Accommodating lenses for cataracts
Should this occur, the lenses will still help you see better at distance but will not help with near vision.
There are certain requirements you must meet to have RLE or refractive cataract surgery with Crystalens accommodating lenses. Typically patients who want this lens are over 45 and are experiencing presbyopia.
You might find it surprising that after undergoing vision correction surgery, you still require eyeglasses for near vision reading.
Well, what if there was a way to have cataract surgery and restore vision at all distances? As the name implies, a multifocal IOL offers more than one lens power.
Also, if the ciliary muscles and zonules that attach to the lens capsule are in particularly poor condition, the procedure may be ineffective.
If you answered yes to either of these questions, accommodating intraocular lens implants (IOLs) may be the solution you’ve been looking for.
