Dysfunctional Lens Syndrome (DLS), or presbyopia, describes the natural changes in the crystalline lens that occur after approximately age 40. It’s a continuum that begins the day a person is born.

In the past, the usual remedy for DLS was to wear reading glasses or multifocal eyeglasses, such as bifocals or progressive lenses. Today, we have the technology to exchange the dysfunctional lens in your eye with a lens implant that allows you to have your distance, intermediate and near vision back. Get rid of your reading glasses, look years younger, and fully enjoy your active lifestyle without a need for glasses or contacts. Imagine the long term money savings!

You may know people who have had cataract surgery and now have better vision than ever. You can now have a procedure that is the same, it just occurs before you actually develop cataracts.

What to Expect

  • Full Focus vision is returned to you!
  • A short, painless outpatient procedure.
  • Vision recovery is immediate; many patients drive themselves to the follow up appointment the next day.
  • Very little downtime; you may generally return to work in 24 hours.
  • You can have both eyes done a week apart, sometimes earlier.

Benefits of Presbyopia Treatment

  • Refractive Lens Exchange is an outpatient procedure. You are in surgery for less than 20 minutes and you are given light sedation, not full anesthesia.
  • LASIK only corrects one focal point of vision, mainly distance. Full Focus Vision Correction with Refractive Lens Exchange corrects all levels of vision; distance, intermediate and near.
  • Once you have the Refractive Lens Exchange, you will never need cataract surgery as you get older.
  • Your new Full Focus Vision implant will never need to be replaced and the effects of your procedure will not “wear off.”
  • We have the technology through lens implants and laser assistance to correct your astigmatism as well.

What are the Lens Types Associated with Refractive Lens Exchange?

  • Monofocal lens: Corrects distance vision only
  • Astigmatism correcting lens: Corrects astigmatism (irregular shape of the cornea)
  • Multifocal lens: Provides Full Focus Vision
  • Dual lenses: Allows monovision correction; one eye for distance, one eye for near
