It is a great choice for previous refractive surgery patients who do not have a large amount of astigmatism.
Both multifocal and accommodating lenses provide an added benefit to the cataract and refractive patients, offering them the potential independence from reading glasses.
The revolutionary design element that makes crystalens the state-of-the-art replacement lens are “hinges” which are designed to allow the lens to move, or accommodate to focus on objects near, far and all distances in-between seamlessly.
There’s no such thing as a “one size fits all” intraocular lens.
Together, you and your doctor will discuss which lens or combination of lenses best fits your lifestyle and your vision goals.
Monovision and Blended Vision use monofocal and toric IOLs, setting the focus of each eye at a different distance – one eye focuses for near objects and the other eye focuses for distant objects.
The brain then combines the two images to give good distance and reading vision and helps eliminate the need for readers, bifocals, or trifocals.
The lens produces a single image similar to our natural crystalline lens and requires no neuroadaptation to viewing multiple images.
The Crystalens® typically has less glare and halos associated with nighttime driving than with multifocal IOLs.
Now, Crystalens™ can restore the quality eyesight you had when you were younger, as well as your quality of life. William Wiley has performed hundreds of successful crystalens surgeries and can turn your dreams into reality!

The acrylic lens comprised a biconvex optic with a straight edge into which were inserted loops to center the lens in the eye and fixate it within the capsular bag.
Recently accommodating intraocular lenses have been introduced to the market, which generally are modified plate haptic lenses and, like the silicone plate haptic lenses, have no clear demarcation between the junction of the plate with the optic's posterior surface.
an integral central optical system supported by a solid fixed radius, flexible annular peripheral optical component forming a solid annular support, a central anterior optical component comprising a thin deformable membrane, a central liquid optical material, and a posterior central flexible optic component and annulus suspended from the solid annular support, the flexible posterior component is thicker and less resilient than the thinner anterior membrane, the annulus being thicker than the anterior component, the posterior optic component being designed to move forward and compress the central liquid optical material to thereby cause the thin anterior membrane to bulge forward increasing the refractive power of the lens upon an increase of vitreous cavity pressure with ciliary muscle contraction, the optical system being designed such that anterior movement of the posterior optical component will result in an anterior component movement and increasing its curvature and decreasing the radius of the anterior component to increase the power of the optic being circular and having a solid peripheral annular portion extending to anterior and posterior surfaces of the optic, the optic having a central anterior portion, and a central posterior portion, the central anterior portion comprising a very thin portion and the central posterior portion comprising a solid central optical portion surrounded by an annular membrane thicker than the anterior portion, the optic being designed so that the thin anterior portion can change in radius of curvature upon an increase in vitreous cavity pressure on the posterior solid optic portion, the optical system being designed such that anterior movement of the posterior optical component will result in an anterior component movement and increasing its curvature and decreasing the radius of the anterior component to increase the power of the optic.26. Intraocular lenses have for many years had a design of a single optic with loops attached to the optic to center the lens and fixate it in the empty capsular bag of the human lens.
