Clear Advantage Now Offering Crystalens HD™ Intraocular Lens
Newest Version of the Only FDA Approved Accommodating Lens Designed to Further Improve Near Vision
Clear Advantage Vision Correction Center and sister company Eyesight Ophthalmic Services are now offering a new version of the Crystalens — named Crystalens HD™ — to its patients. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) gave approval for the Crystalens HD on June 26, 2008.
The Crystalens HD is the fourth generation of the only FDA approved accommodating lens and offers improvement in near vision for many patients. The first generation Crystalens accommodating intraocular lens (IOL) was approved by the FDA in November 2003.
"Our patients have clearly indicated a preference for a high definition experience in vision correction. As a surgeon, I know well that a truly accommodating IOL helps achieve that goal. The Crystalens HD will help many of our patients experience truly good near vision without compromising on the quality of vision at intermediate or long distance," said Dr. Tim Peters, eye surgeon and Medical Director at Clear Advantage.
The choices in vision correction have grown significantly over the past twenty years. The development of the Crystalens HD, in particular, will give many baby boomers and seniors an opportunity to see clearly at all distances while reducing or eliminating the need for glasses. The Crystalens is the only intraocular lens that uses the natural focusing ability of the eye by using the eye muscle to flex and accommodate in order to focus on objects that are near, far or in between.
"If I were a patient having cataract surgery, I would want an IOL that projects a single point of focus and also provides a broad range of distant, intermediate and near vision. The Crystalens HD is the best available lens to achieve that goal," said Dr. Peters.
Clear Advantage offers a number of vision correction options for its patient. It is important that each patient is fully informed about what to expect before, during and after a surgical procedure.
