Other Refractive Procedures

Clear Lens Extraction

Clear Lens Extraction or CLEAR for short is another vision correction option designed especially for people who are over 50 and are not good candidates for LASIK. Unlike LASIK and other refractive surgery techniques that correct vision by changing the shape of the cornea, CLEAR corrects your vision by changing the focusing power of the eye’s lens.

To do this, we replace your natural lens with a new intraocular lens (IOL). Both cataract surgery and Clear lens extraction have the option to use the Restore lens, which can restore distance, intermediate and near vision. Crystalens is an accommodating lens it acts like a natural lens by changing focus to allow distance, intermediate and near vision. These are the only refractive procedures that allow a full range of vision. While CLEAR is not right for everyone, it may be the option you are looking for. To find out if you are a candidate contact us about having an evaluation today.
