Refractive lens exchange (RLE) replaces your eye’s clear natural lens with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL) that permanently corrects your refractive error to achieve sharper focus, thus greatly reducing or entirely eliminating your need for reading glasses or bifocals. Because the procedure is the same as a cataract operation, using a sophisticated, aspheric implant, you can never develop cataracts after having the refractive lens exchange procedure.
In fact, the 10-minute RLE procedure is virtually identical to cataract surgery. First, our eye surgeon employs the latest anesthesia techniques to freeze the eye without using a needle. A microscopic, self-healing incision is made in the cornea, and the most advanced ultrasound technology is used to remove the eye's lens. The defective lens is then replaced with a new foldable artificial lens, which unfolds easily and automatically takes the natural lens's place.
There is no one size fits all solution for every patient, and each type of implant has its advantages and disadvantages regarding the best uncorrected vision it produces at different distances. Your eye surgeon will examine your eyes to recommend the type of lens most suitable for your individual needs.
Within minutes after the surgery, natural processes seal the micro-incision in the cornea. The lens implant remains within your eye without needing further care after surgery.
After refractive lens exchange surgery, it usually takes about a week to resume regular work, driving, and daily activities, as your eyes need this time to heal naturally. After that time, you won’t feel the IOL in your eye because it doesn’t sit on the eye's surface like a contact lens, but rather inside the eye. The artificial IOL is designed to last the rest of your life, with extremely minimal risk of your prescription changing or deteriorating over time.
At UELC, we know that BOTOX Is NOT meant to create the frozen face! Instead, it’s used to tone down the muscle activation that continuously occurs throughout the day, causing lines and wrinkles over time. Dr.Raj Maini and our team know the proper placement of Botox to disenable muscles and how frequently it needs to be part of your regime during the year to accomplish a more subtle and rejuvenated YOU.

The eyelids are one of the first areas to show the effect of aging and fatigue. Drooping eyelids, dark circles, and puffy under-eye bags can make you look older than you are and may make you feel less confident about your appearance.
If under-eye concealers, targeted eye-firming creams, and getting plenty of rest hasn’t helped reduce the bags under your eyes, there is a way to permanently regain a more youthful and refreshed eye area: eyelid surgery.
Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure to remove underlying fat and excess skin from the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. It is sometimes used to add an upper eyelid crease for those who have monolids. It’s a short and easy procedure that can significantly enhance your appearance. UELC has well-equipped cosmetic clinics for eyelid surgery in Vaughan, Brampton, and Toronto to help you.
We aim to care for our patients compassionately in a technologically cutting edge environment using the latest advances in clinical research.
