Clear Lens Exchange is a procedure where your natural lens is swapped for an artificial one by an experienced Kleiman Evangelista surgeon using the most advanced surgical technology available. This is a great alternative for patients who are over 40 and may not be ideal candidates for LASIK. It’s also a great option for patients who may be developing early cataracts.
Instead of reshaping the cornea (as with LASIK), CLE is more similar to cataract surgery where the eye’s natural lens is replaced with an intraocular lens (IOL). Clear Lens Exchange is most successful when you and your Kleiman Evangelista surgeon work together to choose the lens that will best fit your vision and lifestyle goals.
