After cataract surgery, you can expect some initial discomfort and mild irritation, which can be managed with prescribed medication. Your eye will need time to heal, and your vision may fluctuate during the recovery period.

UV-blocking glasses are essential to protect the Light Adjustable Lens® from unintended exposure to ultraviolet light, which could cause unintended changes to the lens's refractive power.

You will need to wear UV-blocking glasses until the lock-in protocol is complete, which ensures that the adjustments made to the lens are permanently set. Your eye surgeon will advise you on the duration based on your individual healing process.

Wearing the UV-blocking glasses we provide is essential, as they are specifically designed to protect your eyes during healing.

If you lose or break your UV-blocking glasses, contact us immediately to obtain a replacement. Until you have the appropriate protection, avoid prolonged sunlight or UV light exposure.

After surgery, it's important to avoid strenuous activities, rubbing your eyes or exposing them to water. Follow the post-operative instructions provided by your surgeon for the best recovery outcomes.

If you forget to wear your UV-blocking glasses, try to minimize your exposure to direct sunlight or UV light until you can resume wearing the glasses. Contact your surgeon's office for further guidance.

The number of light treatments needed varies for each individual and depends on the specific adjustments required. Typically, patients may require two to four adjustment sessions.

The light treatments are non-invasive and generally well-tolerated. Patients may experience a sensation of warmth or mild discomfort during the treatment, but it is usually manageable.

After each light treatment, you may experience some temporary sensitivity to light and minor discomfort, which should subside within a short period. Your vision may continue to improve gradually following each session.

Potential risks and complications associated with the Light Adjustable Lens® procedure may include infection, inflammation, increased intraocular pressure, and the need for additional corrective procedures. Our expert team will discuss these risks with you and provide detailed information on minimizing them.

Vision improvements can vary among individuals, but many patients notice enhanced visual acuity within the first few weeks following the Light Adjustable Lens® procedure. Attending all post-operative appointments is vital to monitoring progress and ensuring optimal outcomes.

The Light Adjustable Lens® procedure aims to provide tailored vision correction, potentially reducing the need for glasses or contact lenses. While many patients achieve excellent visual acuity without needing corrective eyewear, individual results may vary.

Following the Light Adjustable Lens® procedure, regular follow-up appointments are essential to monitor your eye health and the progress of your vision correction. Rest assured, we will provide a personalized follow-up schedule to ensure the best long-term outcomes.

Patients who have undergone previous refractive procedures, such as LASIK or PRK, may still be candidates for the Light Adjustable Lens® procedure.
