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.

Our Technology

Precise laser assistance, best-in-class technology, and innovative techniques create an exceptional formula for safety, care and superior surgical outcomes. It’s an experience you won’t find at many other centers across the nation.
Laser Cataract

Few centers have technology this advanced.

The Allegretto family of lasers are the fastest and most precise laser systems for vision correction available in the U.S. Wavelight lasers represent a new generation of refractive technology far more recently designed than other laser platforms. They use technology referred to as High Performance Vision Correction, intended to achieve exceptional visual results under all lighting situations, day and night. The laser employs what is called Perfect Pulse Technology® to safely and accurately control every single laser pulse from start to finish. The flexible performance of Allegretto Wavefront Optimized® LASIK technology enables the correction of each individual’s unique refractive errors while preserving the cornea’s natural shape, effectively reducing side effects such as poor night vision, glare and halos.
That’s the precision of correction to gently shape the surface of the cornea with light.
Each laser vision correction procedure is customized for the refraction and corneal curvature of each patient. The focused light isn’t seen or felt, and imparts no burning sensation.
Monson Vision uses the fastest FDA-approved LASIK platform available in the country.
Each “burst” of the Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q 400Hz Laser lasts mere billionths of a second before the laser shifts to its next position-up to 100 times faster than some lasers. A correction of one diopter requires just two seconds of treatment. Which means shorter procedure times with increased accuracy.
After the WaveLight® Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q Laser procedure, patients are able to experience corrected vision. The laser offers highly customized cornea reshaping for the best possible results from almost any type of laser vision correction.
Clinical data presented to FDA showed that in a large group of patients, quality of night vision after treatment was better than night vision quality before treatment, with best glasses or contact lenses. This is a first in history.
Eyes make constant involuntary movements, even in LASIK surgery. The WaveLight® Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q Laser system includes a closed loop eye tracker that tracks the eye’s location during surgery to make sure that the eye has not moved before delivering the next pulse of laser energy. Eye movements are tracked with each laser pulse.
Perfect Pulse Technology controls every single pulse transmitted by the laser to ensure the accuracy, safety and speed of the procedure. With this monitoring, only every fifth pulse overlaps the previous one, reducing the risks of overheating the cornea. This also adds to the speed, precision and safety offered by the WaveLight® Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q Laser system.
  • More precise than any other femtosecond laser with positional accuracy ~3 microns rather than >6 with other, older femtosecond systems

  • Delivers better results at lower total energy outputs because the laser energy (fluence) is lower and more focused

  • Smart Bed treatment of the VisuMax is extremely sophisticated, helping maintain the perfect, gentle contact pressure optimal for flap creation

  • Curved contact surface employs a curved contact surface when rendering treatment to closely match the curve of the natural cornea

  • Much lower pressure than with all other femto systems and microkeratomes that is usually is accompanied by temporary loss of vision (a few seconds) — creating a better, more comfortable patient experience

  • For the engineers reading this description, the VisuMax delivery system is opto-electronic; all other femto systems use opto-mechanical design. This significant design difference allows greater positional accuracy and puts VisuMax in a class by itself. No other femto laser is capable of the spatial accuracy necessary for ReLeX SMILE.

HSA Facts

  • The 2020 contribution limit is $3,550 for individuals, $7,100 for families
  • An HSA is only available to participants with a high-deductible health care plan
  • Funds allocated to an HSA become available as they are deposited into the account

FSA Facts

  • The 2020 contribution limit is $2,750
  • An FSA must be sponsored by your employer; self-employed individuals are not eligible
  • An employee’s yearly FSA allocation is available on the first day of the plan year, regardless of contributions made to date
  • Use it or lose it – any money left in an FSA will be forfeited at the end of that year’s plan, though some plans do provide a short grace period that may allow you to carry over some funds into the next year. Check with your employer to see if your plan allows for a grace period
