PURPOSE: To determine whether residual hyperopia could be corrected postoperatively using the light adjustable lens technology in patients undergoing cataract surgery and light adjustable lens implantation. DESIGN: Prospective, nonrandomized clinical trial. METHODS: Fourteen eyes of 14 patients were studied. The manifest refraction, uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA), and best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) were determined with follow-up time to determine the achieved refractive corrections and their stability. RESULTS: Of 14 eyes, 13 eyes (92.9%) achieved +/- 0.25 diopters (D) of the target refraction at one day post lock-in, with 100% of the eyes achieving the targeted refractive adjustment within 0.5 D or better up to six months postoperative follow-up. All eyes treated show no change in manifest spherical refraction >0.25 D between one day post lock-in, and three and six months postoperative visits.
