There are instances when your refractive error is too high, or your cornea is too thin, that laser refractive surgery isn't a good choice. Individuals who do not qualify for refractive surgery and are intolerant of eyeglasses or contact lenses may benefit from Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE). This is also known as Clear Lens Extraction And Replacement (CLEAR). RLE/CLEAR is basically the same procedure as cataract surgery in an individual without cataracts, and possessing a high refractive error, with a desire to be spectacle independent. All the machines, and procedures used in cataract surgery are utilized and performed in RLE/CLEAR.
