accommodating IOLs give you clear vision without glasses at a greater range of distances — near, far and mid-range — compared to a standard IOL. These lenses have a hinge that flexes with your eye muscles to change the lens focus.
Accommodating lens implants have garnered a significant amount of positive review and testimonials from thousands of early patient adopters. These special lenses are designed to mimic or accommodate, just like the eyes natural lens would. The hinge design of the lens enables it to move inside the eye just like the original natural lens. The end result is that patients can see better at multiple distances. . The unique Crystalens can reduce or eliminate glasses for most activities, including: reading a book, working on the computer, and driving a car.
The only accommodating IOL available is known as the Crystalens ® Bausch & Lomb.
The Crystalens offers very good night vision. It is designed differently from a multifocal IOL, so it does not produce halos.
