LOGAN, Utah, March 15, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Monson Vision, a vision correction surgery center in Logan, Utah, has been recognized as the number one provider of the RxSight™ Light Adjustable Lens™ in the Intermountain United States. Dr. Bryan Monson, founder of Monson Vision, performed successful cataract surgery on his father, also an eye doctor, using the Light Adjustable Lens, and was featured in a video produced by RxSight™. The video showcases the benefits of the Light Adjustable Lens™ and discusses its benefits.
Traditionally, predicting vision and how the eye will heal following cataract surgery has been difficult, despite modern imaging and predictive technologies. Only six out of ten patients globally with cataracts achieve their exact intended targeted vision, and a smaller percentage achieve precision vision at all distances. According to surgeon Dr. Bryan K Monson, "Post-operatively, I can now refine a patient's vision according to their real-world observations and personal preferences. We perform this optimization by using a series of comfortable office-based light treatment procedures that each last several seconds. Without comparison, Light Adjustable Lenses are the most accurate cataract replacement technology ever developed. It is the future of lens-based vision restoration."
The Light Adjustable Lens provides superior visual outcomes that cannot be achieved by non-adjustable IOLs. According to a study involving 600 subjects, those who received the Light Adjustable Lens and adjustments were twice as likely to attain 20/20 distance vision without glasses after six months as those who received a standard monofocal IOL.
The Light Adjustable Lens™ is made from a hi-tech, light-responsive, biocompatible material created by a Nobel Prize-winning scientist. When exposed to a specific wavelength of UV light, it reacts in a very predictable, repeatable shape change. Depending on the pattern of UV light exposure, the lens can be altered to correct residual nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and even extended depth of field.
Adjustments are performed using a Light Delivery Device (LDD), which non-invasively delivers the UV light mathematical signal to the Light Adjustable Lens™ to adjust the vision to the desired target. Once the desired vision is achieved, the lenses are "locked-in" with a specific light treatment, imparting superior long-term vision to the patient for life.
The Light Adjustable Lens™ is a revolutionary advancement in vision correction surgery, improving the outcome of cataract surgery.
