Wang Vision Institute published the world’s first textbook on this technology (Refractive Lens Exchange).

Our Nashville, TN office was the first in Tennessee and one of the first in the nation to offer patients this new and advanced surgery. Designed to help patients in their 40s and over with age-related vision loss or presbyopia, Forever Young lens surgery is a comprehensive procedure that can improve vision and reduce an individual's dependence on glasses and contacts. When performed at Wang Vision Institute, our team of skilled eye surgeons utilizes the most advanced lens technology, including but not limited to the newly available trifocal intraocular lens. These lenses are intended for patients with presbyopia to improve both near and distance sight. This innovative new technique gets its name ("forever young") from the effects the lens has on a patient's reading ability and reduced dependence on glasses, keeping the patient’s eyes “Forever Young.” If you've been diagnosed with presbyopia and would like to learn more about Forever Young lens surgery, contact our office and speak to a member of our team.

What are the benefits of Forever Young lens surgery?

Presbyopia is a common but frustrating condition that makes it difficult to focus on nearby objects. If you have been diagnosed with age-related vision loss, you know how annoying it can be to rely on reading glasses or bifocals. With Forever Young lens surgery, you can finally say goodbye to those pesky readers! Benefits of this procedure include:

  • Improved reading vision
  • Reduced dependence on glasses or contacts
  • Sharper, clearer vision overall

Our team members understand the challenges that come with presbyopia, and we are here to help. Surgery is safe, effective, and can be life-changing for the right candidates.

Who is a candidate for Forever young lens surgery?

The best candidates to receive Forever Young lens surgery are usually those who are 45 years of age or over (though this can depend) who have been diagnosed with age-related vision loss (presbyopia). To determine your candidacy for the procedure, one of our doctors will conduct a comprehensive eye evaluation and assess your current eye health, condition, medical history, and goals for treatment.

You may not qualify to undergo this surgery if you have certain corneal diseases, eye conditions or infections, or other medical disorders that can slow or prevent healing. Although the majority of patients who receive this treatment are those in their 40s or beyond with presbyopia, Forever Young lens surgery has also worked for younger patients. Contact Wang Vision Institute to schedule your consultative appointment and find out if you could benefit from Forever Young lens surgery.

TECHNOLOGIES we use in forever young lens surgery

To carry out Forever Young lens surgery, our surgeons use a combination of the four following technologies and techniques to produce excellent results:

  • Smart Eye Surgery: We utilize this breakthrough intra-operative technology to “test drive” the implanted lens. This helps to determine if the selected lens is the best for you and allows us to make adjustments as needed before the surgery is finished.
  • TrueVision HD System: The TrueVision system projects a high-definition image of your eye onto a large screen during surgery. This gives our team the ability to import (in real-time) pre-operative corneal topographic images, which position and align your eye more precisely for astigmatism treatment.
  • Laser Lens Surgery: Lens surgery with a laser is bladeless and much more accurate when compared to traditional lens surgery.
  • Laser Astigmatism Treatment: Like laser lens surgery, laser astigmatism treatment utilizes advanced technology to precisely correct astigmatism.

What to expect after Forever Young lens surgery

Wang Vision Institute provides every patient with comprehensive post-operative care. During your post-op visits, we closely monitor your eye health and vision to ensure you are healing properly and achieving the best possible results. Side effects following Forever Young lens surgery are typically mild and short-lived, with most patients reporting some discomfort, light sensitivity, and/or blurriness. These symptoms generally resolve within a short period depending on the individual.

How long do lens implants last?
Lens implants do not need to be replaced and should last forever. It is still important that you continue to attend routine eye exams to have the health of your eyes evaluated. Our team can let you know the best way to promote optimal eye health.

Can you have a LASIK procedure after lens replacement surgery?

Is lens replacement surgery painful?

Generally, our patients don't find this procedure to cause any discomfort. We use numbing drops that completely eliminate any feeling from the area, making it as comfortable as possible. In some cases, there may be some light discomfort in the hours after the surgery, but this can be solved with medication and will subside within a short time.

How long does it take to perform lens replacement surgery?

The surgery itself is very brief. In most cases, it can be performed in about 15 – 30 minutes. This means you can be in and out of our office as soon as possible and back home where you can relax.

Will I need someone to accompany me to my eye lens replacement surgery?

Yes. You won't be able to drive after the procedure, so you'll need someone who can safely transport you back home. Fortunately, the procedure is short so they won't have to take much time out of their day.
