Crystalens for Cataracts – Lens Options Available in Las Vegas
Crystalens implants improve all fields of vision following cataract surgery. This type of implant is growing in popularity among ophthalmologists and their patients.
Crystalens is an advanced accommodating eye lens implant that improves all fields of vision, from nearsightedness to farsightedness. Using Crystalens, an ophthalmologist can help patients reacquire the eye’s natural focus by replacing the crystalline lens of the eye. This implant is a single-focus IOL, or intraocular lens, that moves with the eye muscles to correct all fields of vision and accommodate between focusing distances.
The conventional fixed focus replacement lens forced patients to pick either clear far vision or near vision. However, fluid and smooth focusing is achievable with Crystalens, which is the reason this implant is gaining popularity among ophthalmologists and their patients.
Crystalens is a viable option for vision correction and cataract procedures. An eye doctor at our Las Vegas clinic will customize the Crystalens to fit the type of refractive correction you need. Before starting the Crystalens implant procedure, the ophthalmologist uses eye drops to numb the eyes. Then, he will make a slight incision into the cornea’s outer layer. Once the outer layer is opened, the cataracts are carefully fragmented and removed though the use of ultrasound technology. Finally, the specially made Crystalens is delicately placed, and the incision is allowed to heal. With a little bit of instruction from the eye doctor, you will have the ability to effortlessly focus between all vision distances without using contacts or eye glasses.
If you have cataracts and want to improve your vision, you could be an excellent candidate for a Crystalens implant. Contact our Las Vegas clinic to set up a consultation with one of our board-certified ophthalmologists to discuss Crystalens and find out if it’s the right procedure for you.
