Light Adjustable Lens Implant



How LAL Works

UV Glasses


At Eastside Eye Physicians, we are excited to be one of the first providers of the Light Adjustable Lens from RXSight® in Michigan. Now your vision can be fine-tuned and optimized to your desire AFTER your cataract surgery. Adjustability takes cataract surgery to the next level by giving you a lens customized specifically for your eyes.


​​​​​​​Customization is done 2-4 weeks after the sceond eye surgery is completed, using a special UV light device. During this post-operative time period, special UV eyewear must be worn by the patients, and will be provided (see video above).


Multifocal and Extended Depth of Focus Lens

At Eastside Eye, we've been using advanced technology multifocal lenses for many years, now with the new generation Panoptix® Multifocal lens from Alcon, or the Extended Depth the focus lens Vivity® from Alcon. The Extended Depth of focus implant Eyehance® from Johnson and Johnson vision has also become very popular. All these lenses can correct astigmatism if needed with a Toric model, providing the opportunity for even sharper vision.


I heard there is a new laser procedure to help in cataract removal – what is this?

Yes – you may be a candidate for Catalys Femtosecond® laser-assisted cataract surgery. This is a very reproducible, painless technique to replace some of the least predictable and technically demanding steps of the procedure. It also allows the surgeon to soften your cataract before it is removed with the traditional ultrasound techniques. In addition, this laser is used to precisely correct residual corneal astigmatism, thereby improving your vision after surgery.


​​​​​​​Will I need glasses after my cataract surgery?

If you choose a multifocal's implant, there is a good chance you will not need glasses for many activities. If you are corrected with a traditional monofocal implant, you will need glasses for certain situations, especially for reading up close and still perhaps for distance and driving.

If you choose a new Light Adjustable Lens™, our goal is to create all around vision with good depth of focus for far and near, greatly reducing the need for eyeglasses or contacts.


Can the cataract ever come back?

No, the original cataract cannot come back, but sometimes the thin membrane that holds the lens implant in the eye can become cloudy and hazy. This is sometimes called a secondary cataract or secondary membrane. This opacity is easily and safely removed with a quick non-invasive laser procedure in the office called a YAG laser capsulotomy.

What is the recovery period?

Vision is often improved within hours of the procedure, and most people resume their normal daily activities, including work, within 1-2 days. Activities that could result in bumping or injuring the eye or exposing it to an unclean environment should be avoided for the first week or two. Your doctor will advise you on any other restrictions.
