Refractive Lens Exchange
Refractive lens exchange has the advantage of greatly expanding the range of refractive surgery beyond what can be achieved with other available methods. The procedure retains the normal contour of the cornea, which may enhance the quality of vision, and it may be used to treat presbyopia as well as refractive error with incorporation of multifocal and/or accommodating IOLs.
