Lens Replacement for Presbyopia
Refractive Lens Exchange for Presbyopia
If you are over the age of 45 and interested in correcting your vision, then the elective procedure called Refractive Lens Exchange surgery may be a great option for you! As we age, everyone develops presbyopia, making it difficult to see objects up close. Refractive Lens Exchange replaces the eye’s natural lens with an artificial lens to reduce the overall prescription and improve the range and focus of vision. It is basically cataract surgery done for the purpose of correcting vision even when no cataract is present. We offer premium intraocular lenses including the FDA approved ReSTOR, nanoFLEX and Toric that can reduce or eliminate your dependency on glasses or contacts. The ReSTOR multifocal lens corrects vision at all ranges (near, intermediate and distance). The nanoFLEX is a blended vision and takes monovision correction to a whole new level. The Toric lens is stigmatism correcting intraocular lens that corrects vision at one distance.
At the Eye Center of Texas all Clear Lens Exchange procedures are performed using the LenSx Laser. Our doctors and counselors will help guide you to the options that work best to suit your lifestyle.
