Most people in their 40s and 50s require reading glasses. This is because eyes lose their power to focus. People willing to see better without using reading or contact glasses must go for lens exchange surgery. This kind of surgery is more appropriate for people using contact lenses for reading or activities like driving. In this kind of surgery, the natural lens of the eye is replaced with an artificial one to correct vision. It eliminates the need for cataract surgery in the future.
The surgery has several benefits. It improves both near and distance vision. Since an artificial lens is used, it provides visual stability to the eyes.
