Light Adjustable Lens in Dallas, TX
The Lens for Post-Cataract Surgery Optimization
Light Adjustable Lens
At Key-Whitman Eye Center, we are very happy to offer our patients the Light Adjustable Lens by RXSight. What makes this lens unique is that you can “test-drive” your vision during the post-operative period and choose your final results. Once you’ve selected your final vision, your doctor “locks-in” your vision. Dr. Whitman calls it the “magic” lens.
How Does It Work?
Exactly like any cataract surgery, the cataract is removed and replaced with an implant. But the Light Adjustable Lens is manufactured with a special material that can be changed or altered when Ultra Violet (UV) light is applied. For this reason, it is important to wear UV protection until your final adjustments have been performed. Once you are fully healed after surgery, adjustments can be made and finalized usually at about 3-4 weeks after surgery.
How to Choose a Cataract Surgeon?
When selecting a surgeon to perform your cataract surgery, it is important to choose a board-certified eye surgeon, who is both highly experienced and able to offer you a full range of lens options to enhance your vision. At Key-Whitman, our doctors offer you the best of both.
