What is Crystalens?

Crystalens, a single-focus lens, is a cataract replacement lens that works naturally with your eyes muscles to give you the quality of vision you enjoyed when you were younger.

What is Crystalens?

The revolutionary design element that makes Crystalens the state-of-the-art replacement lens are hinges which are designed to allow the lens to move, or accommodate to focus on objects near, far and all distances in-between seamlessly.

Crystalens IOL Lake County ILUnlike old-style fixed focal lenses, which didnt move, Crystalens has the ability to move, thus focusing as your eyes natural lens does. We will take precise measurements to insure the correct power selection.  We use IOLMaster mesurements, Immersion water bath ultrasound measurements and at least three different implant formulas, depending on your particular eye shape to decide on the lens implant power.

The Crystalens Procedure

The medical procedure to implant the Crystalens is the same safe, proven cataract surgery performed annually on over 7 million eyes globally. Over 65 million procedures have been done in the US in the last 25 years.

Typically performed in an outpatient surgical center, the actual surgery takes less than twenty minutes. In a pain free procedure, we will place a few drops in your eye, then use an ultrasonic probe to remove the cloudy lens from your eye. The Crystalens is then gently placed where your original lens used to be. Once surgery is complete, we will place additional drops in your eye to prevent infection and decrease inflammation.

Because the opening into the eye is so small, it heals very quickly.

With Crystalens, The Advantages Are Clear

The Crystalens offers significant advantages over other kinds of lens implants and corrective lenses.

Standard (single vision) lens implants dont have the ability to provide a full range of vision. Most people who have single vision lens implants MUST wear glasses for middle and near vision.

The Crystalens has the unique ability to focus on objects at varying distances using the eyes natural muscle. This means the Crystalens can provide sharper vision, without corrective lenses, throughout a full range of vision from near to far and everything in between.

The Crystalens FDA one-year clinical study results indicate that 92% of the people enrolled in the study (implanted bilaterally) could see 20/25 or better at distance, 96% could see 20/20 at arms length and 73% could see 20/25 at near without glasses or contact lenses.

What is more exciting is that 98% of these people could pass their drivers test, 100% could see their computer or put on their makeup, and 98% could read a magazine, all without glasses or contact lenses. Also, your ability to see at approximately arms length (middle vision) will be greatly enhanced with the Crystalens.

In addition, the quality of vision compared to wearing bifocals and/or trifocals is significantly improved. Youll have a full range of vision, without having to tilt your head to find that portion of your glasses that allows you to see clearly. You simply look at something and the Crystalens, mimicking the natural focusing ability of your eye, will automatically focus your eye at near, arms length, or distance.
