is an artificial lens implant that, unlike a standard artificial lens implant, can treat both a person's cataracts and presbyopia (loss of near and intermediate vision).
Crystalens not only treats your cataracts (a clouding or hardening of your lens) but is also designed to provide you with a fuller, more natural range of vision. In fact, many patients hardly, if ever, wear glasses after surgery.
Crystalens was modeled after the human eye. Like the natural lens, it is a lens implant that uses the eye muscle to flex and accommodate in order to focus on objects in the environment at all distances. Crystalens dynamically adjusts to your visual needs.
- The first and only FDA-approved accommodating intraocular lens
- The only FDA-approved intraocular lens that uses the natural focusing ability of the eye
- The only FDA-approved presbyopia correcting IOL for cataract patients that provides a single focal point throughout a continuous range of vision
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.
