Lens Surgery

LENS SURGERY

Eyes that are not suitable for laser surgery may be suitable for either lens replacement surgery or lens insertion surgery.

Lens Replacement Surgery
The natural lens of the eye is removed and replaced by an artificial one.  This procedure is best suited to people over 45 years of age who experience difficulty reading small print.

The vision up close and in the distance can be corrected.

This procedure takes about 15 minutes per eye. 

Lens Insertion Surgery
A lens is inserted inside of the eye to correct the long distance vision.

This procedure is best suited to people less than 45 years of age, who have a very high prescription and are unable to have laser correction.

The procedure takes about 15 minutes per eye.
