Clear lens exchange or lens replacement eye surgery is a surgical procedure done to improve vision problems. It involves removing the natural lens of the eye and replacing it with an artificial lens. The result is like having brand new clear lenses.

Lens replacement aims to correct one or more eye conditions. The most popular application is cataract surgery, where the clouded lens is replaced. This is also becoming popular as a vision correction procedure for people who want to minimise or get rid of prescription eyeglasses and contact lenses. Most often, those who are not suitable candidates for laser eye surgery such as LASIK or other forms of refractive surgeries can have lens replacement surgery.

The process is a relatively quick outpatient procedure, meaning the patient does not need to stay long in the hospital. The eye surgeon will do a thorough evaluation and eye examination before the surgery is scheduled. The procedure is virtually painless but on the day itself, the patient is given anaesthetic eye drops to ensure comfort. A very small incision is made using high precision instruments. A tiny probe is then inserted to dissolve the eye lens. The probe transmits ultrasound waves to gently break up the lens. The broken fragments are then easily suctioned out. Finally, the doctor inserts an intraocular lens or IOL through the same incision. Generally, the procedure is completed in less than 30 minutes for each eye. There are no stitches involved since the minute incision made will heal by itself.

Among the largest groups of people choosing to have replacement lens surgery are those aged 50 and above. In this age group, not only do the skin, hair, organs, muscles, and bones start to deteriorate but vision also gradually declines along with advancing age. It may not be particularly noticeable at first but the fact is that beginning in the early forties, the eye naturally goes through changes. The previously flexible lens becomes less elastic and the muscle fibres around the lens become stiffer. This decreased elasticity results in difficulty focusing on objects up close. This deterioration is usually managed by wearing reading glasses while looking at fine print or doing activities that require near vision. For people with existing refractive errors, the solution is bifocals or progressive lenses. With bifocal lenses, the main lens is for distance vision while the smaller lower part has a stronger lens prescription for doing close work.

A lot of people, especially women, prefer not to wear prescription lenses. Despite glasses being available in much more fashionable styles than ever before they can still validate that the ageing years are finally here.

The procedure known as Clarivu is a lens replacement eye surgery and is the best option to restore good vision without having to wear eye glasses ever again. It is an ideal procedure to revitalise the ageing eye to restore normal vision.

The ageing eye can also become victim to the development of cataracts. A cataract is another lens problem, this time characterised by cloudiness of vision. Over the years, the protein molecules in the eye can slowly clump together causing loss of transparency in certain areas of the lens. This can be quite annoying since vision is partially obscured by the cataract formation. Although a cataract is painless, it can progress slowly to cause vision loss and is also potentially blinding if not treated. Cataract surgery involves removing of the old cloudy lens and replacing it with a synthetic lens. The procedure has a low complication rate, quick recovery, and leads to successful restoration of vision.

One does not need to wait for the lens to be almost completely clouded by cataracts. People with just the beginnings of cataracts can opt to have refractive lens exchange early on to have the benefits of clearer vision through lens replacement eye surgery. The older age group who wants to enjoy life comfortably without having to wear prescription glasses or those who do not want to develop cataracts later on can have lens replacement eye surgery. By having the lens replaced, it is like having a brand new set of young eyes with clear vision.
