Refractive Lens Exchange, commonly known as RLE, caters to the patients who are not eligible for LASIK or other types of laser vision correction procedures. It involves removing the natural lens of the eyes and replacing it with an advanced intraocular lens implant.

The following are the benefits of RLE.

  • It reduces the dependency on the corrective eyewear.
  • It is beneficial for patients suffering from more refractive errors.
  • This procedure sometimes works as an alternative to LASIK and PRK.
  • It eliminates the chances of developing cataracts.
  • Does not require extensive recovery time.
