Frequently Asked Questions
If I have an astigmatism, can I have clear lens exchange (CLE)?
In nearly all cases, yes. However, we recommend that you come in for a consultation to learn more about the CLE procedure as it relates to your vision, specifically.
How safe is clear lens exchange (CLE)?
Very. CLE is usually safer than wearing contact lenses.
Do you offer premium lens implants?
Yes. Premium lenses are often used to help aid in visual correction of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism in some patient cases.
Do you use a laser for clear lens exchange (CLE) surgery?
Yes. The most demanding part of any lens surgery is creating an incision in the eye. We use an advanced laser incision technology that minimizes the size of the slit and improves healing times.
