Removal of cataracts and replacement with an intraocular lens (IOL) is the most common surgical procedure performed in the world today. There are no real negatives to replacing your clouded cataract with an IOL.
Refractive lens exchange, or RLE, is a surgical procedure that replaces the eye’s natural lens with an artificial intraocular lens to improve vision. RLE is nearly the same as cataract surgery, except that the eye’s crystalline lens is clear rather than cloudy.
