RxSight Light Adjustable Lens

The First and Only Lens That Can Be Customized After Cataract Surgery

The next technology curve in cataract surgery has finally arrived.

Introducing the RxSight Light Adjustable Lens

RxSight Light Adjustable Lenses are the first and only lens implant in which the prescription can be fine-tuned and customized after implantation in the eye, using an office-based UV light source called a Light Delivery Device (LDD) available here at Monson Vision. 

Monson Vision is among the first in the country and the only practice in the region to offer the full spectrum of state-of-the-art Advanced Cataract technology including Light Adjustable lenses.

Mechanism of Action

The lens has special particles called macromers which are distributed throughout the lens. The particles exposed to light connect other particles, forming polymers. The remaining detached particles move to the exposed area, this movement causes a highly predictable change in the curvature of the lens thus matching the prescription the patient selected during the eye exam.

Through optimization by the eye doctor after lens implantation, the patient will go through a series of office-based light treatment procedures using the LDD. These treatments take only a few minutes each and will give the ability to adjust the vision to specific needs.

Why Choose Light Adjustable Lenses?

The Light Adjustable Lens conveys the best visual outcomes that non-adjustable IOLs cannot match.

“In a study of 600 subjects, those who received the Light Adjustable Lens followed by adjustments were twice as likely to achieve 20/20 distance vision at 6 months without glasses as those who received a standard monofocal IOL.” RxSight

Patients will have the special ability to adjust and preview their vision until it meets their personal desires. 

Post-Cataract Surgery

The UV-blocking glasses provided to the patient after cataract surgery are designed to protect the Light Adjustable Lens from any light sources other than the Light Delivery Device (LDD). Exposing the lens implant to other light sources may result in potential change in the lens correction. 

The minimum number of treatments is 2 with a maximum of 5 when it comes to Light Adjustable Lens. Because you are adjusting and customizing the patients vision to their personal desires, it will take time for them to preview their vision before setting the lens.
