Aloha Laser Vision Is First to Offer Light Adjustable Lens (LAL) in Hawaii
Aloha Laser Vision is once again first in providing the most advanced vision correction technology to its patients. Our board-certified ophthalmologists, Alan Faulkner, MD and Neda Nikpoor, MD, have now performed many successful cataract and refractive lens exchange (RLE) surgeries using the RxSight™ Light Adjustable Lens (LAL). This revolutionary intraocular lens (IOL) is made of a patented photosensitive material that can be refined post-operatively to deliver customized vision correction and eliminate the need for secondary surgery. Adjustments are made to the lens via quick, painless, ultraviolet (UV) light treatments. These adjustments make it the most accurate intraocular lens in the world, which means excellent quality of vision for patients. Studies have revealed that patients who have received the RxSight™ Light Adjustable Lens are more likely to achieve 20/20 vision without the need for glasses, contacts, or additional laser correction.
Both Dr. Faulkner and Dr. Nikpoor describe the RxSight™ Light Adjustable Lens as a “game changer” for cataract surgery and RLE patients. The LAL allows them to suit a wide range of patients’ vision correction needs with the least amount of surgical intervention. The lens is implanted during a single surgery, and then after a two to three week healing period, a series of two to five painless non-invasive UV-light treatments is all that’s required to further refine the lens to optimize the patient’s vision. So far, the overwhelming majority of Dr. Faulkner and Dr. Nikpoor’s patients are thrilled with the outcome of their procedure with the LAL.
If you are considering cataract surgery or refractive lens exchange (RLE) and want to achieve outstanding vision, a consultation with Dr. Faulkner or Dr. Nikpoor can determine whether the RxSight™ Light Adjustable Lens is right for you. At Aloha Laser Vision we also offer a broad range of other state-of-the-art IOLs and laser procedures that may be well suited to your needs.
