Say goodbye to glasses and contracts with clear lens extraction surgery

Minimal waiting times and exceptional eye care at Midland Eye

What is clear lens extraction surgery?
Clear lens extraction (CLE), also known as refractive lens exchange (RLE) or lens replacement surgery is a type of vision correction surgery. It is used to treat short-sightedness (myopia) and long-sightedness (hyperopia) and is designed to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses. It is most commonly used by people over 45 years of age.

What happens during clear lens extraction surgery?
During clear lens replacement surgery, the eye’s natural lens is removed and replaced with a man-made intraocular lens, to change the focusing power of the eye. It is essentially the same surgical procedure as cataract surgery, which is carried out on millions of people each year. But in clear lens extraction, the eye’s natural lens is not clouded. State-of-the-art ultrasound instruments are used to measure your eye for the correct lens power, taking your lifestyle and activities into consideration. These custom measurements are entered into sophisticated formulae to calculate your personal implant power.

The benefits of clear lens extraction surgery are that:

  • the normal shape and thickness of the cornea remains unchanged
  • it provides stable vision and the results last indefinitely
  • the need for cataract surgery in the future is eliminated
  • it enables people with mild cataracts to have vision correction surgery
  • patients recover rapidly from the procedure
  • it may be a better option than LASIK, PRK, LASEK refractive surgery for people with presbyopia and high hyperopia (far sightedness).

Lens replacement surgery usually takes about 15 minutes and is performed on an outpatient basis.
