Crystalens accommodating intraocular lens
The Cystalens 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 can see through, to move back and forth as you constantly change focus on images around you.
The Crystalens is a small lens enabling it to flex or bend as you focus your vision.
Crystalens is an accommodating IOL designed to correct presbyopia as well as nearsightedness and farsightedness.
This premium intraocular lens can be inserted in the eye as part of refractive cataract surgery for people who already have cataracts, or it can be used in refractive lens exchange (RLE) for people who don't yet have cataracts and wish to have lens-based vision correction surgery with little or no need for reading glasses after surgery.
This is true whether the Crystalens is used for refractive cataract surgery or RLE.
