Crystalens Implants for Cataract Treatment and Presbyopia Correction at Kelly Eye Center

Crystalens is the only presbyopia-correcting lens that provides a single focal point throughout a continuous range of vision, and uses the natural focusing power of the eye.Your natural lens allows you to focus on objects at different distances by using the ciliary muscles to flex the lens back and forth. Crystalens works in the same manner; it’smade with hinges on each side that allow the optic, the part of the lens that you see through, to move back and forth as you constantly change focus on objects around you.
