TRULIGN™ allows for the same and includes toric treatment for astigmatism.

When talking about their vision, most people over the age of 45 "focus" on the loss of near vision generally associated with presbyopia or "aging eyes." What they may not realize is that, in addition to developing cataracts, the inevitable progression of presbyopia weakens the ability of the lens to focus in the field of vision that begins at our fingertips - known as intermediate vision.

Crystalens is an accommodating intraocular lens that, unlike a standard IOL, can treat both a person’s cataracts and presbyopia�loss of near and intermediate vision.

You probably noticed in your forties that you started to lose some of your up-close vision and had to start wearing reading glasses.

TRULIGN™ and Crystalens® are accomodative lens implants.

The unique Crystalens® design allows you to enjoy a wider, more natural range of vision for most activities, including: reading a book, working on the computer, or driving a car.

Crystalens can restore full functional vision and, in most cases, eliminate the need for glasses and contact lenses.

The doctors at our ophthalmology practice in San Antonio have treated cataracts for many years.Our experience and use of state-of-the-art-technology makes us a clear choice for cataract surgery. Ask about our many options for financing your procedure.Cataract surgery is the most commonly performed procedure in the United States.Designed to give patients back their youthful vision, the TECNIS Multifocal Lens provides patients with high-quality vision at any distance, and in any light condition ½even in low light.(1) Superior Results The advanced TECNIS ½ Multifocal is an implantable lens that restores vision after cataract surgery and corrects presbyopia (the need for reading glasses).It delivers results superior to those of a standard multifocal lens and offers an excellent chance to become spectacle independent.Crystalens not only treats your cataracts (a clouding or hardening of your lens), but can also reduce or eliminate your dependence on glasses.It does so by recreating accommodation similar to your eye’s natural lens.Standard IOLs are "fixed" within the eye and correct vision at a single focus (usually distance).Multifocal lenses, first introduced in 1998, add near vision to the picture but also neglect the intermediate field of vision.And, until now, this field of vision that has become the most important for today's active Boomers was severely compromised.As it turns out, we live most of our "visual lives" in the intermediate range of distance between 26 and 32 inches.
