The First and Only Lens That Can Be Customized After Cataract Surgery

Chico Eye Center, a local leader in refractive and cataract surgery, is now the first practice in the north state to offer the revolutionary new lens implant, the Light Adjustable Lens by RxSight.

Light Adjustable Lens (LAL)

Using a special lens material designed by a Nobel Prize winning scientist, RxSight has developed the first intraocular lens (IOL) that allows you and your physician to optimize your vision following cataract surgery.
Despite numerous advances in modern cataract surgery technologies, only about 50% of patients achieve their targeted distance vision without glasses,¹ and an even smaller percentage achieve excellent vision at all distances. This is because it is very difficult to predict how your eye will heal before your cataract surgery.
With the Light Adjustable Lens, you can now customize your vision after your cataract surgery. You will have the unique ability to adjust and preview your vision until it meets your personal desires and lifestyle requirements. This optimization is done by your eye doctor after lens implantation through a series of office-based light treatment procedures that take only a few minutes each.
The Light Adjustable Lens delivers superior visual outcomes that non-adjustable IOLs cannot match. In a study of 600 subjects, those who received the Light Adjustable Lens followed by adjustments were twice as likely to achieve 20/20 distance vision at 6 months without glasses as those who received a standard monofocal IOL.
