Light Adjustable Lens

Do you have cataracts and need cataract surgery? Before you can have the procedure, you first need to choose an intraocular lens. 

Mattioli Vision Partners in beautiful Houston, TX, is proud to offer our patients who need cataract surgery the revolutionary Light Adjustable Lens as one of many intraocular lens options!

What is the Light Adjustable Lens?

The Light Adjustable Lens is the first and only intraocular lens created that can customize visual outcomes for cataract patients after cataract surgery. With the Light Adjustable Lens, you can preview potential visual outcomes to customize your vision and make it work for you, rather than implanting an IOL and not having any control over how it affects your sight. 

The innovative intraocular lens offers a truly unique level of customization and adaptability to meet the needs of each patient, helping it revolutionize the world of IOLs and vision after cataract surgery. Patients with the Light Adjustable Lens implanted must wear light protection glasses at all times unless they are sleeping, showering, or sleeping. 

Wearing these glasses is crucial to keep the Light Adjustable Lens from accidentally changing its shape before your final light treatment. Dr. Fred Mattioli is acclaimed as one of the best eye care surgeons in Houston, ensuring that patients see clearly after receiving the Light Adjustable Lens.

Our Houston, Woodlands, Sugar Land, River Oaks, and West University area clinics make it easy to undergo cataract surgery while staying close to home. We offer a personalized approach that’s also innovative to give you your best eyesight while experiencing the life-changing effects of the Light Adjustable Lens implanted during cataract surgery.

How Does the Light Adjustable Lens Work?

The Light Adjustable Lens works because of a process called photochemistry. Photochemistry allows the Light Adjustable Lens, as its name suggests, to adjust and adapt using light after cataract surgery to provide precise vision correction tailored for each patient. 

The Light Adjustable Lens works because of the material it’s made from, which reacts to ultraviolet (UV) light. The lens remains flexible after the Light Adjustable Lens is implanted in the eye.

Using UV light supplied using a special light delivery device (LDD), Dr. Mattioli can fine-tune the Light Adjustable Lens and your desired prescription during a series of light treatments. Most patients only need about three light treatments before achieving their desired visual outcome. 

After this is achieved, Dr. Mattioli will lock your desired vision into place with a final light treatment, ensuring you can enjoy your custom vision for years to come. Once you’ve finished your last light treatment, you will no longer need to wear your light protection glasses.

What Makes the Light Adjustable Lens Stand Out from Other IOLs?

At first glance, the Light Adjustable Lens seems much like other intraocular lenses. It will be implanted in your eye during cataract surgery at Mattioli Vision Professionals, replacing your natural lens.

However, after that, it quickly becomes apparent that the Light Adjustable Lens stands out from the crowd, including with other premium IOLs. The most significant and evident way that the Light Adjustable Lens differs from other IOLs is that it puts the power of customization into the patient’s hands. 

No other IOL can do that. Even premium IOLs require Dr. Mattioli to determine their power before cataract surgery, meaning there is no way to adjust it after the procedure if necessary. 

But with the Light Adjustable Lens, you will have the vision you want, ensuring you’ll be comfortable and see clearly after cataract surgery. The Light Adjustable Lens is also incredibly beneficial for patients with astigmatism and those who have undergone previous eye procedures. 

Many patients who choose the Light Adjustable Lens reduce their dependence on visual aids, improving their quality of life.
