What makes the Crystalens different from other intraocular lenses?

The Crystalens has the unique ability to focus on objects at varying distances using the eye’s natural focusing system. This means that the Crystalens can provide a continuous range of vision, without corrective lenses, from near to far and everything in between. Standard (single vision) lens implants do not have the ability to provide a full range of vision.  Most people who have single vision lens implants MUST wear glasses for middle and near vision.  It was shown in the two year clinical trial that supported the FDA approval of the Crystalens that significantly more patients implanted with a Crystalens (88%) could see better at all distances than patients implanted with a standard lens (36%).
