Refractive Lens Exchange

A refractive lens exchange (RLE) is an outpatient procedure that is similar to cataract surgery. Instead of reshaping the cornea to achieve better vision like LASIK, a RLE replaces the natural lens inside the eye with a intraocular lens (IOL). There are different types of IOLs that correct vision in slightly different ways.  

$6800.00 per eye

The Refractive Lens Exchange package utilizes the best technologies to restore near vision and distance vision. 

  • Laser RLE surgery (blade-free) performed with a LenSx femtosecond laser to gently, precisely and reliably perform the incisions involved and to assist in the removal of the natural lens.
  • Advanced multifocal lens with or without astigmatism correction as is considered necessary. Astigmatism will be addressed with the intraocular lens implant or with femtosecond laser-assisted astigmatic keratotomy. 
  • ORA System optimization – precise real time analysis of your visual system during surgery for enhanced selection and precision in the placement of the new intraocular lens implant.

Please note: pricing listed reflects the physician's fee and the surgery center fee. It does not include  the cost of anesthesia for the procedure or any eye drops that may be required.

The Technology Explained 


The LenSx utilizes a femtosecond laser, which allows your surgeon to provide a customized procedure that is blade-free. This means enhanced control, accuracy, and safety with every procedure.

ORA System Optimization   

  • A precise, real-time analysis of your eyes during surgery for enhanced selection and precision in the placement of your intraocular lens implant. 
  • ORA optimization allows your surgeon to analyze your vision and tailor your treatment by providing a detailed measurement of your eye during surgery. 
  • Incorporating ORA into your care results in better refractive outcomes. It's easy to see why we include it in our RLE packages.
