The unique feature of the Light Adjustable Lens is that the shape and focusing characteristics can be changed after

implantation in the eye using an office-based UV light source called a Light Delivery Device or LDD. The Light Adjustable

Lens itself has special particles (called macromers), which are distributed throughout the lens. When ultraviolet (UV)

light from the LDD is directed to a specific area of the lens, the particles in the path of the light connect with other

particles (forming polymers). The remaining unconnected particles then move to the exposed area. This movement

causes a highly predictable change in the curvature of the lens. The new shape of the lens will match the prescription

you selected during your eye exam.
