Lens Replacement

     Lens Replacement refers to replacing the natural crystalline lens that sits behind the iris (the colored part of the eye). This can be a great option for those wanting to be free from reading glasses, and those with large prescriptions (especially those who are very farsighted). Lens Replacement is essentially cataract surgery before cataracts ever develop!

     Here is an overview of the process but it’s important to know the specifics of your surgical plan may vary.    


     We take all the measurements we need for any vision correction procedure at your consultation. It’s important to stay out of soft contact lenses for at least five (5) days and three (3) weeks for rigid contact lenses. If you have special contact lenses, let us know when you schedule your consultation.


     We take great care to make sure there is no discomfort at any point of the procedure. We first use a laser to perform some steps of the procedure before moving to a different room where the rest of the procedure is performed. We make two very small openings in the cornea (the clear part at the front of the eye), remove the natural crystalline lens, and insert a new lens in the same capsule where the old lens was. Both eyes are completed on the same day and the procedure itself usually takes about 15 minutes. 


     After the procedure, you will have drops to take and will need to take it easy for a week. This means no lifting, straining, submerging your head in water, or touching/rubbing your eyes. We will see you one day, one week, and one month after surgery.
