Maloney-Shamie Vision Institute is one of the only centers in California to offer the most technologically advanced IOL available in the US: the Light Adjustable Lens (LAL).
Why Choose The LAL?
All lenses can deliver good vision, but nonadjustable lenses still cannot predictably yield optimal outcomes. And because every eye heals slightly differently after surgery, getting close to the predicted outcome is often the best result a patient can expect. If the visual target is not achieved, patients may need to wear glasses, contacts, or in some cases, have additional procedures such as LASIK surgery to achieve optimal results.
The Light Adjustable Lens (LAL) is the only IOL that enables our surgeons to design, trial and customize your vision after cataract surgery. Adjustability takes cataract surgery to the next level by giving you a lens customized specifically for your eyes. The Maloney-Shamie Vision Institute was a principal investigation site for the LAL during US FDA Trials and was the first center in California to offer the LAL when it became FDA-approved. In a FDA study of 600 subjects, those who received the LAL were twice as likely to achieve 20/20 vision without glasses.
