Is Crystalens right for you?
Crystalens is an artificial lens implant that, unlike a standard IOL, can treat both a person’s cataracts and presbyopia–loss of near and intermediate vision. Crystalens not only treats your cataracts, but many patients hardly if ever wear glasses after surgery. It does so by recreating accommodation similar to your eye’s natural lens.
Crystalens was modeled after the human eye. Like the natural lens, it is a lens implant that uses the eye muscles to flex and accommodate in order to focus on objects in the environment at all distances.
Crystalens is designed to allow the optic, or the central circular part of the lens that you see through, to move back and forth as you constantly change focus on images around you. Crystalens, like your natural lens, flexes as you focus your vision.
