The crystalens accommodating lens takes its design cues from a single source-nature! Working in concert with the eye’s natural muscle, crystalens “flexes” to accommodate near, intermediate and distance subjects. No lens comes closer to mirroring the function of the natural lens.
Advantages of the crystalens
The lens rests back in the eye to accommodate distance vision, then gently flexes forward to accommodate intermediate vision, and then further forward for near vision. Movement is enabled by a flexible hinge within the lens.
- Effective Near Vision – Most crystalens patients have reduced their dependence on glasses and are able to read the newspaper or a phone book without glasses.
- Effective Intermediate Vision – Most crystalens patients are able to see their computers, dashboards and anything else at arm’s length without glasses.
- Effective Distance Vision – Most crystalens patients are able to see 20/40 or better after surgery, so the clock across the room or the TV in the corner are clearly within sight.
