Crystalens - IOL Implants

The Crystalens® accommodating intraocular lens is an intraocular lens used after cataract surgery or as a lens alternative in presbyopic lens exchanges. This intraocular lens was engineered with a hinge design to allow the optic, or the part of the lens that you see through, to move back and forth as your focus on an image changes. The Crystalens® accommodative intraocular lens is permanently implanted during surgery and functions in a similar fashion as the natural lens of the eye. Once the surgery has been completed your eyes can focus on far or near objects in a comfortable way with no discomfort. If you are experiencing presbyopia or cataracts please feel free to consult us about the possibility of utilizing the new Crystalens® accommodative intraocular lens to rejuvenate your eyes.

Understanding Cataracts

Cataracts in Long Beach, Cataracts in Lakewood

A cataract is a gradual clouding of the eye’s natural crystalline lens. The lens assists with focusing light rays onto the retina, which communicates images to the brain. After the cataract starts to cloud the lens, it is impossible to return the lens to its clear state with medications and may require cataract surgery. Various factors may cause cataracts including cigarette smoking and diabetes. Other factors such as obesity, prolonged exposure to sunlight, alcohol and smoking have been listed by the National Eye Institute as having the potential to increase cataract formation.

Most cataract patients with early cataracts are unaware that they have them; the common complaints are dullness of colors, glare, and problems with night driving. Cataracts will gradually limit a person’s ability to perform simple and basic tasks such as reading, driving, seeing road signs and even exercising. About 50% of people over the age of 60 and sometimes younger suffer from cataracts. In fact, cataracts are so common it is said that everyone will develop a cataract if they live long enough.

The Ora System

The ORA System™ utilizes intraoperative wavefront aberrometer, similar to the technology that has made LASIK a customized, precise procedure. A low-intensity beam of laser light is directed into the eye. The laser light reflects off the patient’s retina and sensors in the aberrometer measure optical characteristics in the reflected light.

What does that mean for the Surgeon and You?

It gives the surgeon an accurate, real-time measurement of the eye’s focusing capabilities at any time during surgery. That helps your surgeon choose the best intraocular lens power and astigmatism correction. Giving the patient the best possible results. It truly is revolutionary and the difference is clear.
