What is Clear Lens Exchange?

Clear lens exchange (also known as the clear lens replacement) is a procedure analogous to cataract surgery. Clear lens exchange has a few factors in common with modern cataract surgery, such as the following:

  • Performed under topical anesthesia
  • Performed with minimal sedation
  • Performed in an outpatient setting
  • The procedure takes about five to ten minutes and in the process the natural lens is extracted and replaced with an implant. This implant corrects for nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism.

The only difference between CLR and cataract extraction is that during cataract surgery, the cloudy lens is replaced, whereas in CLR the lens is replaced before it has a chance to turn into a cataract.

Benefits of Clear Lens Exchange

With the use of the latest generation of presbyopia correcting lenses, patients are able to achieve vision freedom at all distances, far and near. These lenses include:

  • ReSTOR
  • Tecnis Multifocal
  • Crystalens

Modern lens replacement surgery provides the ophthalmologist with a great arsenal of lens implants that allows for restoration of multifocality.  We are born with an intrinsic ability to change focus from far to near.  As we age, the mechanism responsible for this process loses its effectiveness.  This loss of accommodating ability is termed presbyopia, and eventually progresses to the point where the use of bifocal or progressive lenses is necessary.

Lens replacement procedures provide an excellent opportunity to regain the ability to focus at distance and near without the aid of glasses or contacts.  There are a number of FDA approved presbyopia correcting IOLs available.

At the Benjamin Eye Institute, we offer the full range of presbyopia correcting IOLs.  As with all premium/refractive services at BEI, the presbyopia lenses are  we backed  up with our  free LASIK enhancements for a year.
