Until recently, patients facing cataract surgery couldn’t always count on getting the results they hoped for. Residual refractive error was common and dependent on how a patient heals and where the lens settled after surgery. To tweak vision issues, the options were additional surgeries or corrective lenses—until now. The first and only intraocular lens (IOL) that can be customized after cataract surgery, RxSight Light Adjustable Lens offers patients new hope to get it right, with just one surgery.
Georgia Eye Partners offers this new innovation in cataract surgery to their patients, giving those struggling with cataracts a leg up and the promise of dependable and clear vision. Although a new advancement, studies already show that patients who received the RxSight Light Adjustable Lens followed by adjustments were twice as likely to achieve 20/20 vision at the six-month mark without having to wear glasses than those who received a standard monofocal IOL.
The RxSight Light Adjustable Lens is made of a special photosensitive material that changes the shape and power of your implanted lens in response to ultraviolet (UV) light. In the weeks following a cataract surgery, the physicians at Georgia Eye Partners optimize the fit and responsiveness of your lens through a series of short, noninvasive light treatments. Throughout the process patients have the unique ability to adjust and preview their vision until it’s exactly what they want and need.
Patients may need up to 3-4 total light treatments to reach their vision goals. In the meantime, they wear special UV protective glasses to protect the lens from light exposure that may potentially change the lens. Once clients reach their goals one final light
treatment is done to solidify their results. That’s it!
RxSight Light Adjustable Lens are truly a game-changer for cataract surgery patients. With the help of this new technology Georgia Eye Partners skilled physicians can restore quality of life from the patient’s perspective, literally.
