Advanced Eye & Laser Center of California, Inc., offers San Diego patients the option of choosing the Crystalens intraocular lens to replace their cloudy natural lens. Crystalens is an FDA-approved artificial lens equipped with the power of accommodation, the ability to change focus using the eye’s natural focusing ability. With Crystalens, a single focal point is maintained throughout the spectrum of vision from near to far distances. Designed with a special hinge, the optic part of the lens is able to move back and forth while focus is changed.
Crystalens is so amazing because it works with the eye muscles to accommodate vision and adjust to your needs instantaneously!
Cataract surgery patients with presbyopia will appreciate the unique accommodation ability of Crystalens. In presbyopia, the eye’s natural lens loses its ability to change shape, preventing the eye from focusing correctly on up-close objects. Because Crystalens has this accommodation ability built right in, there’s no need for reading glasses after your new lens is implanted!
Crystalens may be used for patients who a) are undergoing cataract removal with or without presbyopia, or b) have lenses that lost the ability to accommodate due to presbyopia.
