Millions of people struggle every day with not only a need for distance correction, but also for help with near vision. Dysfunctional Lens Syndrome affects everyone sometime after the age of 40, and gets progressively worse over time.
What is Refractive Lens Exchange?
We all have friends and family members that have undergone cataract surgery. Refractive lens exchange is the same surgery as cataract surgery with all of the vision benefits on a patient that has yet to develop a cataract. In fact, once you have had a refractive lens exchange, you will never develop a cataract, and all of the issues associated with Dysfunctional Lens Syndrome will be a thing of the past!
At Eye LASIK Austin, we will use the highest technology available to determine the lens that matches your visual needs. These modern lenses have the ability to not only give you exceptional distance vision, but to also improve the near and intermediate vision you need on a daily basis.
Prior to the advent of these advanced accommodating, multifocal, and astigmatism-correcting intraocular lens implants, patients would undergo lens replacement with standard fixed focus (monofocal) lens implants. While these monofocal lenses were effective at improving distance vision, they did not correct near vision. Therefore, following surgery, patients would still have to wear reading glasses. Now, with the introduction of Full Focus® intraocular lens implants, patients have the opportunity to see clearly at distance, intermediate, and near.
