Implantation of Crystalens is a surgical procedure. All surgical procedures entail some risk. The risks of implantation with Crystalens are generally the same potential risks that exist for implanting all intraocular lenses. Because Crystalens has a smaller optic compared to the standard IOL, glare and other visual disturbances may occur under certain lighting conditions, including at night when the pupil widely dilates. Only your surgeon can determine if Crystalens is right for you and explain the applicable risks. Your doctor will perform a thorough examination and fully inform you of any increased risk of complications. Because Crystalens only absorbs a portion of ultraviolet light, you should wear sunglasses with UV400 protection when out in daylight.
INDICATIONS FOR USE
The Crystalens 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. The Crystalens® provides approximately one diopter of monocular accommodation which allows for near, intermediate, and distance vision without spectacles.
