Advanced Lens Exchange at ReVision
What is an Advanced Lens Exchange?
Advanced Lens Exchange, also known as a Refractive Lensectomy, corrects nearsightedness or farsightedness by replacing the eye’s natural lens. A synthetic intra-ocular lens (IOL) designed with the Patient’s prescription is implanted.
How it Works
- After making a small incision in your eye, your Surgeon will remove the natural lens.
- Your IOL is inserted into the lens capsule and gently moved into position.
What to Expect
The procedure itself typically takes less than 20 minutes. It is not uncommon for you to have dramatically improved vision within a few hours of your procedure. Eyes are treated separately, typically two weeks apart.
