What is a Light Adjustable Lens?

The First In Colorado To Offer This New Intraocular Lens Technology
from RxSight™

The RxSight™ Light Adjustable Lens is the first and only intraocular lens (IOL) that can be customized after cataract surgery. The Light Adjustable Lens is made of a special photosensitive material that can be adjusted in response to ultraviolet (UV) light. This optimization is done by your eye doctor in the weeks following lens implantation through a series of non-invasive light treatments that take only a few minutes each. You will have the unique ability to adjust and preview your vision until it meets your personal desires and lifestyle requirements.

Customizable Intraocular Lens: How It Works

With traditional intraocular lenses (IOLs), your physician performs measurements before your surgery in order to select the best IOL to try to achieve your vision goals. Once your surgery is complete and the IOL has been implanted, your physician has limited options to adjust the lens power.

With the RxSight™ Light Adjustable Lens, you and your doctor can now customize your vision after your eye has healed from cataract surgery. This is because 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 and your physician will have the unique ability to adjust and preview your vision until it meets your personal desires and lifestyle requirements.

The cataract removal and IOL implantation procedure are the same as if you selected a non-adjustable IOL. Then, in the weeks that follow, your physician will customize your vision through a series of non-invasive light treatments that take only a few minutes each. You may need 2 to 4 total light treatments over a period of 1 to 2 weeks to reach your vision goals. Once your vision is adjusted, the final light treatment is used to lock in the results.

FAQs -  Cataracts Surgery

The symptoms of cataracts include blurry vision, dull colors, glare from sunlight or lamps, and glare while night driving. Cataracts will eventually cause blindness if left untreated.

No. You cannot prevent cataracts from forming. This is a natural process that occurs to most people over age 60. After the clouding of the lens begins, it is impossible to return the lens to its original clear state with medications. Cataract surgery is the only way to improve your declining vision when you have cataracts.

The LenSx® laser allows our surgeons to automate some of the most challenging steps of cataract surgery using real-time, 3-D visualization for truly customized treatment. This results in better vision outcomes for our patients.

Optiwave Refractive Analysis (ORA) technology allows our doctors to provide real-time intraoperative measurements of your refractive error after the cloudy lens is removed – during surgery – so we can adjust the power of your replacement lens if necessary. This allows for a completely tailored procedure for you.

Patient Testimonials

If you have a baby with eye problems, this is the place to go and Dr. Patrick Arnold is the man to see. Our nine-month-old son has exotropia and today he had the surgery to help fix it. Everything went as perfectly as any parent sending their baby into surgery could possibly hope for. I’m mostly writing this review as a thank you to the nurses we worked with when we were in there.

I do a lot of outdoor activities in Colorado and with the dry air, my contact lenses were almost unbearable at times. That led me to looking in having LASIK surgery. The process was smooth and convenient. Now I can enjoy my activities with clear vision and pain free.

Dr. Arnold has been our saving grace with our son. We were referred to him by our eye doctor in Cheyenne, WY when we could get to the bottom of why my son’s eye wasn’t healing from what we thought were scratches. He has taken such great care of our son. He is so patient and makes the young patients and their parents feel as ease. So thankful for him.

As a radiologist, my career depends on my vision. I had always wanted to rid myself of my glasses but was hesitant to take the plunge. After several of my partners had the procedure done and reported great results, I had my LASIK done with Dr. Robinson. After wearing glasses for 35 years, it is wonderful to be able to see the world without them.
