What is lens replacement? How does lens replacement work?

Lens replacement surgery is the same as cataract surgery before you even have a cataract. A lot of the time, patients aren’t candidates for laser vision correction. This is when lens replacement surgery might be the most appropriate treatment. It works by removing the natural lens in your eye and replacing it with an acrylic lens. We design this lens specifically for your eye to enhance your vision, whether it be just for the distance or for intermediate and near.

To see if you’re a good candidate to benefit from lens replacement, I’d encourage you to book a free appointment now. You can book it online or call us on 03 8372 0183, and we’ll book it for you. This is the best way to make the first step in seeing if you can free yourself from the burden of glasses and contact lenses. Book now.
