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.
CLE procedures are typically performed one eye at a time, one week apart with each procedure lasting about 30 minutes. Most patients report vision improvement in just about 24 hours post-surgery. Klieman Evangeslita surgeons utilize the most advanced surgical technology to perform the procedure to provide a customized, safe procedure.
The choice of lenses for CLE makes a huge impact on the success of the procedure as a whole. Our team of experts knows to ask the right questions and work together with you to find a lens that solves your vision problems and allows you to get back to living the life you love. Let’s get you started on your journey to better sight!
While Clear Lens Exchange is a good vision correction option for all types of refractive errors, it is particularly good for patients over 40 who are looking to get out of their contacts and glasses. CLE is also a very good option for patients who may be prone to cataract development. To find out if you may be a CLE candidate, schedule a consultation with a Kleiman Evangelista expert doctor.
