9 July, 2020 – Atlanta, GA – LOTUS VISION, a leading cataract and refractive surgery eye care center in North Atlanta, Georgia, has been honored as the first practice in the State to offer the Light Adjustable Lens (LAL) by RxSight. LAL, the first and only intraocular lens implant approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), is a revolutionary development in eye care that allows for refractive adjustments after cataract surgery to provide customized vision outcomes.
During cataract surgery, LOTUS VISION’s Dr. Ajit Nemi implants the Light Adjustable Lens in the same manner performed with conventional cataract surgery. Approximately two to three weeks following surgery, Dr. Ajit Nemi administers an office-based ultraviolet (UV) light treatment that adjusts the power of the intraocular lens implant to reduce or eliminate residual refractive errors. This can be repeated two to three times until the patient has achieved the desired vision outcome, while a final treatment “locks-in” the power of the intraocular lens implant and preserves the best vision outcome.
“The Light Adjustable Lens by RxSight is a truly disruptive technology because, for the first time ever, we can customize vision for our patients after cataract surgery once the eyes have healed,” remarked Dr. Ajit Nemi, a board-certified Ophthalmologist and Founder and President of LOTUS VISION. “We can eliminate any residual refractive error, such as astigmatism, to provide our patients with the sharpest distance vision possible. If a patient decides that he or she would like to reduce the need for reading eyeglasses, we can improve intermediate and near vision as well.”
A recent FDA study demonstrated that patients who received the Light Adjustable Lens were twice as likely to achieve 20/20 vision without glasses compared to patients who received the standard monofocal intraocular lens implants. The ideal candidate for this technology is someone wanting to achieve the best distance vision possible without eyeglasses or someone seeking reduced dependency on reading glasses with blended vision or monovision since this technology allows for adjustment of intermediate and near vision to a patient’s needs.
“When I started this practice from scratch in 2008, the goal was to create an eye care center that offered personalized, compassionate care in a setting unlike any other medical practice,” added Dr. Nemi. “For the first time, with the Light Adjustable Lens technology, we can provide a custom-tailored solution with superior outcomes for each of our patients undergoing cataract surgery.”
