Yesterday, Vision Rejuvenation Victoria, a Canadian leader in advanced cataract and refractive lens exchange surgery, announced that it had become the first eyecare centre in Canada to implant the Light Adjustable Intraocular Lens from Calhoun Vision.

The Calhoun Vision LAL® Light Adjustable Lens is a technology used during cataract surgery that allows an implanted intraocular lens to be adjusted to a patient’s ideal individual visual requirements after implantation through the safe, fast and non-invasive application of light.
