Refractive Lens Exchange in Bensalem, PA

Our team is delighted to perform refractive lens exchange (RLE) for patients in Bensalem, Philadelphia, Huntingdon Valley, PA, and Hamilton, NJ. RLE is virtually the same procedure as cataract surgery, though the patient doesn't have cataracts. With RLE, the existing lens is exchanged with an artificial intraocular lens, or IOL, to eliminate or significantly reduce certain kinds of refractive errors and maximize focusing power and sharp vision at different distances.

RLE is often an exciting treatment method for people who have very severe levels of myopia or hyperopia and who might not be ideal candidates for other specific refractive vision procedures. Also, one amazing bonus is that an intraocular lens isn't vulnerable to cataracts so RLE eases that worry. Contact IC Laser Eye Care or Suburban Eye Associates soon to schedule an exam at a nearby location, and discover whether RLE is right for you.

IC Laser Eye Care and Suburban Eye Associates conduct RLE as an outpatient procedure that, for most patients, is completed in about 10 – 20 minutes. However, if you plan to receive RLE for each eye, you should wait about a week between surgeries.

Before your surgery, our team will administer special eye drops to numb the eyes thoroughly and often a gentle anesthetic to enhance relaxation when needed. Our team will create a tiny incision in the corneal tissue and use specialized technology to delicately dissolve the patient's existing lens and take it out. Then, they will put the refractive IOL in its place using the existing tiny removal incision, which will heal quickly without sutures.


Many patients opt for RLE for several compelling reasons. Recognized for its vision correction capabilities, RLE offers a quick recovery period and minimal discomfort. Our team tailors a unique plan to achieve your desired outcomes. Benefits of undergoing RLE include:

  • Enhanced sharpness and clarity of vision
  • Better vision in low-light conditions
  • Decreased likelihood of experiencing glare, halos, and starbursts
  • Significantly reduced dependence on glasses or contact lenses post-procedure
  • Fewer side effects in comparison to alternative options
  • A marked improvement in the visual quality of life and overall eye health

They are very professional and caring people.

I have been a patient of IC Laser on Knights Rd for the last 5 years and have always left satisfied and happy. I have gotten contacts, prescription glasses and eye check-ups and all of those services have been exceptional. Picking out glasses is not an easy thing because you want your glasses to look right with the shape of your face. Dianna the Optician is super nice, very knowledgeable and patient with me every time I visit. She has even made my 6 year old nephew feel confident and cool in his first pair of glasses! I definitely recommend checking this place out for all your vision needs.
