The procedure for implanting the Light Adjustable Lens during your cataract surgery is the same as the procedure for the usual non-adjustable intraocular lens. First, your doctor will safely remove the cataract from your eyes, after that, the Light Adjustable Lens will carefully be implanted.
After your eyes fully recover from the surgery, you will have to return to your doctor to have your vision tested during a routine eye exam. Based on the results of this eye exam, your doctor will create a customized prescription for your Light Adjustable Lens, taking into consideration your unique conditions and lifestyle requirements.
After your procedure is completed, you will be given UV protective glasses that you will have to wear. You can remove your glasses while sleeping, washing your face, showering, or applying your prescribed eye drops. These glasses will protect your LAL from making uncontrolled changes influenced by both indoor and outdoor exposure to UV light.
At Advanced Vision Care, we always take the post-recovery eye exam very seriously. We believe that it is an important part of the entire procedure, not less important than the surgery itself. Our goal is to provide you with the best vision possible after your cataract surgery, and the Light Adjustable Lens allows us to do that.
