How Crystalens Benefits You!
Do you suffer from cloudy vision, sensitivity to glare, or see halos of light at night? If so, you may be experiencing symptoms of cataracts. Cataracts develop from a slow buildup of protein on the eye’s lens and commonly occur in people 55 years of age and older. It is a painless process and can develop slowly. In fact, many people are not even aware they have cataracts until their vision noticeably changes. The good news is that they’re easy to treat and cataract surgery is one of the safest and most commonly performed outpatient procedures. The newest technology for cataract treatment is Crystalens, which can give you the best range of vision, clarity, and color perception available.
Cataract surgery involves dissolving the eye’s clouded natural lens through a process called phacoemulsification—a quick 10-minute procedure that involves a tiny, 2.5 millimeter incision that does not require sutures to heal. The natural lens is then replaced by an intraocular lens (IOL).There are different types of IOLs. Monofocal IOLs provide distance vision, but require the use of reading glasses for close vision. Multifocal IOLs work for near, middle, or far distance vision because their design reflects light at different angles, making it possible for your eyes to focus on objects at different distances. The problem with multifocal IOLs is they can cause halos of light for night vision and other visual distortions that affect daytime vision. Crystalens is what is called an “accomodating” IOL that works with the natural movements of the eye’s focusing muscles. You would be able to see near and far distances clearly with the ability to adjust smoothly and clearly for any distances in between. With Crystalens, not only can you achieve the most accurate range of vision, you will never have to worry about getting cataracts again!
Cataract symptoms can impact the way you live your life and what you do. Vision is one of the most important senses, and blurred vision can affect your independence by making even the most basic tasks challenging. Leaving the house would be difficult because it can be difficult to see objects clearly, and it’s almost impossible to read signs. Going anywhere unfamiliar could be intimidating and, in some cases, dangerous. Now imagine yourself waking up, opening your eyes, and seeing everything around you clearly. The cloudy, dull-colored blur would be gone and the world around you would be as crisp, clear, and colorful as you once remembered it. The glare would also cease, and instead of wincing at the sun, you could take back your day and walk out into the brightness without pain or irritation. You could go out at night and be able to safely navigate through the streets without being blinded by large halos of light. Don’t let cataracts creep up on you. The sooner they are detected, the sooner they can be treated; causing less inconvenience to you or those you love.
