Lens replacement for vision without glasses
Nowadays, refractive lens exchange (or lens replacement surgery) has become the most effective treatment method in eye surgery. Lens replacement surgery is essentially the same procedure as cataract surgery – the procedure performed by Nõmme Eye Centre’s eye surgeon Dr. Tõnu Kuddu over 20,000 times.
The difference form cataract surgery lies in the type of the lens. A multifocal lens will be inserted into the eye allowing the patient to see far and near without glasses.
What are the results of refractive lens exchange?
The results of lens replacement surgery can be characterized by a high percentage of satisfied patients – 94 %. Of all people who have undergone the surgery, 80–90 % do not need glasses any more in their everyday life. The other 10–20 % usually need corrections for performing only a few specific activities.

According to surveys, 94 % of patients would go through refractive lens exchange again.
