Crystalens Accommodative Lenses
What is Crystalens?
Drs. Drs. Kennedy, Kennedy, and Thompson or provides patients with the Crystalens™ procedure. Crystalens is an accommodating intraocular lens used to treat both cataracts and presbyopia, the progressive inability to focus on near objects, commonly developed with age. Crystalens works by recreating accommodation similar to your eye’s natural lens. It uses the eye muscle to flex in order to focus on objects at all distances. This design allows the optic to move back and forth as you constantly change focus on images around you.
The Crystalens Procedure
The Crystalens procedure is an outpatient surgery, typically takes about 15-20 minutes, and is painless. Drs. Drs. Kennedy, Kennedy, and Thompson or will begin by numbing the eye with drops and sealing the cornea. The natural lens is then gently removed, and the Crystalens implanted. Normal activity can be resumed almost immediately after surgery, with a total recover time of only 2-3 days.
