What Is Lens Replacement

Lens replacement, also known as refractive lens exchange, is a procedure where the natural lens in your eye is removed and replaced with a high-performance lifestyle lens that permanently corrects near- and far-sightedness or astigmatism. It also prevents the formation of cataracts and provides greater freedom from glasses and contacts.

Lens replacement is considered an elective procedure and is not covered by insurance. However, the benefits last a lifetime.
