IOL Procedure and recovery
IOL exchange surgery is quick, painless and safe. Miss Grabowska performs the procedure under local anaesthetic and it only takes a few minutes. The procedure is fast and effective, with most patients able to go home the same day and return to their normal activities within the week. Within 24 hours most patients experience significant improvement in their vision and this increases again the following day.
Patients will have IOL exchange procedures one at a time. Once you have had the first lens exchange it is normal to wait 2-4 weeks for the next.
