Why wear glasses, when you can have your lenses replaced and see perfectly without them?

Refractive Lens Exchange is one of our most popular eye procedures.

The replacement is performed in local anaesthesia and takes only about 10 minutes per eye. During this short surgery, your natural lens is painlessly removed and replaced by an artificial AcrySof IOL.

Procedure details

Trifocal lens implants

Trifocal lens meets the highest requirements for quality and vision perfection to near, intermediate and far distances. It is a great alternative to varifocal lenses (glasses).

Choose from top quality brands including Alcon and Zeiss. We recommend Alcon Acrysof IQ PanOptix and Zeiss AT Lisa for high-resolution images with outstanding contrast sensitivity at all distances and under all light conditions.

Patient Requirements

Refractive lens exchange is suitable for patients over 40 years of age with disorders beyond the scope of laser eye surgery. A free evaluation by our eye surgeons is available for you in order to assess your suitability for the RLE surgery and type of lens implants.


The main advantage of RLE is removing all dioptres. It is also a preventive treatment - patients, after refractive lens exchange is no more at risk of cataract and the risk of paroxysmal glaucoma, is substantially reduced.

To patients who would also like to get rid of reading glasses, we recommend the multifocal lens exchange method, which is a refractive lens exchange completed with so-called multifocal intraocular lens implantation.

Surgery Performance

RLE is performed in an ambulatory setting during which an optical element (intraocular lens) is permanently implanted in the eye. It takes about 10 minutes per eye. The patient can leave the clinic immediately after the surgery. The next day is post-operative check-up.

The most popular are Alcon Acrysof lenses and Zeiss lenses. The standard RLE is performed with Alcon Acrysof lenses. Intraocular lenses AcrySof Restor are produced by Alcon, an American company, and have been approved for use by the European Union and the USFDA.
