An intraocular lens that lets you focus
During your cataract surgery, your doctor removes your eye’s natural lens and replaces it with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL) that restores your clear vision. At Fichte, Endl and Elmer Eyecare you can receive Crystalens – the only FDA-approved IOL that can shift position with the action of your eye muscles and enable you to focus on objects both near and far.
Standard monofocal IOL’s, which are typically used in cataract surgery do not give you the ability to focus on objects at varying distances. Thus, you would likely need reading glasses or bifocals. Crystalens premium IOLs can eliminate the need for additional corrective lenses, improving your vision while simplifying your life! Click here for more information.
