Presbyopic Intraocular Lenses: Cystalens®

The Crystalens® is the only FDA approved accomodating intraocular lens. This means that it has the ability to change its shape or ‘flex’ during near and intermediate visual tasks. This lens is not a multifocal intraocular lens and the incidence of glare, halos, and problems with night vision should be significantly reduced. While no guarantee can be made as to the final result, if this upgraded lens is implanted, there is a much better chance that you will be able to see at all distances: distance, intermediate, and near without glasses after surgery. If you are interested in the Crystalens® , Dr. Kim can discuss this option with you further.
