Far too many people with poor vision are unaware of the benefits of laser refractive lens exchange surgery. Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Palm Beach, and Weston residents can have the surgery performed here at SightTrust Eye Institute, and it can be a truly life-changing experience. To understand the surgery, it helps to know a little bit about the anatomy of the human eye. There is a natural lens that is positioned behind the iris, and when it is young, healthy and normal, the lens is transparent and flexible.
Everyone is aware of the fact that people who reach their mid-forties often start to have difficulty seeing things up close, and they need to wear “readers” to magnify text. This condition is called presbyopia, and it is caused by the natural lens hardening with age. There are some other contributing factors in addition to aging that can change the lens, including utilization of certain pharmaceuticals.
Presbyopia is exacerbated by the appearance of cataracts that cloud the natural lens. In addition to laser refractive lens exchange surgery that we perform at SightTrust Eye Institute, we also offer highly effective laser cataract surgery.
Patients who have presbyopia, myopia, farsightedness, and/or astigmatism can benefit from laser refractive lens exchange surgery, a procedure that is sometimes called a clear lens extraction. The natural lens is removed, and a prescription refractive lens is implanted. After the laser refractive lens exchange surgery, the new lens will never lose its shape, change its prescription or cloud up in any way. That means that you will never get cataracts again!
This procedure is quick and painless, and you can go back to life as usual as soon as you leave the office. However, “life as usual” will take on a whole new meaning when you have your perfect vision back again!
