Advantages of CrystalensCrystalens® is the first and only FDA-approved lens implant that is capable of accommodation – in other words, it functions in the same way as your eye’s natural lens, using your own eye muscles to naturally adjust in response to your brain signals. The flexible Crystalens® allows your eye to seamlessly and continuously focus at all distances.

Advantages of Crystalens®

The natural accommodating power of Crystalens® comes with several advantages for patients, including:

  • A broader range of vision – Because Crystalens® can move and change shape like a natural lens, your eye is capable of clearer vision across a wider range of distances. Crystalens® is especially helpful with far and intermediate vision.
  • Excellent clarity of vision – Crystalens® directs all light that passes into your eye to a single point of focus, comparable to a healthy natural lens.
  • No adjustment required – Since Crystalens® produces a single clear image that is consistent with normal vision, your brain does not need to neuro adapt to viewing multiple images (as with multifocal IOLs).

After Crystalens® placement, you will recover functional vision within hours and can return to your normal routine the next day.

Candidates for Crystalens®

Crystalens candidatesCrystalens® is ideal for people who have presbyopia and/or cataracts and want to restore their vision at all distances. If you read or use a computer for several hours a day, you will especially benefit from the excellent intermediate vision that Crystalens® provides.

Additionally, people with high degrees of myopia (nearsightedness) or hyperopia (farsightedness) who are not eligible for laser vision correction may be good candidates for Refractive Lens Exchange with Crystalens®.

Keep in mind that some Crystalens® patients may still need over-the-counter reading glasses (between +1.00 and +1.50 diopters) in order to easily read fine print up-close. Eye exercises after surgery can improve near vision performance in many patients.

To find out if you are a good candidate for Crystalens®, please contact Brooks Eye Associates today or call (972) 736-9347 to schedule an appointment. We serve patients in North Texas, including Plano, Frisco, and Dallas.
