Clear Lens Exchange (alternative to Lasik in selected patients)

  • Some suitable patients with refractive errors (such as hypermetropia or high myopia) choose to have a 'clear lens exchange', which is essentially a cataract operation done at an early stage, mainly to correct significant refractive errors (just as 'Lasik' is used to correct significant refactive errors)
  • Clear Lens Exchange is often a better alternative to Lasik in selected patients and is particularly suitable for longsighted hypermetropic patients with early cataract - or sometimes even with no cataract at all. (Once treated, such patients will of course never develop cataract in the future.)
