So many choices now, so many more difficult decisions.
The Crystalens IOL, unlike its counterparts, actually works like the eye’s natural lens.
There is no fixed focal point where the eye focuses best.
The lens actually mimics the adjustments that the eye muscles make when they shift from focusing on something near, like reading material, to something far, like the horizon.
After weeks or months, an individual’s brain eventually adjusts to the lens so that the transition from near to intermediate to far is seamless.
I’m having a cataract removed from my left eye in one month. Cataract surgery is the most frequently performed surgery in the United States.
The Crystalens IOL is now in its fifth generation, the Crystalens AO.
When I had my surgery, I had the previous generation (the Crystalens HD) implanted in my eye.
