Light Adjustable Lens

The Light Adjustable Lens

Do you experience visual impairments such as cloudy vision, glare, and halos post-cataract surgery? Many individuals share the same frustration. While traditional cataract procedures may offer some improvement, residual refractive errors often lead to unsatisfactory results. Fortunately, advanced cataract surgery with the integration of light adjustable lenses (LALs) offers a solution to effectively address these issues.

What Are Light Adjustable Lenses?

Revolutionary in nature, light adjustable lenses (LALs) provide a new dimension to intraocular lens (IOL) technology. Your surgeon has the ability to customize the power of the lens, post-surgery, by utilizing light. This results in a tailored vision experience, minimizing the requirement for glasses. In contrast to conventional IOLs, LALs offer the unique advantage of being adjustable in the aftermath of surgery, guaranteeing optimal outcomes.

How Does Light Adjustable Lens Surgery Work?

The journey towards improved vision with light adjustable lens surgery begins with the implantation of a specialized IOL during cataract surgery. Post-operation, you will visit your surgeon for several follow-up appointments during which they will employ a specialized light to fine-tune the power of the lens. This adjustment process is entirely painless and non-invasive, taking only a matter of minutes to complete.
