Enjoy perfect vision now.

Why wait until you need cataract surgery? Laser-assisted RLE  with multifocal intra-ocular lenses make it so there are no needles, no blades, and potentially NO glasses afterward. This is the future of vision over 45!

Precision

Laser-assisted RLE surgery is a precise treatment that’s highly customized to each patient. The method allows for little to no discomfort during surgery and a more rapid recovery. Patients will experience a gentler cataract removal versus traditional techiques, reduced inflammation, and the potential for a reduced need for glasses or contacts after surgery.

Personalization

One size does not fit all. There are different options for you to choose from when it comes to your replacement lens. Your doctor will help you determine the best option for you based on your anatomy, expectations, and lifestyle. RLE pricing can also be confusing. We will walk you through the process and help you fully understand the costs, including what your insurance will and won’t cover, so you can make a confident, informed decision.

Performance

The only way to know for certain if  RLE is right for you is to have a comprehensive eye exam. Our highly-experienced doctors can  by looking at the lens of your eye. If a cataract is impeding your vision, the only way to restore it is to remove and replace the cloudy lens. With over 100,000 successful cataract surgeries performed, our SharpeVision surgeons take cataract surgery to a new level.

What to expect

Modern RLE: Start to Finish

Comprehensive exam

A comprehensive, dilated examination is the only way to know which vision-correction procedure is best for you. While your exam involves comprehensive diagnostic testing, it is also our opportunity to learn more about you, your expectations, and your lifestyle. All of these factors play an important role in recommending if RLE is the best procedure for you:

The complete exam can take up to 90 minutes. After all the data is collected, our doctor will examine you, discuss the treatment recommendation, and answer any questions you have. Your visit will include dilation of your pupils, which will affect your eyesight for about 4-6 hours, as you may have experienced with a routine eye exam.
