Laser vision correction is an alternative to glasses and contact lenses that can help you see more, naturally. The concept behind laser vision correction is simple—reshaping the front of the eye to change its focusing power. Laser eye surgery has now developed to the point where not only can it provide you with the same vision that glasses and contact lenses do, but in many cases, can provide you with an improvement on what glasses and contact lenses provide.
These lenses are placed inside the eye without the natural lens being removed. One can think of them as an implantable contact lens.
Phakic IOLs are clear implantable lenses that are surgically placed either between the cornea and the iris (the colored portion of your eye) or just behind the iris, without removing your natural lens. Phakic lenses enable light to focus properly on the retina for clearer vision without corrective eyewear.
Clear Lens Exchange (CLE) can be used to treat Short-sightedness, Long-sightedness, Presbyopia and Astigmatism. There have been some very exciting advancements in IOL (intra ocular lens) technology that now make different options available to you. CLE is also known as Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE). RLE surgery requires the implantation of an IOL to restore vision. There are many options available to choose the power of the IOL in order to provide a specific visual performance.
Presbyopia is difficulty reading up near with age. When light rays enter the normal eye, they are focused at a single point on the retina, located at the back of the eye thanks to the lens inside the eye changing shape (accommodating). The cornea (the clear portion at the front of the eye) and the lens inside the eye bend or ‘refract’ the light rays so that they focus at the correct point. As we age the lens becomes less elastic and the light cannot focus on the retina any more and it seems that our arms are becoming too short. This is when people start using reading glasses.
