Premium IOLs Crystalens Crystalens AO Intraocular Lens Implants Refractive Lens Implants

Crystalens AO Lens Implant for Cataract Patients

Crystalens AO  Premium Refractive Lens Implant Bausch & Lomb has recently introduced their newest intraocular lens implant (IOL), the Crystalens® Aspheric Optic lens.  The Crystalens® AO is the newest addition to the Crystalens line of IOL's.  Crystalens is a premium refractive IOL that functions like a person's own accommodation.  The other lenses are the Crystalens HD and Crystalens Five-o.  The Crystalens family of lenses are the only FDA approved accommodating IOL's. The Crystalens AO has prolate aspheric surfaces which minimizes or eliminates spherical aberration thereby providing a better quality of image for both distance and near vision compared to spherical IOL's.  The Crystalens AO has zero spherical aberration so it also improves the depth of field.  Unlike some "multifocal" IOL's, vision is unaffected by pupil size in this new lens.
