About Crystalens

Using advanced technology these new lenses focus light from distance objects, midrange and close. Many patients with these lenses no longer need to use glasses. Are you over the age of 45 and using progressive lenses or bifocals? Crystalens can help you have clear vision at all distances without having to tilt your chin up or down as you would with progressive or bifocal lenses. Or carry multiple pairs of glasses for distance, computer and reading.

What to Expect

Cataract surgery with Crystalens is identical to regular cataract surgery except for the type of lens implanted. As we age, both eyes usually develop cataracts, therefore the surgeon will typically wait 2 to 4 weeks before inserting the implant in the second eye.

Although clinical results have been excellent, it is important to understand that everyone's eyes are unique and results may vary. The risks, complications, and side effects associated with the implantation of the Crystalens are similar to the risks of intraocular lenses and cataract surgery. There is a slightly higher risk of glow around lights with these implants. Not everyone is a candidate for this procedure; your doctor will determine the associated risks and benefits as well as whether or not Crystalens is right for you during a pre-scheduled consultation.

If you are excited about once again being able to clearly perceive the world you live in, the Crystalens may be right for you. Find out from one of our doctors if you are a candidate for this exciting new advancement in intraocular lens technology.
