New lens customizes your vision after cataract surgery

Each year more than 4 million Americans undergo cataract surgery to remove an aging, cloudy eye lens. With traditional cataract surgery, only distance or near vision—not both—can be restored, leaving patients dependent on glasses or contact lenses. Now there’s a new advanced alternative—the Light Adjustable Lens— that goes one step further by customizing your vision after cataract surgery. Your eye surgeon can adjust your new lens multiple times using office-based UV light treatments to achieve the best vision possible.

Hear board-certified ophthalmologist Donald Keller, MD, describe this advanced treatment option, as well as other innovations in cataract surgery.
