Would you like to rid yourself of reading glasses and improve your distance vision at the same time?
Each is designed to give you clear distance vision, but can also give you clear intermediate and near vision.
The Crystalens Accommodating IOL is an innovative implantable lens that can kill two birds with one stone, correcting your nearsightedness, farsightedness or cataracts while also treating presbyopia to reduce your dependence on reading glasses. When your eye’s ciliary muscle contracts, the lens moves forward, increasing its magnifying power so that you can see up close (reading vision).
When the muscle relaxes, the lens returns to its original position so that you see things in the distance clearly.
If you are having refractive cataract surgery with Crystalens IOLs, you will likely have to pay the difference between the charge for traditional monofocal IOLs and the cost of your Crystalens lenses.
Pricing varies, but it may cost you up to ,500 per eye out of pocket, or perhaps more.
The majority of patients adapt well to this over time, but some patients will also notice decreased contrast sensitivity, which will manifest as a decrease in the sharpness of vision.
