Crystalens and Trulign Toric are premium intraocular lenses (IOLs) that correct presbyopia as well as common refractive errors, enabling an expanded range of clear vision and a decreased need for eyeglasses after cataract surgery, compared with surgery performed with conventional monofocal IOLs.
Currently, Crystalens and Trulign Toric IOLs are the only FDA-approved presbyopia-correcting IOLs for cataract surgery that improve near vision by a focusing process called accommodation.
Though Crystalens and Trulign Toric accommodating IOLs provide an expanded range of clear vision compared with conventional monofocal intraocular lenses, you may still need reading glasses to comfortably see small print and perform other near vision tasks.
That said, most people who choose one of these accommodating IOLs are very pleased with the greater freedom from eyeglasses they have after cataract surgery.
When the ciliary muscle is relaxed, the lens flattens to enable clear distance vision.
When the ciliary muscle contracts, the lens thickens, becoming more curved for added magnification for clear near vision.
We also have special rates for the hotels and apartments listed here.

In an accommodating IOL, the haptics are designed to keep the IOL securely in place and prevent any rotational movement, but the legs are flexible in a way that allows the optical portion of the IOL to move slightly forward upon contraction of the ciliary muscle.
In this fashion, an accommodating IOL can expand the range of clear vision after cataract surgery, providing better near vision without eyeglasses than what is possible with a conventional monofocal IOL procedure.
Also, the added cost of these presbyopia-correcting IOLs typically is not covered by Medicare or private health insurance.
