Refractive & Clear Lens Exchange

What is lens exchange surgery?

In refractive or clear lens surgery, sometimes also called ‘lens replacement surgery’, a consultant ophthalmic surgeon replaces the eye’s natural lens with an artificial clinical lens. This new lens will have a specific power or prescription to help resolve common focusing or ‘refractive’ conditions. It is a similar process to cataract surgery, in which the eye’s cloudy lens is replaced.

At The Edinburgh Clinic, a premium multifocal lens option is available, which offers patients excellent vision at all distances, under all lighting conditions, day and night, and can result in clear vision without the requirement for spectacles.
