While reversible, the visual results of a refractive lens exchange are permanent.


Sometimes RLE is suggested as an alternative to Laser Eye Surgery to correct eyesight when your correction is outside of the range recommended for laser eye treatment. RLE, however, can be considered as your first choice as the range of correction available with RLE includes that covered by laser surgery. Read more about refractive lens exchange
