Light Adjustable Lens (LAL) is the first and only FDA-approved lens that can be customized after surgery. This intraocular lens (IOL) allows your physician to design and optimize your vision after implantation of the lens, giving you the unique ability to adjust and preview your vised based on your personal desires and lifestyle requirements. Feinerman Vision is proud to be one of the only centers in California to offer one of the most technologically advanced IOL in the US.
The Light Adjustable Lens delivers superior visual outcomes that non-adjustable IOLs cannot match¹ . In a study of 600 subjects, those who received the Light Adjustable Lens followed by adjustments were twice as likely to achieve 20/20 distance vision at 6 months without glasses as those who received a standard monofocal IOL.
Cataract Removal and
The first step is to have your cataract(s) safely removed. After the cataract has been removed the adjustable IOL is implanted. The cataract removal and IOL implantation procedure is similar to any other type of non-adjustable IOL surgery. The cataract procedure—performed by Dr. Feinerman—is virtually painless and takes only about 15 minutes total.
LENS ADJUSTMENT AND
When the eye has healed, the Dr. Feinerman will evaluate your vision and preview and compare possible vision outcomes based on your unique preferences and lifestyle requirements. He will then apply a proprietary light treatment that precisely reshapes your implanted lens based on the visual correction that is needed to target your custom prescription.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the Light Adjustable Lens and Light Delivery Device for patients with pre-existing astigmatism of 0.75 diopters or more who are undergoing cataract surgery. Other commercially available IOLs may be available for the treatment of your cataracts and your doctor will help you determine which lens is right for you.
