How Clear Lens Exchange Works
We begin the CLE procedure by applying numbing eye drops to the eye being treated (only one eye is treated during the visit). You remain awake during the procedure; the eye drops numb the sensation for most patients. When the eye is ready, your doctor makes a small incision on the cornea to gently break up and remove the natural lens and insert the new lens. The procedure typically takes about 15 minutes and the incisions heal naturally without any stitches.
Clear Lens Exchange Recovery
Plan to allow yourself a day to recover from CLE with minimal restrictions. Your new lens will not be noticeable to other people and you won’t even know it is there – you’ll just be reminded of how great life can be without lenses.
