What Is Clear Lens (CL)?
Clear Lens (CL) is a surgical vision correction procedure that restores nearsightedness and farsightedness, eliminating the need for eventual cataract surgery late in life.
Is CL Right For Me?
If you answer “Yes” to any of these questions, you may be a good candidate for CL.
- Is your vision grainy?
- Are you nearsighted or farsighted?
- Do you have an astigmatism?
Frequently Asked Questions
If I have an astigmatism, can I have clear lens (CL)?
In nearly all cases, yes. However, we recommend that you come in for a consultation to learn more about the CL procedure as it relates to your vision, specifically.
How long does the initial consultation take?
About 2 hours, including the diagnostic procedures.
How safe is clear lens (CL)?
Very. CLE is usually safer than wearing contact lenses.
Why don’t younger patients receive clear lens (CL)?
Vision problems in young people can usually be fixed with less invasive techniques.
Do you offer premium lens implants?
Yes. Premium lenses are often used to help aid in visual correction of near-sightedness, far-sightedness, and astigmatism in some patient cases.
Do you use a laser for clear lens (CL) surgery?
Yes. The most demanding part of any lens surgery is creating an incision in the eye. We use an advanced laser incision technology that minimizes the size of the opening and improves healing times.
