Standard Monofocal IOL:
This IOL provides patients with a good amount of distance as well as intermediate vision. However, it cannot help patients with near vision issues. This approach usually requires that patients be fitted with corrective lenses or eyeglasses following the surgery to help them with reading and near-vision tasks.
This method is designed to provide both distance and near vision at the same time, but it is unable to restore proper intermediate vision. Those who go this route may find they experience Increased glare and halos at night.
Crystalens™ is the first accommodating lens available in the U.S. and it is specially designed to help patients achieve good distance, intermediate, and near vision. This IOL allows patients to see their best by giving them a full range of vision, reducing the need for contact lenses or glasses.
