Clear Lens Extraction
Clear lens extraction is another refractive surgery option for a few select patients. It involves removal of the natural lens in the patients eye, replacing it with a correctly focused lens to overcome nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism. Essentially, it is cataract surgery done before the patient has a clinically significant cataract. Once done, the patient will not need cataract surgery in the future years. This surgical option is available to some patients who are not LASIK or PRK candidates.
