Overview

If you want to achieve better vision with surgery but have been told that you are not a candidate for LASIK or PRK, clear lens extraction (CLE) may be an option for you. This procedure, also called refractive lens exchange, is similar to cataract surgery. It can correct nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and age-related farsightedness (presbyopia). It is typically recommended for people with good eye health in their mid- or late-50s or slightly younger people who need reading glasses. Because your eye’s natural lens is removed during surgery, you will not need cataract surgery in the future.
