What is a Crystalens?
The Crystalens was the first FDA approved accommodating lens implant and works differently than multifocal High Tech IOLs. The term ‘accommodating’ refers to the natural way a young eye is able to focus from near to far by actually changing the shape of the lens in the eye. The Crystalens uses that same principle. It uses your own eye muscles to flex, moving the lens to adjust the focus of objects at all distances. This IOL produces a single image so patients do not need to neuroadapt to viewing multiple images. It should be noted, though, that even though all these High Tech IOLs can improve vision immensely, we cannot completely duplicate the natural accommodation that we experienced in our youth.
