Lens replacement

The lens replacement treatment offers an excellent alternative to laser eye surgery, especially for people over the age of 45.

During the treatment, the natural eye lens is replaced by an extremely advanced implant lens (read: implant) that corrects all refractive errors so that you no longer even need reading glasses after the treatment.

How does lens replacement work

The lens replacement treatment only takes a few minutes, during which the eyes are anesthetized by means of eye drops. You will not experience any pain during the entire treatment. After the treatment, your eyes may be irritated from the light for several hours.

  1. Anesthesia Your eye is first numbed with eye drops. As a result, you will not feel any pain during the treatment.

  2. Removing the natural lens The surgeon removes your own lens using the phaco emulsification method. The surgeon can now place the artificial lens in your eye.

  3. Implanting the lens After the natural lens is removed, your eye doctor will place the advanced lens implant. This lens has optical properties that can correct almost any aberration that the eye naturally has. You can think of myopia, farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia.

For detailed information about how it works before, during and after treatment, you can consult our patient portal.

  • 5 sterren Still immensely happy with it!

    It has now been 2.5 years since I had the ReLEx SMILE treatment and I should have done it much earlier! Treatment itself really only takes a few minutes and you feel 0.0 pain! It was really great to have sharp vision immediately after the treatment, which is still the case after 2.5 years!

  • 5 sterren Got treated last Friday for...lens replacement

    Was treated last Friday for a lens replacement. And really feels like a miracle I could see everything clearly again the next morning even the small print. Had follow-up checkup and all is well. Very friendly doctor and also all the other staff. If I had known about this earlier I would definitely have done it earlier. Still in the healing phase so it can only get better. Even better? Wow am already so happy. Am very grateful.

  • 5 sterren Nice and professional people and a super result!

    Visus performed RLE treatment (lens replacement) on both my eyes in 2021. There was excellent contact, information and guidance throughout. To this day, I am very satisfied with the result. I see super sharp and no longer even need reading glasses, not even for the very small print. As far as I am concerned, this clinic is highly recommended.
