But our reputation as the best cataract surgery provider in Alabama isn’t only because of our expert surgeons and cutting-edge, on-site surgery center, it’s also because of our commitment to providing our patients with the latest technology to help them see more clearly than ever.
We’re proud to offer you numerous intraocular lens (IOL) implant options for cataract surgery, including the innovative RxSight Light Adjustable Lens, the first and only IOL that can be adjusted specifically for you after your cataract surgery.
What is the RxSight Light Adjustable Lens?
As we grow older, the natural lens of the eye tends to become cloudy, obstructing vision. This is called a cataract. During cataract surgery, your vision is restored when your surgeon removes the old, damaged lens and replaces it with a clear, artificial lens called an IOL.
Originally, IOLs were designed to simply restore vision, but now, advancements in technology and design allow specific IOLs to not only restore vision but make it better than ever before. Now, certain IOLs can also correct refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
The RxSight Light Adjustable Lens (LAL) is a new IOL that both addresses cataracts and corrects refractive errors. It’s an adjustable IOL, meaning that your doctor can adjust the lens after it’s implanted during cataract surgery and accurately address your specific vision correction needs.
Who Should Use a Light Adjustable Lens?
Many of those who have a refractive error will choose an IOL that’s designed to restore their vision and correct their blurry eyesight so that they don’t have to wear prescription lenses anymore. However, each eye heals differently after cataract surgery, which can affect an IOL’s ability to provide you with clear vision without the aid of glasses.
The RxSight LAL can be adjusted after surgery, allowing your doctor to test and customize your IOL so that you can achieve the best vision possible.
How Does a Light Adjustable IOL Work?
Two to three few weeks after your LAL IOL is implanted during cataract surgery, you will visit your doctor for an eye exam. Next, your doctor will use the RxSight Light Delivery Device (LDD) to adjust your intraocular lens based on the results of your exam. The LDD will painlessly deliver UV light to adjust the light-sensitive LAL, customizing it to fit your eyes and provide you with effortlessly clear sight. This lens can actually be adjusted several times, ensuring that you receive the very best visual outcome.
