Why Do I Have to Wear UV Protected Glasses?

The Light Adjustable Lens (LAL) is fine-tuned with UV light during your recovery. To prevent accidental adjustments before the final lock-in, we recommend wearing UV-protective glasses for 2-5 weeks after surgery, especially when going outdoors in bright sunlight. The LAL features an “active shield”, which minimizes power shifts, offering peace of mind if you do forget your glasses. But wearing UV glasses is recommended for optimal results.
