HOW DOES THE LIGHT ADJUSTABLE LENS WORK?
During cataract surgery, the device is implanted into your eye to replace the damaged cataract lens. The process for this is exactly the same as placing a normal IOL with the only difference being that the Light Adjustable Lens can be modified long after your cataracts surgery. Once your eye has properly healed following your procedure, you will return to our office for an eye exam to determine your correct prescription. Recently approved by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA), this device is able to respond to ultraviolet (UV) light, allowing you to consistently have your best vision, regardless of environmental conditions.
