What is the Crystalens®?

Crystalens is an FDA-approved intraocular lens for the visual correction of adults with lenses that have aged or become more rigid or cataracts (clouded lenses) with or without presbyopia.

Crystalens accommodating intraocular lens is made with hinges on each side that are designed to allow the optic, or the part of the lens that you see through, to move back and forth as you constantly change focus on images around you. Crystalens is a small lens enabling it to flex or bend as you focus your vision.

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:

  • The first and only FDA-approved accommodating intraocular lens.
  • The only lens that provides a single focal point throughout a continuous range of vision from far to near, and everything in between.
  • The only lens that uses the natural focusing ability of the eye.

Crystalens focuses only one image to the back of the eye, unlike a multifocal lens that projects multiple images that are not totally in focus, then requiring your brain to "adjust" to the differences. Few patients with Crystalens have experienced glare, halos and night vision problems. In addition, Crystalens vision is sharp and crisp because 100% of the light rays are available and distributed - when you need it.

The effectiveness of the Crystalens was proven in clinical trials:

While we expect our patients to wear glasses part time for refinement, the following shows what many patients were able to see with Crystalens:
