It's estimated that 20.5 million Americans over the age of 40 have cataracts -
a clouding of the eye's natural lens that impairs one's ability to see clearly.
Unlike a standard lens, the Bausch + Lomb Crystalens treats the cataract
while simultaneously giving a fuller, more natural range of vision.

POTENTIAL RISKS: There are risks associated with cataract surgery. The complications and side effects experienced
during the clinical study were similar to those experienced with other intraocular lenses and with routine cataract surgery.
Because it is surgery it is not completely risk-free. Complications may occur as a result of the removal of your cataract whether
or not an intraocular lens is implanted. Complications of cataract surgery range from minor, usually temporary side effects, to
sight-threatening complications. Fortunately, significant sight-threatening complications are extremely rare and include, but are
not limited to infection, hemorrhage, and retinal detachment. People with existing medical conditions such as diabetes and chronic
eye infections are at a higher risk of developing complications. You may have reactions to medicines, and side effects include
redness, scratchiness of the eye, and sensitivity to light. Possible complications from cataract surgery include infection,
bleeding, inflammation, tissue damage, tissue swelling of the front or back of the eye, or an increase in eye pressure. If your
lens is not in the correct position, your vision may also be affected and the normal flow of fluid within the eye may be blocked.
Your vision may not improve or may get worse if these complications occur. You may require additional surgery to treat these side
INDICATIONS FOR USE: Crystalens® AO IOL is intended for primary implantation in the capsular bag of the eye for
the visual correction of aphakia secondary to the removal of a cataractous lens in adult patients with and without presbyopia.
Crystalens® AO IOL provides approximately one diopter of monocular accommodation which allows for near, intermediate, and distance vision
without spectacles. Warnings: Careful preoperative evaluation and sound clinical judgment should be used by the surgeon to decide the
risk/benefit ratio before implanting a lens in a patient. Some adverse events which have been associated with the implantation
of intraocular lenses are: hypopyon, intraocular infection, acute corneal decompensation, and secondary surgical intervention.
Precautions: Do not resterilize; do not store over 45°C.
