How do light adjustable lenses work?
A light adjustable intraocular lens is made of photosensitive material that changes shape in response to a special ultraviolet light. This advanced lens allows our Beverly Hills eye specialist to precisely correct the lens power to correct your vision with greater precision after surgery. The ultraviolet light treatment is a quick, safe, and painless procedure.
How long do light adjustable lenses last?
The light adjustable lens is a prosthetic that should never need to be removed or replaced. The lens power adjustment should also last your lifetime.
Do light adjustable lenses carry any greater risk?
Light adjustable lenses carry the same risks as any laser cataract surgery. However, it is essential that you wear proper eyewear after surgery to protect the treated eye from daylight until your eye surgeon performs the ultraviolet light treatment to adjust the power of your lens.
