CODET Featured in EyeWorld: “Insights on the Light Adjustable Lens”
EyeWorld, a renowned magazine that provides comprehensive ophthalmic news, the latest clinical information and exclusive publications, reached out to us for information and updates regarding the LAL.
The growing demand to offer patients with predictable and accurate postoperative outcomes has created much interest in learning more about technologies and updates in the field of ophthalmology, so it turns out to be of great interest, to both patients and ophthalmologists, technologies such as the Light Adjustable Lens (LAL).
EyeWorld, a renowned magazine that provides comprehensive ophthalmic news, the latest clinical information and exclusive publications, reached out to us for information and updates regarding the LAL. On the September 2020 issue, CODET featured in “Insights on the Light Adjustable Lens”, an article where Dr. Arturo Chayet shared his thoughts and experience with this lens.
Dr. Arturo Chayet explains the benefits of using the Light Adjustable Lens unlike other IOLs: “This is a lens that can adjust once the intraocular lens is inside the capsular bag. Usually we adjust it after 2 weeks. The benefit is that we can achieve emmetropia. We can also avoid some higher aberrations, such as glare and halo, that can often occur with other lenses” Dr. Chayet says.
Dr. Chayet acknowledges some fear retinal damage from the UV light treatment, but he says that in 20 years of research with the LAL, retina damage hasn’t been observed. It is important, however, for surgeons to identify and tell patients to stop taking any medications or supplements that could cause photosensitivity, several weeks prior to the treatment.
