What Is Refractive Lens Exchange?
Our skilled team of board-certified ophthalmologists is proud to perform refractive lens exchange for patients throughout San Antonio, TX and its neighboring communities. This procedure is very much like cataract surgery except that instead of having a cloudy lens, the patient is having their natural lens replaced with an IOL (intraocular lens) to improve their vision. RLE can be a great solution for individuals with a severe refractive error (myopia or hyperopia) and who aren't eligible for LASIK or PRK. To find out if RLE could be your preferred method for improved vision, contact Focal Point Vision, and schedule a consultation.

HOW DOES RLE WORK?
After your initial evaluation to find out if you're eligible for RLE, our ophthalmologists will determine the most suitable kind of artificial lenses for your specific needs. Our team performs RLE as an outpatient procedure that typically is finished in about 10 – 20 minutes. To carry out your treatment, we will make an incredibly small incision in the corneal tissue and use specialized technology to delicately split up the natural lens and take it out. We then place your new custom lenses. Nearly all patients who choose RLE will notice an improvement in their vision in only a week.
