Understanding Cataracts And Implantable Lenses

Cataracts are a common issue affecting about half of Americans by the age of 75. This condition results from the breakdown of proteins and fibers in your eye's natural lens, leading to progressively hazy or cloudy vision. If left untreated, cataracts can eventually lead to blindness.

The solution to cataracts lies in cataract surgery. Implantable lenses, or intraocular lenses (IOLs), are medical devices surgically implanted into the eye to correct vision problems. During cataract surgery, the natural lens is removed and replaced with an IOL.

Implantable lenses can reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses and can also be used to correct refractive errors such as:

  • Nearsightedness
  • Farsightedness
  • Astigmatism

The Advantages Of Adjustable Lenses

Traditional lens implants come with a crucial drawback: you need to make all your vision-related decisions before the surgery, and once implanted, these lenses cannot be changed. They are referred to as "fixed" lenses.

The Light Adjustable Lens™, on the other hand, is truly revolutionary. Here are some of its many benefits:

  • Flexibility: The Light Adjustable Lens™ allows for post-surgery adjustments, allowing you to fine-tune your vision to match your unique preferences and lifestyle requirements.
  • Customization: With the Light Adjustable Lens™, you can achieve vision that is genuinely customized for you, as the lens can be adjusted to achieve optimal vision outcomes.
  • Improved outcomes: The ability to adjust the lens post-surgery can improve vision outcomes, as the lens can be fine-tuned to address any residual refractive errors.
  • Convenience: The Light Adjustable Lens™ eliminates the need for multiple surgeries or additional corrective procedures, as the lens can be adjusted without further surgery.
  • Peace of mind: The Light Adjustable Lens™ provides peace of mind, as you can be confident that your vision will be optimized to meet your individual needs and preferences.

Light Adjustable Lens™ Candidates

This lens is ideal for individuals who are considering cataract surgery or those who are interested in correcting their refractive errors, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. If you are a generally healthy adult with cataracts, you’re likely a great candidate for the Light Adjustable Lens™.

Post-Surgery Expectations

Approximately three weeks after your cataract surgery, you will begin the light treatments to tailor your vision. During these visits, you and your doctor collaboratively work to achieve the best possible visual outcome that aligns with your lifestyle and preferences.

Studies indicate that patients who opt for the Light Adjustable Lens™, combined with the recommended post-surgery treatments, are nearly twice as likely to achieve 20/20 vision or better without glasses than those who receive standard lens implants during cataract surgery.

During the adjustment phase of your vision, it's essential to wear UV-protective glasses. These glasses shield your lens from UV light, ensuring the integrity of your vision as it undergoes its final lock-in phase. Your comfort and safety are our priorities throughout this journey.
