Crystalens accomodating lens
provides approximately one diopter of monocular accommodation which allows for near, intermediate, and distance vision without spectacles.
Careful preoperative evaluation and sound clinical judgement should be used by the surgeon to decide the risk / benefit ratio before implanting a lens in a patient.
There are certain requirements you must meet to have RLE or refractive cataract surgery with Crystalens accommodating lenses. Typically patients who want this lens are over 45 and are experiencing presbyopia.
Unlike most other IOLs, the AO IOL optic has hinges connecting it to the haptic; please see adverse events section below for more information.
Do not resterilize this intraocular lens by any method.
Physicians should consider the characteristics of each individual vaulting case prior to determining the appropriate treatment.
Data on long-term follow-up after treatment of vaulting is not available.
If you answered yes to either of these questions, accommodating intraocular lens implants (IOLs) may be the solution you’ve been looking for.
