Surgical Vision Correction in Lynnwood
Every day, patients are told that they aren’t the best fit for LASIK or cataract surgery, but we know that isn’t the end of the story. We encourage patients to look into RLE and ICL and come in for a consultation to see if one might be right for you.
REFRACTIVE LENS EXCHANGE
As your eye ages, the eye’s crystalline lens naturally deteriorates and causes gradual vision loss. Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) is a surgery in which the lens is removed and replaced with a premium implant — an intraocular lens (IOL) — that will restore vision to the highest degree possible.
Previously, lens replacement was only done if you had a cataract. Today, your options for vision correction are less limited. RLE is performed before a cataract develops, in response to a condition that we call Dysfunctional Lens Syndrome, or DLS. In this case, the lens is replaced when it starts to cause vision issues. This stops presbyopia in its tracks and prevents cataracts from forming in the future.
Like cataract surgery, RLE is a simple outpatient procedure that takes less than 10 minutes to perform.
Not sure if your vision loss is being caused by cataracts? A consultation with one of our experienced eye surgeons can help you get some much-needed clarity about whether you’re a good fit for RLE or if you’d be better served by cataract surgery.
IMPLANTED COLLAMER LENS
An Implanted Collamer Lens (ICL) procedure is another quick, outpatient surgery that typically lasts less than 10 minutes. In ICL, a phakic IOL made of natural material is placed in front of the eye’s existing crystalline lens without the removal of corneal tissue or the natural lens.
Unlike LASIK, ICL precisely reshapes from within, in a way that causes less damage to the cornea and poses a lower risk for dry eye.
ICL is a great option for people who may not be able to undergo LASIK due to astigmatism and severe myopia, as well as insufficient corneal thickness. During a consultation, your K2 Vision surgeon will be able to help you decide if ICL is the right choice to correct your vision and improve your quality of life.
