Bausch & Lomb Crystalens®


As we age our eyes begin to lose their ability to focus on objects that are close like reading and sewing looking at our golf scores. This is caused by a developed of the eye condition known as Presbyopia. By the time most adults reach their mid-forties, they require some sort of glasses to read menus, newspapers, mail and so much more. Later in life, people can begin to develop a more serious condition, cataracts. Dr. Stephenson offers a new technology that can help those who suffer from both presbyopia and cataracts: Crystalens®.

Crystalens® is an accommodating intraocular lens that, unlike a standard IOL can treat both a person’s cataracts and presbyopia. Crystalens® not only treats your cataracts, but can also help you eliminate your need for glasses or contact lenses. It does so by recreating accommodation similar to your eye’s natural lens. The unique Crystalens® design was modeled after the human eye. Like the natural lens, it uses the internal eye muscles to flex and accommodate in order to focus on objects in the environment at all distances. Crystalens® has the ability to adjust rapidly to your visual needs. including daily tasks such as cooking, reading, computer, and driving seeing the dash board, hiking, swimming, or watching television.

Trulign Toric -The Trulign® Toric

Trulign ToricToric IOL's are designed to help correct astigmatism in patients who also have a cataract. Often, astigmatisms can lead to blurred or impaired vision if it becomes moderate or severe. The blurred vision is caused as a result of the eye’s cornea having an irregular shape. A normal eye’s cornea and lens have a circular shape, but an eye with astigmatism has a longer, more oval shape Most astigmatisms are not severe enough to require surgery and can be corrected by wearing glasses or contact lenses. But, for cataract patients with a pre-existing astigmatism, a Toric IOL could be the solution to help you eliminate the need for glasses after surgery, because a Toric IOL has the ability to correct both their cataract and their astigmatism.

Trulign Toric -The Trulign® Toric is a bold new toric IOL design which uses the accommodative lens implant platform(Crystalens) to provide excellent distance and intermediate vision with some near vision while simultaneous correcting astigmatism. Recently FDA approved, this newest technology offers a broader range of glasses-free vision for our astigmatism patients with activities from computer work to driving.
