Crystalens is a new state-of-the-art lens for cataract replacement that works naturally with your eyes' muscles to give you the quality of vision you enjoyed when you were younger. It works by using the eye's muscle to move the lens backwards and forwards naturally in response to the brain's desire to see at different distances and enables patients to focus through a full range of vision.  Persons best suited for this lens aged 50 years of age and older with cataracts who want to restore their near, intermediate, and distance vision.

The medical procedure to implant Crystalens is the same safe, proven cataract surgery performed in over 65 million cataract procedures in the US in the last 25 years and typically takes less than twenty minutes in an outpatient surgical facility. Because the opening into the eye is so small, it heals quickly on its own, without any need for stitches.

The United States Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) CrystaLens™ Model AT-45 Accommodating IOL - P030002approved Crystalens in 2003 as an artificial lens to correct the visual impairment of aphakia after cataract surgery.
