Refractive Lens Exchange

Refractive Lens Exchange Boise, ID

Refractive lens surgery involves the removal of the clear lens of your eye. In some cases, the lens may have an early cataract which does not significantly interfere with corrected vision.  The eye surgeon, known as an ophthalmologist, surgically removes the natural lens of the eye and replaces it with an intraocular lens implant (which is usually made of plastic, silicone, or acrylic material), in order to restore vision.
