Valley Eye Associates has a wide-range of specialty eye care to maximize your best sight. For patients over the age of 50 who desire clearer vision without glasses, our expert surgeons offer multiple vision correction procedures, even if you’re not a candidate for iLASIK. One exciting option offered at Valley Eye Associates is a custom lens replacement (also known as a refractive lensectomy or a refractive lens exchange).
A custom lens replacement procedure removes the healthy (but unfocused) lens of the eye and replaces it with an intraocular lens implant (IOL) to reduce or eliminate your need for glasses or contacts at distance, intermediate and near vision. Depending on the lens selected and your lifestyle needs, it can correct for myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and presbyopia. The procedure is very similar to cataract surgery, one of the most commonly performed procedures in the United States today.
