Refractive Secondary Lens Implant

What is Refractive Secondary Lens Implant

Refractive Secondary Lens Implant is only suitable for people who have already had cataract surgery or lens replacement surgery with lens implant and are having to wear glasses or contact lens for clear vision. The purpose of this surgery is to provide spectacle independence for most activities.

The surgery involves insertion of a second lens implant in the eye that sits on top of the lens implanted after cataract or lens replacement surgery.
