Crystalens® IOL, a intraocular lens (IOL), can be the remedy for presbyopia, as well as the loss of near and intermediate vision. This lens can be implanted during catarct surgery. Most people experience a loss in their ability to focus up close, which usually begins in their forties, and requires the reliance on reading glasses. The Crystalens® implant offers the ability to reduce the dependency on glasses and contacts by recreating the accommodation similar to the eye’s natural lens. This lifestyle intraocular lens may reduce or eliminate the need for glasses for most activities including: reading a watch, working on the computer and reading signs while driving.
Crystalens® is designed to allow the optic, to move back and forth, as you constantly change focus on images around you. The Crystalens® moves, using the eye’s natural focusing mechanism, instead of remaining fixed and stationary within the eye. This particular, the Crystalens® provides significant advantages in addressing intermediate vision. After the Crystalens® surgery, most patients see brighter and clearer from near, intermediate and distance, similar to when they were younger.
The Crystalens® Difference
Few patients with Crystalens® have experienced problems with glare, halos and night vision. Crystalens® focuses only one image to the back of the eye, unlike a multifocal lens that projects multiple images, requiring your brain to “adjust to the differences.
