Lens Replacement

Femtolaser Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE):

If you are looking for an alternative to wearing glasses and LASIK isn’t suitable for you, Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) might be the ideal solution. Unlike LASIK and other refractive surgeries that reshape the cornea, RLE corrects your vision by altering the focusing power of your eye through the replacement of your natural lens with a new intraocular lens (IOL).

Eligibility and Personalized Treatment

It’s important to note that not everyone who wears glasses is a suitable candidate for RLE. A detailed eye examination will determine your eligibility for the lens exchange operation. Once confirmed as a suitable candidate, we will replace your natural lens with an IOL specifically chosen to optimize your vision needs.

Cost of RLE:

We understand the importance of making an informed decision about your vision correction. That’s why we offer a free initial consultation. Once you have discussed your personalized plan with your doctor, the full cost of your RLE treatment will be confirmed. The basic treatment package will range between £999 and a maximum of £1899 per eye, including take-home medication and all post-operative appointments. The variation in price is due to the different lens options available, tailored to meet your individual needs. See pricing page for details.

 

Ideal for Individuals Over 40

RLE is particularly well-suited for individuals over 40, as this is typically when the ability to focus up close begins to decline due to the natural lens becoming less flexible. Reading glasses or bifocals are often required for close work, making RLE a beneficial vision correction option.

State-of-the-Art Technology for Precision

At our Kaskaloglu Eye Hospital, we prioritize precision and safety during the RLE procedure. We utilize advanced technologies such as ZEISS IOLMASTER 700 for calculating IOL power, Pentacam for assessing corneal surface and thickness, and I-Trace to customize the operation further. The Alcon LenSx Femtosecond laser is employed for several steps during the surgery, enhancing precision and safety.

Minimally Invasive and Quick Procedure

On the day of the surgery, we administer drops to dilate the pupil, and the operation is conducted under topical anesthesia, meaning no injections are necessary. The natural lens is removed using laser and sound wave energy through a tiny incision, eliminating the need for stitches. The entire surgery usually takes less than 10 minutes, allowing patients to return home shortly after the procedure.

Premium Intraocular Lenses for Superior Vision

We use premium intraocular lenses from top companies such as Alcon, Zeiss, Johnson & Johnson, Rayner, or SAV (Swiss Advanced Vision). This ensures our patients experience excellent post-operative vision.

Expert Eye Surgeons

Lens replacement surgery, also known as refractive lens exchange (RLE), is a procedure where your eye’s clear natural lens is removed and replaced with an artificial one to correct your vision. This surgery can effectively treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, and presbyopia. It’s similar to cataract surgery, but the lens is replaced for vision correction rather than for a cloudy lens.

Recovery time can vary from person to person. Most patients notice a significant improvement in their vision within a few days after surgery. However, it can take up to a month or so for your vision to fully stabilize. Regular follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor your progress.

Like any surgical procedure, lens replacement surgery has some risks, including infection, inflammation, retinal detachment, or an increase in eye pressure. However, these complications are rare, especially when the surgery is performed by an experienced surgeon. It’s important to discuss any concerns you have with your doctor before the procedure.
