Advanced Lens Implants

Light Adjustable Lens

The Light Adjustable Lens is the first and only lens adjusted specifically for your eyes after cataract surgery. This particular lens is made of a special photosensitive material that changes the power of your implanted lens in response to ultraviolet (UV) light, increasing the likelihood that you will achieve your desired vision after cataract surgery. Once your eye has healed, you and your doctor will select a custom prescription for your adjustable lens based on your eyes and unique lifestyle requirements.

After surgery you can expect 2 to 5 total light treatments with each treatment lasting approximately 90 seconds. The number of treatments is based on you and your doctor’s desired outcome. Exposure to indoor and outdoor sources of UV light can cause uncontrolled changes to the Light Adjustable Lens, so you will be provided with UV protective glasses to wear from time of lens implantation until after the last light treatment, about 4 to 5 weeks in duration.

 

 

Intraocular Lens

 

Intraocular Lens

An Intraocular Lens (IOL) is a lens that is implanted in your eye during cataract surgery to replace the natural lens that has become a cataract. There are many options that include multifocal IOLs, astigmatism correcting IOLs, or monofocal IOLs. While standard monofocal IOLs often suffice for distance vision, there are now highly advanced multifocal IOLs that can provide you with a full range of vision again, greatly reducing or even eliminating the need for glasses following cataract surgery. Toric IOLs replace your eyes’ natural clouded lens during cataract surgery and have the ability to reduce or eliminate corneal astigmatism while correcting cataracts.

There are also advanced lenses that improve vision for night driving – which may provide a safety benefit for older drivers. The objective is not simply to improve patients’ distance vision, but rather to enhance their vision at all ranges with an IOL that fits their individual needs, often reducing the need for glasses in the process. Dr. Tyson or Dr. Stephens will work with you to select the lens that best enhances your lifestyle.
