Surgical Vision Correction

Refractive lens exchange, also known as clear lens extraction is offered here in Baltimore, Maryland, as our preferred form of surgical vision correction. It has become an increasingly popular solution to reduce dependence on glasses or contact lenses. Refractive lens exchange corrects your vision by enhancing your eye’s optics with the latest technology of intraocular lenses. As a further advantage of this vision correction procedure, patients choosing this correction will never develop cataracts. The vision correction will generally remain stable throughout the years.

Get Out of Your Glasses!

Refractive lens exchange offers a future of clear vision. The variety of sophisticated intraocular lenses available today can correct most vision needs, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, with 1 procedure. Dr. Adler will recommend the artificial intraocular lenses to meet your vision needs, based on the condition and health of your eyes.

“When I hit my mid 40’s, my eyesight started to go downhill. Since my dad had to have cataract surgery last year, I figured the time was right for me to do this now. I had several consultations with other doctors about this procedure and none of them compared to Dr. Adler and his staff! Dr. Adler took his time to answer all of my questions and really educated me on this procedure. During my surgeries, the assistants and Dr. Adler were so attentive! My vision is perfect and my eyes feel completely normal. I highly recommended Dr. Adler. He is a great doctor and definitely knows what he is doing. He is very detailed and very kind and very patient!”

Presbyopia is the normal aging of the eye that causes a loss of “near” focusing and the need for reading glasses. Presbyopia is a universal human condition, it happens to everyone, and generally begins around age 40. Even nearsighted people will eventually lose their ability to focus on small print while wearing the eyeglasses or contact lenses for distance vision.

When seeing small print (on a label, text messages, menus, books, etc.) becomes difficult, it is important to seek a vision solution. Struggling to see is not only frustrating, but it can also cause headaches, eye strain, and vision fatigue. Presbyopia can be diagnosed with a comprehensive eye exam. While the condition is not a disease and cannot be cured, there are many corrective options available. LASIK may be a good choice depending on your particular needs.

Refractive lens exchange is designed to last the rest of your life. It is performed on an outpatient basis, on one eye at a time. We generally recommend waiting about 2 weeks between procedures. Typically, there is no discomfort, and most patients report vision improvement shortly after surgery.
