Price Vision Group in Indianapolis is proud to offer the Light Adjustable Lens™ for our cataract surgery patients. The lens is made of a special material that was designed by a Nobel Prize-winning scientist and is the first intraocular lens (IOL) that allows the physicians of Price Vision Group to optimize your vision following cataract surgery.
With the Light Adjustable Lens, you can now customize your vision after your cataract surgery. You will have the unique ability to adjust and preview your vision until it meets your personal desires and lifestyle requirements. This optimization is done by Price Vision Group eye doctors after lens implantation through a series of office-based light treatment procedures that take only a few minutes each.
The Light Adjustable Lens delivers superior visual outcomes that non-adjustable IOLs cannot match.¹ In a study of 600 subjects, those who received the Light Adjustable Lens followed by adjustments were twice as likely to achieve 20/20 distance vision at 6 months without glasses as those who received a standard monofocal IOL.
The Light Adjustable Lens is the only adjustable intraocular lens (IOL) available that allows optimization of your vision after lens implantation and healing. If you and your Price Vision Group doctor select the Light Adjustable Lens, the first step is to have your cataract safely removed and the adjustable IOL implanted. The cataract removal and IOL implantation procedure are the same as if you selected a standard, non-adjustable IOL.
What is unique about the Light Adjustable Lens is that once your eye has healed, you return to Price Vision Group to have your vision tested. During this visit, you will be able to preview and compare possible vision outcomes based on your unique preferences and lifestyle requirements before selecting a prescription for your adjustable lens. Your doctor will then apply a proprietary light treatment that precisely reshapes your implanted lens based on the visual correction that is needed to target your custom prescription. You may need 2 to 4 total light treatments over a period of 1 to 2 weeks to reach your vision goals.
The 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. Light treatments are performed at Price Vision Group’s office with the Light Delivery Device (LDD).
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the Light Adjustable Lens and Light Delivery Device for patients with pre-existing astigmatism of 0.75 diopters or more who are undergoing cataract surgery. Other commercially available IOLs may be available for the treatment of your cataracts and your doctor will help you determine which lens is right for you.
