In contrast, the Crytstalens incorporates both distance and near capability into a single lens by its ability to change from distance to near power while inside the eye.The Crystalens accomplishes this by use of two small hinges, which allow the lens to move forward and backward slightly inside the eye.When cataract surgery is performed, the natural lens in the eye, which has become cloudy over time, is replaced with an intraocular lens implant (IOL).There are now a variety of lens implants used in eye lens replacement surgery.Now patients can have their cataract, distance vision, astigmatism and need for bifocals treated all with one procedure.
Crystalens now comes with astigmatism correction (called Trulign) at no added charge at The Eye Clinic of Florida.
For those wanting to see in the distance, up close, and everything in the middle, nothing compares to Crystalens® in our opinion.
Crystalens® is a replacement for the cataractous human lens or a mis-powered human lens.
This ability to focus makes the Crystalens an accommodating intraocular lens.
The FDA recently approved a toric version of the Crystalens called the Trulign Crystalens that will both accommodate to give focus but also has astigmatism correction built in to give even clearer vision.
