Crystalens 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.

Crystalens is

  • 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.
