Serving patients throughout New Mexico

Not all people are good candidates for laser vision correction. Southwest Eyecare Specialists offers clear lens surgery as an option. Whether you’re nearsighted, farsightedness or suffer from astigmatism, you can have your dependence on glasses or contacts decreased by this technique. Close to 90% of patients are able to drive without glasses following clear lens extraction. The remainder requires only a minimal correction.

The procedure

Clear lens surgery replaces the human eye lens with an artificial one that helps the light focus properly. Our unique computer program uses the measurements of your eye to compute the power of the implant specifically for you.

The procedure requires only a tiny incision that rarely requires stitches. As a result, most patients enjoy their best possible vision with minimal recovery time.

A unique benefit of clear lens surgery is that after this type of surgery, you can never develop a cataract – ever – for the rest of your life!
