St. Louis, Missouri -
The video series provides vital information about how RLE works, who may qualify and how the procedure changes lives.
St. Louis, MO –Brinton Vision is sharing crucial information with the St. Louis community about Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) via a newly released video guide, available for free to anyone considering LASIK eye surgery. The Refractive Lens Exchange video series provides valuable information about the treatment, as well as how the procedure can help Missouri laser eye surgery patients regain vision and even prevent future vision complications.
Brinton Vision produced the guide to fully explain RLE’s benefits and how surgeons help patients determine if they’re candidates for the procedure. The videos show firsthand experiences of people whose lives have improved significantly after their procedure.
"Many patients who suffer from presbyopia—a condition developed over the years due to the deterioration of the eye's inner lens—are simply not familiar with St. Louis Refractive Lens Exchange surgery options,” said Dr. Jason Brinton, founder of Brinton Vision. “They have been led to believe that in order to receive a vision-correcting lens implant surgery, they have to endure years of cataract development, vision loss, and then cataract surgery in a hospital or surgery center. St. Louis patients are thrilled to find that we provide advanced cataract surgery alternatives that eliminate or minimize the need for glasses and contacts and prevent cataracts.” Brinton Vision advises patients to consider RLE before their eyesight worsens and they develop further vision loss. “RLE can provide immediate improvement to near and far vision, correct astigmatism, and at the same time prevent the further vision loss that comes with progressive cataract development.”
Refractive Lens Exchange is one of the most popular Missouri alternatives to LASIK, showing reliable results in helping patients overcome presbyopia to restore the vision they previously enjoyed. It has proven effective in treating a variety of eyesight changes associated with aging, including difficulty reading without reading glasses or bifocals, seeing nearby objects, driving (especially at night) and constantly changing prescriptions for glasses. While this procedure could help thousands of patients in St. Louis, a lack of awareness about the treatment often keeps people away from this life-changing surgery. Many are not aware there is a LASIK alternative that addresses over-age-40 eyesight changes (presbyopia).
"Historically, there was no good solution for presbyopia, and patients would have no other choice but to correct their condition with the use of bifocal or trifocal glasses," states Dr. Jason Brinton. Refractive lens exchange surgery has benefited from decades of advancements in technology and the study of human physiology, making it possible to cure a condition that would otherwise lead to progressive loss of eyesight.
Refractive lens exchange surgery is similar to cataract surgery in that the aging lens is replaced with a biocompatible lens. The primary difference, however, is that the lens implant in RLE can deliver clear vision at a range of distances, providing a lasting solution that corrects astigmatism, nearsightedness, and farsightedness and restores a more complete range of eyesight. Many patients who undergo RLE surgery no longer need glasses or contacts as a result. RLE has the additional benefit of preventing future deterioration of the eye's lens, such as the formation of cataracts, and patients can have the surgery once they become dependent on readers or bifocals rather than having to wait years for cataract development.
Michael K., a patient who was struggling with presbyopia, or “over 40” vision, is among a number of Brinton Vision’s patients who have experienced the positive impact Refractive Lens Exchange surgery can have on their lives. He had been considering LASIK for some time when his optometrist recommended a visit to Brinton Vision. The decision changed his life. After his RLE surgery, he no longer uses glasses or contacts.
”There is not a single thing about my experience with Brinton Vision that I would change in any way. My vision is better than it has ever been, and it is thanks to Dr. Brinton,” he said.
