Crystalens accommodating lens
The Crystalens is designed to mimic the flexibility of the natural lens by including a hinge that flexes forward and backward based on the eye’s natural muscle movements.
The lens rests back in the eye for distance vision, flexes forward for intermediate vision, and flexes further forward into the front of the eye for near vision.
S., and if you choose an experienced eye surgeon, risk is minimal.
Most commonly the lens is removed with ultrasound rather than a laser to break up the lens with the cataract before removing it.
Over time, cataracts cloud the lens and do not allow light to reach the retina, producing blurred vision.
: Crystalens moves and changes shape using the eye’s natural focusing mechanism to focus on objects across a broad range of distances.
The Crystalens excels in providing clarity without glasses for far and mid-range vision.
That said, we do advise patients that they may at times prefer low-level, over-the-counter reading glasses ( 1.25 or 1.50) to read small print comfortably.
Presbyopia is an age-related condition that generally happens between the ages of 40 and 50.
The condition prevents the eye from focusing at all distances and causes blurry vision, especially close-up.
