exchange, also known as RLE, REFLEX, PRELEX or Lensectomy, is commonly referred to as clear lens extraction or presbyopic lens correcting intraocular surgery. RLE is an emerging type of refractive surgery very similar to cataract surgery.
Like many other types of refractive surgery, including LASIK eye surgery, Refractive Lens Exchange corrects nearsightedness and farsightedness. The desired refractive result is achieved with the insertion of a lens implant known as an IOL. Refractive Lens Exchange is a great option for an ophthalmologist to utilize when vision problems extend beyond the limits of lasers. For example, if a patient is too nearsighted but also has a reading issue, one of these new multifocal lenses may be a good option. Prior to the advent of the multifocal lens refractive surgeons often performed monovision LASIK or simply just corrected the myopic disorder and then the patient just required glasses for reading.
