The First and Only Lens That Can Be Customized AFTER Cataract Surgery
With traditional intraocular lenses (IOLs), measurements are taken before your cataract surgery in order to select the best IOL to try to achieve your vision goals. Once your surgery is complete and the IOL has been implanted, your physician has limited options to adjust the lens power.
With the RxSight® Light Adjustable Lens, you and your eye physician and surgeon can now customize your vision after your eye has healed from cataract surgery. This is because the Light Adjustable Lens (LAL) is made of a special photosensitive material that changes the shape and power of your implanted lens in response to ultraviolet (UV) light. Working with your ophthalmologist, you will have the unique ability to adjust and preview your vision until it meets your personal desires and lifestyle requirements.
Del Negro & Senft Eye Associates is excited to be the first practice in Monmouth/Ocean County to offer this revolutionary technology to qualified candidates who are looking to experience and design their desired visual outcome.
The cataract removal and IOL implantation procedure is the same as if you selected a non-adjustable IOL. Then, in the weeks that follow, your physician will customize your vision through a series of non-invasive light treatments that take only a few minutes each. You may need 3 to 5 total light treatments over a period of 4 to 5 weeks to reach your vision goals. Once your vision is adjusted, a final light treatment is used to lock in the results.
The Light Adjustable Lens delivers superior vision outcomes that non-adjustable IOLs cannot match. In a clinical study, the majority of patients who received the Light Adjustable Lens achieved 20/20 or better vision at 6 months without glasses.¹
