What to Expect

What to Expect Following Your Cataract Surgery

After your Light Adjustable Lens™ has been implanted in your eye, it is adjusted to deliver the customized vision you desire. This means that there are 2 major differences following your surgery as compared to a non-adjustable intraocular lens (IOL):

  1. Required wear of ultraviolet (UV) protective glasses
  2. Completion of light treatments

Why do I need to wear protective glasses?

Exposure to indoor and outdoor sources of UV light can cause uncontrolled changes to the Light Adjustable Lens. To prevent this, you will be provided with UV protective glasses to wear immediately following surgery during all waking hours (from time of lens implantation until after the last light treatment is completed).

Your protective glasses may be removed when sleeping, and may be temporarily removed when showering, washing your face, or applying eye drops as long as you are not exposed to direct sunlight. Twenty-four hours after your final light treatment, no further changes can be made to the implanted Light Adjustable Lens, and you can remove the UV protective glasses and enjoy your custom vision!

You must wear the clear pair of UV protective glasses during all waking hours while indoors.

You must wear the tinted pair when outside during daylight hours.

How are the light treatments performed?

To receive the light treatment, you will be placed in front of the office-based Light Delivery Device (LDD). The LDD non-invasively delivers the UV light to your Light Adjustable Lens to adjust your vision to the desired target. The system gives your doctor the flexibility to make adjustments and refinements to meet your specific criteria. Following the light treatment, you will be rechecked in approximately 3 days to assess your vision.

Light treatments are delivered in your doctor’s office with the Light Delivery Device.

Between 2 and 4 total light treatments, each lasting approximately 90 seconds and separated by approximately 3 days, are required. The total number of light treatments is based on achievement of the desired vision outcome that you and your doctor selected. When you experience the results of your adjustments, you will better understand the value of adjusting and customizing your vision after your surgery.

Once you have achieved your optimal vision, the lens power is permanently locked in with a final light treatment to prevent any further changes.
