Refractive Lens Exchange
Just like our bodies, our eyes age and several common problems can occur. When we’re young, the eye’s lens is soft and flexible and able to change shape to see images from different distances. With age, the natural lens in your eye hardens and loses elasticity and can no longer adjust to focus on near objects. RLE is typically performed on patients over 45 or younger patients who are not good candidates for laser corneal surgery.
