Home Eye Care Services Refractive Lens Exchange

What is Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE)?

RLE your natural lens is replaced with an artificial intraocular lens. This procedure has served as a suitable alternative for patients who cannot get LASIK due to certain factors like age, prescription, dry eye, or early cataracts. Our expert team of surgeons at Swagel Wootton in Arizona has performed this procedure successfully on numerous patients with great results.

RLE is most similar to the cataract procedure, where the eye’s natural lens is replaced with an advanced technology lens to correct things like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Bonus: having RLE means you won’t develop cataracts!
