My Refractive Lens Exchange

Refractive Lens Exchange is a Presbyopic refractive surgery for people 45 years of age or older to reduce or eliminate dependence on glasses.  

RLE restores vision up close, reading, and computer vision while also keeping good distance vision.  This is done by exchanging the natural but now dysfunctional human lens with an Intraocular Multifocal Lens Implant.  Don Benefield, M.D. has had two decades of experience with Intraocular Multifocal Lens Implant technology.  Benefield Eye Care has the unique expertise to help you choose the right lens for your lifestyle. Refractive Lens Exchange is performed right on campus in the comfort of Coastal Eye Surgery Center with the latest technology and friendly staff; the surgery takes no longer than 12 minutes.  There are no shots, no stitches, no patches, and no bruises.  The surgery will also correct astigmatism and other aberrations.  

You can be back on the golf course, shopping, or at work the next day!
