See the Benefits of RLE Eye Surgery
Think of the amount of money you’ve spent on glasses and contacts. Think of the time you’ve spent cleaning, worrying and searching for glasses and contacts. With RLE eye surgery, you may not have to think about glasses and contacts ever again. RLE eye surgery, or Refractive Lens Exchange, replaces your natural lens with a premium, prescription lens of a different shape to give you sharper vision.
It eliminates or reduces farsightedness, nearsightedness and astigmatism, prevents cataracts from developing as you age, and stops year-to-year prescription changes. Our patients have saved hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars on glasses and contacts of the years—and you can too! The quick procedure usually gives you near-immediate, lasting results and almost no recovery time. The procedure can also treat astigmatism simultaneously.
Not counting your savings in time, just your financial savings can be tremendous. Use our free savings calculator now to estimate your savings.

Are You a Candidate for RLE Eye Surgery?
Almost anyone in good health is a candidate for RLE eye surgery, though most candidates are over 50. Unlike cataract surgery, RLE eye surgery can replace a clear lens, preventing cataracts from developing. Even if you have been told you’re not a candidate for laser eye surgery, RLE eye surgery could give you the results you want! Find out if you can benefit from RLE eye surgery, schedule your consultation with Dr. Magruder today.
The RLE Eye Surgery Process
At your first consultation, we will examine your eyes to assess your visual needs, vision history and prescription to develop a personalized vision correction plan that best fits your situation. For RLE eye surgery, you will meet Dr. Magruder at an outpatient surgery center close to our office. Soon after the procedure, you will see the clear results of surgery! Depending on your vision correction needs, you may need two appointments, because each eye must be corrected separately.
