Developing a cataract doesn't mean a permanent loss of vision quality, or having to give up the things you love. Cataract surgery is the most commonly performed surgery in the UK, with well over 350,000 patients having the procedure every year. Typically done on an outpatient basis, the natural lens is removed and replaced with what is called an intraocular lens (IOL). The procedure is highly successful and most people regain very good vision.
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.)
