Seeing the Difference With RxSight Light Adjustable Lenses

Cataract surgery involves removing damaged and cloudy lenses and replacing them with intraocular lenses (IOL). There are all different kind of IOLs that you can choose from, but the RxSight Light Adjustable Lenses are the only IOL that can be adjusted after your surgery is complete. The lens is made of special photosensitive material that can be altered using special UV light, offering better vision outcomes compared to non-adjustable lenses.

How Do RxSight Light Adjustable Lens Work?

After your doctor performs the cataract surgery and removes your old, cloudy lens, your RxSight Light Adjustable Lens will be implanted onto your eye. A few weeks after recovery, your doctor will then begin vision adjustments using an ultraviolet (UV) light. This safe and noninvasive procedure is quick, but it may take a few sessions before you gain optimal eyesight. Once you’re satisfied with the results, your eye doctor can lock in your prescription so you won’t need constant revisits for adjustments.

Light Adjustable Lens FAQs

How Do I Know if I’m a Candidate for Light Adjustable Lenses?

If you have cataracts, need surgery, and have corneal astigmatism, but don’t have macular disease, you may be eligible for light adjustable lenses. But to get approved for this procedure, it’s best to discuss your vision health with our eye surgeon.

What Are the Risks of This Procedure?

Some side effects of light adjustable lenses can include alterations in color vision but resolve after adjustments are made. You may also experience temporary eye dryness, irritation, or scratchiness. Corneal abrasion or retinal damage are also rare risks of light adjustable lenses.

What Should I Expect During the Light Adjustment?

About two to three weeks after surgery, you can get the lenses adjusted to fit your vision needs. A Light Delivery Device (LDD) sends ultraviolet (UV) light to your lenses to adjust your vision. The actual procedure will take about 90 seconds to complete.

How Do I Protect My New Light Adjustable Lenses?

From the time your new lenses are implanted until your final adjustment, your eye doctor will ask you to wear UV-protective glasses. This is a big part of your recovery as exposure to indoor or outdoor UV light can change your lenses.
