RxSIGHT™ LIGHT ADJUSTABLE LENS

Customize Your Vision After Cataract Surgery

The RxSight is implanted in the eye when a patient receives cataract surgery. Once the eyes have healed over the span of two or three weeks, the patient's vision is then adjusted by a series of office-based light treatment procedures that only take a few minutes each. During these procedures, the vision is corrected with the Light Delivery Device (LDD) in order to modify the shape of the lens, which alters your vision. The lens can be modified two to four times for optimal results, but not every patient will require the same amount of adjustments.

It is difficult to predict how your eyes will heal before cataract surgery, the RxSIGHT LAL allows for patients to preview and adjust their vision after the surgery until it meets their desired needs. Since the RxSight LAL is the only customizable lens that can be adjusted after surgery, it makes it that much more significant and desirable to patients.

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT RXSIGHT™?

  • The first and only adjustable intraocular lens (IOL) that allows your physician to customize your vision after your cataract surgery

  • Patients who received the Light Adjustable Lens followed by adjustments were twice as likely to achieve 20/20 vision at 6 months without glasses as those who received a standard monofocal IOL

  • The cataract removal and IOL implantation procedure is the same as if you selected a non-adjustable IOL

  • 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

  • You will have the unique ability to preview and compare possible vision outcomes based on your preferences and lifestyle requirements

  • Light treatments that precisely reshape your implanted lens are delivered in your doctor's office to adjust your vision to the desired target

  • Light treatments are painless, non-invasive, and last approximately 90 seconds

  • You may need 2 to 4 total light treatments over a period of 1 to 2 weeks to reach your vision goals

  • You will need to wear special UV protective glasses during all waking hours (from time of lens implantation until after the last light treatment is completed) to prevent exposure to indoor and outdoor sources of UV light that can cause uncontrolled changes to the Light Adjustable Lens
