Your vision usually remains stable until you reach your mid-to-late 40s. Currently, the all-natural crystalline lenses of your eyes will certainly start to harden and become inflexible. AO represents Aspheric Optics.

How Crystalens Addresses Cataracts – Beverly Hills Cataract Surgery

Crystalens lens is an artificial lens implant that has two purposes, it can treat both an individual’s cataracts and also presbyopia which are the clouding or hardening of the lenses, as well as the loss of near and also intermediate vision, specifically.

Crystalens AO implant is among one of the most typically performed surgical treatments in the world. Over 3 million cataract surgeries are performed in the United States every year. Like the natural lens, it is a lens implant that utilizes the eye muscle to flex and accommodate in order to focus on objects in the environment at whatsoever distances.
Crystalens dynamically adapts to your visual requirements. Lots of patients will certainly have greater freedom from glasses after surgical treatment, however one may still need reading glasses for small print or various other near vision tasks.

Crystalens AO offers exceptional stability and efficiency. For example, outstanding distance, intermediate, as well as near visual outcomes were maintained up to approximately 7 years in a sub-study of patients. Furthermore, in developing Crystalens AO, the natural crystalline lens was used as an actual road map instead of an artificial model. Pseudophakic accommodation and evidence of forward movement as the primary mechanism of action of Crystalens have actually been shown in multiple research studies using objective and also subjective approaches.


Key Features & Benefits

• The very first FDA-approved accommodating intraocular lens – accommodating meaning that it utilizes the natural focusing ability of the eye.
• Crystalens AO was inspired by the eye’s natural crystalline lens: Unlike
conventional multifocal lenses, Crystalens AO directs all available light received by the eye to a single focal point to ensure that you can focus on objects at whatsoever distances, near, intermediate or far.
• Provides exceptional vision at high quality throughout any range.
• Excellent distance, intermediate, and also near visual results sustained as much as 7 years in a sub-study of patients.
• Exceptional Vision Quality.
The Crystalens AO combines innovative accommodating lens technology as well as its tested aspheric lens design. The accommodating aspheric IOL is designed provide premium vision in all distances with no compromise in intermediate vision. Furthermore, due to the fact that the Crystalens AO is totally aberration free, patients can enjoy best-potential high quality visuals with enhanced contrast level of sensitivity.

The Advantages of an Aspheric Design.

The Crystalens AO is designed to be without spherical aberration for much better visual quality relative to standard spherical IOLs. Even more predictable and also repeatable refractive results with a more comprehensive patient population can be expected.
• Uniform Centre-to-Edge Power Optical efficiency is unaffected by pupil size or location of the optic due to uniform Centre-to-edge power.
• Excellent Comparison Level of Sensitivity.
Patients ought to experience their best-potential postoperative visual high quality with improved contrast level of sensitivity; especially essential in low light or night time problems.
• Uncompromised Intermediate Vision.
The Crystalens AO is optimized for lifestyle vision, so objects at intermediate distances are as clear as objects that are near or far.
• Outstanding Vision Quality.
The Crystalens AO accommodating, mono-focal lens delivers 100% of available light rays in all distances, which indicates patients can see near, intermediate as well as distant objects with equal clarity. The Crystalens AO IOL, like the natural crystalline lens, creates accommodation from distance to near vision by moving along the visual axis. Both the natural lens and also the Crystalens AO arch, or change their radius of curvature, to increase their accommodation. They both move anteriorly as well as flex or arch to increase their concentrating power in intermediate as well as near ranges.

Fortunately, modern advancements in ophthalmology have actually made
Refractive Lens Exchange an effective treatment method for cataracts.
Throughout this procedure, your cloudy natural lens is removed and also replaced with a brand-new artificial lens. Crystalens HD is an advanced choice for artificial lens replacement.

Are You a Candidate for Crystalens HD or AO?
If you experience any of the following signs and symptoms, you may be a
candidate for Refractive Lens Exchange with Crystalens HD:
• Gradual deterioration of vision with time.
• Objects appearing dull, hazy, blurred or distorted.
• Reduced night vision.
• Glares may appear in bright light or sunshine.
• Halos around lights, particularly at night.
• White, blue, and also purple objects may appear gray
• Loss of the ability to focus on near objects.
Crystalens is the very first intraocular lens (IOL) designed for cataracts, while also providing a full range of vision that very closely mimics the action of your eye’s natural lens. Standard (single vision) lens implants do not have the ability to offer a complete range of vision. The majority of people who have single vision lens implants must remain to wear glasses for middle as well as near vision. Crystalens provides you the ability to focus on objects at varying distances by using your eye’s natural muscles to change focus of the eye for near, intermediate and far
vision.


Cataracts usually develop in both eyes. If only one eye has a cataract, you will just need one lens implant. An hour prior to your procedure, you arrive at one of our offices in California, where we apply topical drops in your eye, which anesthetizes your eye and also dilates your pupil. You may also likewise be administered oral sedatives.


The actual eye surgical treatment takes much less than a half hour. Dr. Khanna will certainly stabilize your eye with a device designed to maintain your eyelids open. Your eye surgeon will certainly after that remove your natural lens through phacoemulsification (dissolved through sound waves), and also insert your Crystalens.


There is no risk of cataracts redeveloping in your eyes once your cataracts are removed and your Crystalens has actually been placed. Crystalens HD is a single procedure with lifetime results.
