The use of refractive lens exchange is a practical Vision 20/20 Protocol Ebook Review option especially for those adults over 50 years old. It works best for older patients who are short sighted or long sighted and want to lessen their dependence on reading glasses. The good thing about lens exchange is that it eliminates the need for cataract surgery in the future. 

Since the lens is replaced with an artificial one, it will not develop clumps of protein that leads to cloudiness of vision. While cataracts can develop at any age, they are most common in the older population and around two thirds of all adults will have some sign of cataracts by the age of 60 years old.

Refractive lens exchange or clear lens exchange is an option especially for people who have the signs of early cataracts and would choose to have lens replacement instead of waiting for the cataracts to advance enough to necessitate cataract surgery. Newer technology has made it possible to use accommodating or multifocal intraocular lenses that can improve far vision as well as enhance close vision. Therefore, while laser eye surgery and refractive lens exchange can correct refractive errors, laser surgery involves reshaping the front surface of the eye while lens exchange involves surgically replacing the natural eye lens with an artificial lens.
