Crystalens accommodating lens reviews

Scroll down for full details, but since the 2011 surgery, I continue to see well and am glad with the choices I made and the results.While I've been fortunate to have had good health, my eyes have always been a bit of a problem.

However, such improvements were small and reduced with time.

Background Accommodation is the ability of the eye to focus on both distant and near objects.

Accommodation is achieved through the contraction of ciliary muscles, which results in an increase in curvature and a forward shift of the natural lens in the eye.

Accommodative IOLs have been designed to overcome loss of accommodation after To define (a) the extent to which accommodative IOLs improve unaided near visual function, in comparison with monofocal IOLs; (b) the extent of compromise to unaided distance visual acuity; c) whether a higher rate of additional complications is associated the use of accommodative IOLs.

) ( Clinical ( and the WHO International Clinical Trials Registry Platform (ICTRP) (int/ictrp/search/en).

Better DCNVA was seen in the accommodative lens group at 12 to 18 months in the three trials that reported this time point but considerable 0.05 to 0.19; 40 people, binocular) log MAR improvement (low quality evidence).

The relative effect of the lenses on corrected distant visual acuity (CDVA) was less certain.

In 2010 (age 46), I noticed that my right eye had more difficulty seeing things.

I had been told it had a "small" cataract, but these can often exist for years with no impairment of vision.

In contrast, my wife Wendy at -3 diopters had Lasik done in 2002 by Dr. Keller of Boulder Eye Surgeons (ironically our neighbor across the street) and she had excellent results.

Around age 40, it slowly started becoming more difficult to focus (when wearing correction) at close distances, especially in low light.

Additional trials, with longer follow-up, comparing different accommodative IOLs, multifocal IOLs and monofocal IOLs, would help map out their relative presbyopia occurs and remains a challenge.
