Florida Eye Specialists, the largest multi-specialty eye practice in Northeast Florida, is readying to introduce the first cataract lens implant that can fine-tune vision after cataract surgery. This innovative technology, known as Light-Adjustable Lens™, enables cataract surgeons to make precise adjustments to patients' eyes, taking into account their individual preferences. This allows more patients to achieve 20/20 distance vision without glasses.
"Every patient heals differently after cataract surgery, so it can be difficult to predict vision outcomes," said CEO and managing partner Rajesh K. Shetty, MD. "We now have the power to adjust a patient's prescription until they see exactly how they want to, just like we would with glasses or contacts."
After cataract surgery with the Light-Adjustable Lens, patients meet with their eye doctor to test their vision. They then preview and compare prescription changes to choose the option that looks best to them. The ophthalmologist uses a series of three to five light treatments to customize the photosensitive material of the lens. Each treatment is painless and takes less than a minute to complete.
"At Florida Eye Specialists, we've always been on the forefront of new technologies and it's our priority to bring the latest advancements to our patients. That's why we're proud to be the first in Northeast Florida to offer this incredible technology," said Dr. Shetty. "We're not satisfied until our patients are thrilled with their sight."
Cataracts are a common eye condition that occurs when the lens of the eye becomes cloudy, leading to a decrease in vision.However, with the advancements in modern cataract surgery, patients can not only restore their vision, but also potentially achieve better visual acuity than ever before. Additionally, cataract surgery can lessen dependence on glasses and make everyday activities such as driving and reading effortless once more.
