Presbyopia is something that happens to all of us as we age. If you have developed presbyopia it may have started around age 40. Presbyopia is a condition in which the lens of the eye loses its ability to focus, making it difficult to see objects up close. If you all of a sudden you did not need glasses and now cannot see up close you may have started to get presbyopia. This condition is not even correctable by laser vision correction. Fortunately, a surgical option called refractive lens exchange can correct this issue. Clear lens extraction is allowing patients a clear alternative to reading glasses and is capable of reducing or eliminating presbyopia by using an advanced multifocal intraocular lens implant.
What Are the Benefits of Clear Lens Extraction?
There are several advantages to the refractive lens exchange procedure, including:
- Quick visual recovery
- Permanent results without the use of a laser
- Eliminates the need for cataract surgery in the future
- Eliminates the dependence on glasses and contact lenses
