More about RLE - Refractive Lens Exchange Abroad

Are you a suitable candidate?

Refractive lens exchange is suitable for patients over 40 years of age with disorders beyond the scope of laser eye surgery. A free evaluation by our eye surgeons is available for you in order to assess your suitability for the RLE surgery and type of lens implants.

What are benefits of refractive lens replacement?

The main advantage of RLE is to remove any number of diopters. It is also a preventive treatment - patients after refractive lens exchange are no more at risk of cataract and the risk of paroxysmal glaucoma is substantially reduced.

What surgery to choose if I dont want reading glasses?

To patients who would also like to get rid of reading glasses, we recommend the multifocal lens exchange method, which is refractive lens exchange completed with so-called multifocal intraocular lens implantation.

How is the refractive lens replacement performed?

RLE with monofocal lenses is performed in local anaesthesia. The cloudy lens is painlessly crushed with ultrasound and removed through a microincision. Our experienced eye surgeon implants a new high quality Acrysof monofocal lens.

How long does the surgery take?

Quite painlessly, RLE is performed in an ambulatory setting during which an optical element (intraocular lens) is permanently implanted in the eye. It takes about 10 minutes. The patient can leave the clinic immediately after the surgery. Next day is post-operative check up.

What methods do you offer?

The price quoted is for a standard method where a small incision is made by our experienced eye surgeon. We also offer a so called femtosecond laser assisted surgery where the incision is performed by a femtosecond laser LenSx hence achieving even greater precision and faster recovery times.

What IOL lenses are available?

We stock many types of lenses and lens implants. Most popular are Alcon Acrysof lenses and Zeiss lenses. The standard RLE is performed with Alcon Acrysof lenses. Intraocular lenses AcrySof Restor are produced by Alcon, an American company, and have been approved for use by the European Union and the USFDA.

RLE - Refractive Lens Exchange Abroad in Prague, Czech Republic, abroad also stands for monofocal lens implant, lens replacement or clear lens extraction.
