CLE Clear Lens Extraction – This procedure is usually offered to patients who are very farsighted and who are presbyopic and are not candidates for LASIK or ICL. The procedure is the same as a cataract extraction, except there is no cataract to remove. The clear lens inside the eye is removed surgically and replaced with an intra-ocular lens that corrects the refractive error of the eye. Multiple styles of intra-ocular lenses are now available that offer patients the option of obtaining multifocal vision for distance and near and wavefront correction for higher order aberrations.
