Inside the eye is a structure called the lens, which separates the front half and back half of the eye. The lens is made of a soft material, which gets firmer as we age. As part of the ageing process the lens can become cloudy, and then we call it a cataract. The lens is mostly made of proteins and water. Clouding of the lens occurs due to changes in the proteins and lens fibres. Cataracts can usually be treated with a routine day case operation where the cloudy lens is removed and is replaced with an artificial lens. Read more on our 'Cataract' page
F-LASIK is the most frequently performed procedure for patients under the age of 40 to correct myopia (short-sight), hyperopia (long-sight) and astigmatism. This is a two step process that involves creating a very thin flap in the cornea with our state of the art Visumax laser. The second step is to reshape the cornea by removing a microscopic amount of tissue. ASA laser eye surgery is slightly different as a flap is not created in the cornea. Some cells are removed from the surface of the eye and the laser then reshapes the cornea. See our 'Laser Eye Surgery' page for more information about F-LASIK and ASA
Refractive lens exchange (abbreviated to RLE) is also known as refractive lens surgery, lens replacement surgery or clear lens exchange (CLE). RLE surgery is completed using the same technique as cataract surgery although no cataract is present. The clear natural lens inside the eye is removed and replaced with an artificial intraocular lens and is popular with patients who are above the age of 40. RLE is a great alternative to laser eye surgery for those over 40 as it can offer a more permanent near vision result as well as great distance vision. There are various intraocular lenses available to suit all people and they provide different visual results. Read about the differences between monovision, trifocals and distance vision correction on our Refractive Lens Exchange page.
