Lumea leads the way with revolutionary cataract surgery
TORONTO, ONTARIO, Feb. 20, 2023 – Toronto refractive surgeons and cofounders of Lumea, Dr. Baseer Khan and Dr. Paul Sanghera, are the first ophthalmologists in Canada to offer a revolutionary adjustable cataract surgery. This ground-breaking technology utilizes RxSight’s customizable Light Adjustable Lens® (LAL) technology.
The LAL state-of-the-art technology is the only intraocular lens implant that enables ophthalmologists to customize a patient’s vision after cataract surgery. Prior to the Light Adjustable Lens (LAL), if a patient was unsatisfied with their vision after cataract surgery, their options were to correct the prescription with glasses or undergo additional surgery.
Dr. Paul Sanghera, who recently performed the first surgery said, “The Light Adjustable Lens is a revolutionary technology for cataract surgery patients. People now have the ability to preview and adjust their vision up to three times after lens implantation through a series of office-based light treatment procedures that take only a few minutes.”
LAL is implanted using standard cataract surgery techniques. When the eye has healed after surgery, the patient's ability to see near and far is assessed to determine what type of adjustment must be made to the LAL to provide the desired visual outcome.
“We’re thrilled to be the first surgery centre in Canada to offer this technology to our cataract patients,” said Dr. Baseer Khan. “What’s revolutionary about this system is that although adjustments are made postoperatively, they are not “locked in” immediately. Patients can test-drive different refracts and choose what works best for them.”
