Light Adjustable Lens Cataract Surgery
Customize your Vision AFTER Cataract Surgery
With the Light Adjustable Lens from RXSight
Ohio Eye Associates is now offering light adjustable lens cataract surgery.
The first and only intraocular lens (IOL) that allows your physician to optimize your vision following cataract surgery. You will be able to preview and compare possible vision outcomes with your doctor based on your personal desires and lifestyle requirements.
Cataract surgery is the most performed procedure in the United States. About 50% of Americans will develop cataracts by age 75, a percentage that is projected to increase as life expectancies continue to rise. Cataracts form when the proteins and fibers in your eye’s natural lens begin to break down, causing hazy or cloudy vision.
Once begun, cataracts only worsen until surgery is necessary. During surgery, a patient’s natural lens is removed and replaced with a clear synthetic one. Until now, surgeons relied upon the accuracy of pre-surgery measurements to determine a patient’s post-operative prescription power. RxSight’s Light Adjustable Lens is changing that with the ability to customize vision after surgery.
Studies show that patients who receive the LAL and the recommended post-surgery treatments were more likely to achieve 20/20 vision or better without glasses compared to cataract patients who have standard lens implants.1 The LAL is made of proprietary material that can be adjusted post-surgery using the RxSight Light Delivery Device to deliver targeted ultraviolet light treatments. The LAL can be adjusted to meet every patient’s lifestyle and needs.
Small variations in healing happen in most eyes. With the LAL, we have the opportunity to correct for those and to give patients vision customized for their specific eyes.
Fixed vs. Adjustable
All other cataract lenses—monofocal, toric, trifocal—are FIXED lenses.
The LAL is the first and only lens ADJUSTABLE after cataract surgery.
- Adjustable monofocal technology reduces possibility of issues with glare and halos
- Post-surgical lens adjustment is similar to a glasses or contacts fitting process
