If you are not SUITABLE for LASIK or PRK, we can offer REFRACTIVE LENSECTOMY which is done with either conventional or laser cataract surgery technique.
Refractive Lensectomy is a technique is for the correction or shortsightedness and longsightedness. It is a good alternative for people over 50 and those who are not suitable candidates for LASIK which include people whose Cornea is too thin, those with extreme shortsightedness (greater than 10 Dioptres) and those with extreme longsightedness (greater than 6 Dioptres). This technique involves removing and replacing the natural lens inside the eye with an intraocular lens (IOL) of the correct focus power.
ADVANTAGES OF REFRACTIVE LENSECTOMY
As one’s own Cornea is preserved, the optical quality is often better than corneal refractive surgery. In addition, people over 40-50 years of age start to show the earliest signs of Cataract (clouding of the natural lens inside your eye) and often require surgery to remove it between the ages of 65-80. You will never require Cataract surgery (eventually everyone does if they live long enough) in the future if you have Refractive Lensectomy.
Our 2 hour free initial consultation will allow us to determine and explain which type of vision correction is the most appropriate to give you the best possible visual outcome.
