What Is the Best Lens Option for Post Refractive Patients With Cataracts?

Featured Image

Post cataract refraction can be a concern for many patients who have undergone procedures to remove their cataracts. The refractive error can cause blurred vision at varying distances. Although it will not occur in all situations, some people who undergo cataract removal surgeries and lens replacements may still experience post-cataract refraction.

The good news is that there’s a lens out there that will help patients with post-cataract refraction to keep their eyesight intact. The Light Adjustable Lens by RxSight® is a unique lens for patients who need assistance with their eyesight following cataract surgery. At Kirk Eye Center in River Forest or Gurnee, IL, we are proud to offer the Light Adjustable Lens for our patients in the Chicago area.

We can help you with the new lens by implanting it following your cataract-removal surgery. This procedure will help restore your eyesight, plus it can be adjusted based on whatever unique needs you have for your eyesight.

How does the Light Adjustable Lens by RxSight Work?

The Light Adjustable Lens from RxSight is an intraocular lens that helps you improve your vision following cataract surgery. The lens is implanted in your eye during the initial cataract removal process. The lens features a photosensitive silicone material that helps you adjust your eyesight in response to light.

Following the procedure, you will require a few UV light treatments to customize how well you see. A light-based material will deliver low-intensity UV light to your eye to adjust how the lens is shaped. You can preview your eyesight after each process, and you can request it be adjusted until it reaches whatever results you desire. The process makes it easier for you to receive the eyesight you deserve following cataract surgery.

How long does the procedure take?

While the expert team at the Kirk Eye Center will work our hardest to ensure you receive the care you deserve the first time around, it may take about 2 – 4 sessions to attain the best results. These sessions are spaced out by a few days on average, meaning it could take 1 – 2 weeks for your results to fully actualize.

The great news is that the procedure can help you attain 20/20 distance vision with just a few treatments. It is more effective than if you were to receive a monofocal intraocular lens because of the quality of the material.
