Crystalens Intraocular Lens Replacement
Crystalens is a revolutionary new breakthrough in vision enhancement. It is the first and only intraocular lens (IOL) replacement that focuses like the eye's natural lens, allowing for continuous vision up close, far away and all distances in between. By using the eye's muscle to move the lens backward and forward naturally in response to the brain's desire to see at different distances, Crystalens, manufactured by Eyeonics, enables the eye to focus continuously and seamlessly through a range of distances.
Patients experience the same vision they had when they were younger, for most without the inconvenience of corrective lenses. However, it is important to note that not everyone will gain 20/20 vision at all distances after this procedure. It is also important to point out that even after having this procedure, you still may not be able to read or focus on objects in low light. As we get older, we lose our ability to focus on objects under these conditions. Our health and the health of our eyes will also determine the outcome of any type of refractive surgery.
The Crystalens implant procedure is a safe and proven refractive technique performed in an outpatient surgical facility. The procedure lasts about 20 minutes and is pain free. The Crystalens implant is inserted in place of the original lens. A small incision allows for quick healing and no stitches are required.
