Refractive clear natural lens replacement

to achieve spectacle independence

In this procedure the ageing natural lens of the eye is removed and is replaced with a special permanent intraocular lens implant (IOL) which allows spectacle free distance and near vision. 

This can be an alternative to laser eye surgery in individuals over 45 years of age. 

Spectacle independence obtained by laser eye surgery is not permanent as this is lost when one develops cataract with age, however unlike laser eye surgery in refractive clear lens replacement, the improvement in spectacle independent vision is permanent. One may develop posterior capsule opacification after a few years which can affect spectacle independence achieved after refractive clear lens replacement but this can easily be corrected by a five minute painless laser procedure.

Private Eye Surgery consultants have been doing Refractive Clear Lens Replacement for more than 10 years. There are different types of premium intraocular lenses available which can be used to achieve good spectacle free distance and near vision.
