Refractive Lens Surgery

Refractive lens surgery

Refractive lens surgery (also known clear lens exchange) is where the natural clear lens of your eye is removed and replaced with a modern intraocular lens implant (IOL).

Following the consultation, where you will be tested for your visual accommodation, you will then be measured for a purpose built lens.

During the detailed consultations, after your eye examination and scans, we will advice you on the lens options which best suits your visual requirements.

On the date of your operation, you can expect:

  • A welcoming team to help you every step of the way.
  • A dedicated nurse will be looking after you. You will have an option of general or local anesthesia or sedation with local anesthesia.
  • Before we start your surgery we will make sure you are most comfortable and assured
  • Your surgeon will remove the cataract and replace that with a acrylic lens.
  • You can expect clearer vision upon recovery. Colours will be clearer, more distinctive and will transform your vision.
