Review the following pages to learn more about any of these vision correction procedures:
- Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) is used to improve distance vision, correct astigmatism, and correct presbyopia. This procedure, which may be an alternative to LASIK, removes your eye’s natural clear lens and replaces it with an advanced artificial lens (IOL) that corrects your refractive error.
- Visian ICL® (implantable contact lenses) may be an option for those with thin corneas or a high degree of nearsightedness. Unlike the IOLs used in cataract surgery or RLE, these implantable contact lenses work with your eye’s own natural lens to correct myopia and help you to see clearly without glasses.
- Corneal Inlay is a device implanted in the cornea of one eye to improve your vision if you have presbyopia. Two types of FDA-approved corneal inlays are KAMRA® and Raindrop®.
