Refractive lensectomy is a surgical procedure to free patients of distance glasses for those with refractive errors greater than -9 or +4 diopters. Corneal laser refractive surgery cannot help these patients. The procedure is exactly the same as cataract surgery with the same risks, risks similar to corneal laser refractive surgery.
