What is Lens Replacement Surgery ?

Lens Replacement Surgery is essentially the same operation as Cataract Surgery. the main differnce is that in this the natural lens is not cloudy and you are removing the lens purely to corrcet refractive error. It is mainly useful for those who are not suitable for Laser Eye surgery and need both reading and distance vision corrected. It is more invasive than Laser Eye Surgery as you have to operate inside the eye rather than just on the surface.

We offer a clear pricing strategy with no variations based on prescription. You will see that our prices are more affordable than our competitors. We achieve this by minimizing unnecessary expenditure on marketing. Most of our customers hear of us by word of mouth.



Frequently asked questions

How safe is lens replacement?

Lens replacement is essentially a more advanced version of cataract surgery, which is one of the safest and most widely performed medical procedures in the world Although there is always some risk associated with any procedure, Lumivision utilizes advanced technology and rigorous safety measures to ensure the safest treatment possible. We will gladly discuss potential risks or side effects with you at your consultation.

Is is permanent?

One of the greatest advantages of Lens replacement is that the advanced lens is designed to last a lifetime, and is not expected to become cloudy, change position, or ever need replacement. We expect our lens replacement patients to experience little dependence on glasses for the rest of their life.

Will it hurt?

Lens replacement has advanced to the point where there is very little that is felt during the procedure. In fact, the most discomfort you will likely feel is from the anesthetic drops or fluid inserted around the eye. The entire procedure is extremely quick – just 30 minutes per eye – and we take many steps to make sure you are comfortable along the way.

How long is the recovery time?

Every patient is unique, and the healing process will be different in each case. Most patients return to their normal work or lifestyle in a week. That said, it may take a few months to experience the full benefits of the procedure. It is important to discuss your needs and expectations with your surgeon so that you can better understand your healing process.

Is lens replacement right for me?

Lens replacement is typically recommended for people age 45 or over who suffer from the need for reading glasses or bifocals. If you’ve been told you have an “early” cataract, lens replacement may be the recommended solution for you as well. As always, a thorough eye exam is necessary to determine candidacy and whether lens replacement is indeed the best option for your vision.

Why is lens replacement more expensive than lasik?

While LASIK is done in a laser room, lens replacement has to be performed in a fully functioning operating room with specialized equipment and staff trained for lens surgery. Additionally, there is cost associated with the advanced technology lens used to restore your vision.
