The All-New Light Adjustable Lens from RxSight

A Revolution in the Field of Vision Correction

Despite numerous advancements in modern phacorefractive and cataract surgery technologies, some patients would like to achieve better visual outcomes. That's why RxSight has developed the first IOL (Intraocular Lens) that allows the ophthalmologist to optimize vision after the operation.

UV Light Treatment

The Light Delivery Device (LDD) non-invasively delivers UV light to the adjustable lens to calibrate vision to the desired objective. The system provides the physician with the flexibility to make adjustments and refinements to meet the specific criteria of each patient.

Fixed Lenses
and Adjustable Lenses

With other lenses, you have to make numerous decisions about the vision you want before your refractive surgery. Once implanted, these lenses cannot be modified; they are considered fixed.

The adjustable lens, on the other hand, is a lens that can be modified. This means that the only decision you have to make before your procedure is the choice of the lens. Other decisions can be made after the operation, once the eye has healed.

You and your surgeon then have the opportunity to adjust the lens and optimize your vision based on your preferences and lifestyle. This way, you will benefit from vision that is truly your own.

Who is This Type of Lens For?

  • Anyone aged 40 and above
  • With or without the presence of cataracts
  • Nearsightedness, farsightedness, presbyopia, and astigmatism

Light Treatments Schedule

Ultraviolet light treatments will be carried out in your doctor's office after your eye has healed. Depending on the desired visual outcome, you may undergo 1 to 3 light treatments, followed by two locking treatments to prevent further changes.

What to Expect After Surgery

Approximately three weeks after your cataract surgery, you will visit your doctor to begin light treatments to customize your vision. During these sessions, you and your doctor will collaborate to achieve the best possible visual result that suits your lifestyle.

Studies have shown that patients who received the Light Adjustable Lens and the recommended postoperative treatments were almost twice as likely to achieve 20/20 vision or better without glasses, compared to cataract surgery patients with standard lens implants.

Following your procedure, you will also need to wear UV protection glasses.

During the adjustment phase of your vision, it will be necessary to wear glasses that prevent UV light from altering your lens to protect it before the final locking.
