Crystalens AO Lens is an artificial lens implant that can treat both a person's cataracts and presbyopia —the clouding or hardening of your lenses, and the loss of near and intermediate vision, respectively. Crystalens was modeled after the human eye. Like the natural lens, it is a lens implant that uses the eye muscle to flex and accommodate in order to focus on objects in the environment at all distances. Crystalens dynamically adjusts to your visual needs. Many patients hardly, if ever, need glasses after surgery.
Crystalens AO is implanted during one of the most commonly performed surgeries in the world. Over 8,000 standard outpatient cataract surgeries are performed in the US daily. This safe and painless procedure also usually has a quick turnaround, as most patients can return to their daily activities almost immediately after surgery.
Key Features & Benefits
- The first and only FDA-approved accommodating intraocular lens - meaning that it uses the natural focusing ability of the eye
- Crystalens AO was inspired by the eye’s natural crystalline lens.
- Unlike other lenses, Crystalens AO directs all available light received by the eye to a single focal point, so that you can focus on objects at all distances.
