Restore Your Sight With Premium Cataract Surgery

Premium Cataract Surgery is a procedure where we remove the cloudy lens inside the eye and replace it with an intraocular lens. This lens will remain in place for the rest of your life so the choice of which lens is proper for you is important and is made in consultation with your team at Mississippi Eye Associates. Since there are several choices of implants that are available, we will spend time with you helping to make a decision that will meet your needs. Clearly, one of the most amazing advances in implant technology is the RX Sight Light Adjustable Lens. This is an amazing implant that when used in cataract surgery can be adjusted after the surgery to fine tune a patient’s post op vision. With traditional intraocular lenses (IOLs), your physician performs measurements before your surgery in order to select the best IOL to try to achieve your vision goals. Once your surgery is complete and the IOL has been implanted, your physician has limited options to adjust the lens power.

With the RxSight™ Light Adjustable Lens, you and your doctor can now customize your vision after your eye has healed from cataract surgery. This is because the Light Adjustable Lens is made of a special photosensitive material that changes the shape and power of your implanted lens in response to ultraviolet (UV) light. You and your physician will have the unique ability to adjust and preview your vision until it meets your personal desires and lifestyle requirements. The cataract removal and IOL implantation procedure is the same as if you selected a non-adjustable IOL. Then, in the weeks that follow, your physician will customize your vision through a series of non-invasive light treatments that take only a few minutes each. You may need 3 to 5 total light treatments over a period of 1 to 2 weeks to reach your vision goals. Once your vision is adjusted, a final light treatment is used to lock in the results. The Light Adjustable Lens delivers superior vision outcomes that non-adjustable IOLs cannot match. In a clinical study, the majority of patients who received the Light Adjustable Lens achieved 20/20 or better vision at 6 months without glasses.
