Crystalens is:
The first and only FDA-approved accommodating intraocular lens.
The only FDA approved intraocular lens that uses natural focusing ability.
The only FDA approved presbyopia correcting IOL for cataract patients
that provides a single focal point throughout a continuous range of vision

 
 

Crystalens was the first presbyopia correcting IOL introduced into the United States market. Crystalens addresses the limitations of standard monofocal IOLs and multifocal IOLs by providing the following advantages to patients:

 
Provides a Broad Range of Vision: Crystalens moves and changes shape using the eye's natural focusing mechanism, instead of remaining fixed and stationary within the eye. This movement, or accommodation, allows the eye to focus on objects across a broad range of distances to reduce or eliminate dependence on glasses. In particular, this accommodation provides significant advantages in addressing intermediate vision.  

Maintains Clarity of Vision: Unlike multifocal lenses, Crystalens directs all available light received by the eye to a single focal point, comparable to that of a healthy natural lens.

 

Patient Adjustment Not Required: Crystalens produces a single image consistent with normal vision, meaning patients do not need to neuroadapt to viewing multiple images. Patients also do not need to tolerate or adjust to high levels of halos and glare often associated with multifocal IOLs.

 

Crystalens is an accommodating intraocular lens that, unlike a standard IOL, can treat both a person's cataracts and presbyopia-loss of near and intermediate vision.

 


You probably noticed in your forties that you started to lose some of your up-close vision and had to start wearing reading glasses. talens not only treats your cataracts (a clouding or hardening of your lens), but can also reduce or eliminate your dependence on glasses. It does so by recreating accommodation similar to your eye s natural lens. The unique crystalens can reduce or eliminate glasses for most activities including: reading a book, working on the computer, and driving a car.
 

Crystalens was modeled after the human eye.
Like the natural lens, it 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 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 flexes as you focus your 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.

The effectiveness of Crystalens was proven in clinical trials:
• Patients implanted with a Crystalens (88.4%) could see better at all distances then patients with a standard IOL (35.9%).
• Most patients have continued to report excellent vision 7 years after implantation with Crystalens.
• More than 100,000 crystalens implants have been implanted worldwide, and that number is growing daily.
• Crystalens accommodates like the natural lens. After implantation of Crystalens, most patients will see brighter and clearer from distance, intermediate to near like they did when they were younger.
