Refractive Lens Exchange

Refractive Lens ExchangeRefractive Lens Exchange (RLE) refers to the technique by which a patient’s natural lens is removed before the development of cataracts and replaced with an implant lens.

This procedure can be done to correct presbyopia— the need for reading glasses (see ReSTOR) or in cases where the patient is not a good candidate for laser vision correction surgery (i.e. LASIK). The technique is essentially identical to cataract surgery.
