Can a Crystalens IOL be used after cataract surgery?
In this fashion, an accommodating IOL can expand the range of clear vision after cataract surgery, providing better near vision without eyeglasses than what is possible with a conventional monofocal IOL procedure. The Crystalens IOL and the Trulign Toric IOL are very similar in design and both correct presbyopia.
What’s the difference between trulign and Crystalens IOL?
The Crystalens IOL and the Trulign Toric IOL are very similar in design and both correct presbyopia. The primary difference between these two FDA-approved accommodating IOLs is that the Trulign Toric IOL can correct astigmatism as well as nearsightedness or farsightedness.
Do you need reading glasses with trulign Crystalens?
Though Crystalens and Trulign Toric accommodating IOLs provide an expanded range of clear vision compared with conventional monofocal intraocular lenses, you may still need reading glasses to comfortably see small print and perform other near vision tasks.
Do you have to wear glasses with Crystalens?
If all goes well with the Crystalens, you will have at least a diopter of accommodation and be able to go glasses-free for most day-to-day life, but need glasses for reading. Because it’s not a compromise solution, halo/glare is less of an issue and I would expect better low-light vision than multi-focals.
How is the Crystalens lens modeled after the human eye?
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.
How does the Crystalens implant work on the eye?
The crystalens® implant works in much the same way as your natural lens. With natural, healthy vision, your eye focuses on images near and far by coordinating the curvatures of its outer membrane and inner lens.
When to use Crystalens accommodating posterior chamber intraocular lens?
Crystalens accommodating posterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL) is for use in patients to improve uncorrected near, intermediate and far (distance) vision after cataract removal. IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION: Your eye doctor will advise you about the potential risks and benefits of cataract removal and IOL implantation.
