New Technology For Aging Eyes
Refractive Clear Lens Exchange (or Clear Lens Implants)
Millions of baby boomers have many things in common; memories of the 60′s, great music, hippies and a safer time. However, they are also the generation now facing the need for bifocals, progressive lenses, reading glasses, and not wanting to accept the fact of this common aging condition, presbyopia.
Refractive clear lens exchange is a surgical procedure similar to that used for cataract removal. After taking out the eye’s natural lens, the surgeon puts an artificial lens in its place. The new lens, which is tailored to the needs of the individual, can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism and prevent the need for cataract surgery later in life.
For individuals over 45 who are considering LASIK to decrease dependence on glasses and contact lenses, refractive clear lens exchange is an excellent option worthy of serious consideration.
Eye Center of Texas is an established vision correction practice that laser eye surgery Houston patients visit to receive top-quality care and surgical results. Dr. Wade and Dr. Mayo use the latest treatment techniques and technologies, including LensX, to help patients regain and maintain their vision. Other treatments they offer include PRK, glaucoma treatment and cataract surgery. The practice also offers cosmetic treatments such as Botox and Latisse.
