Crystalens® in the Rio Grande Valley
Intraocular lens implants (IOLs) such as Crystalens® provide patients of Dr. Raul Peña with a treatment for cataracts while also improving their focusing ability, many times to a level not experienced even before the development of the cataract. With intraocular lens implants, Dr. Peña’s patients are given the opportunity to restore clarity to vision impaired by cataracts, regain the ability to see at both near and far distances, and truly improve their overall quality of life.
Intraocular lens implants are used to replace the natural lens of the eye when it is clouded by a cataract or has lost its focusing ability due to presbyopia (age-related farsightedness). Traditional monofocal IOLs may be used to replace the lens, but they do not restore the ability to see at all distances, which means that patients must continue to wear glasses or contact lenses. However, multifocal and accommodating lens implants such as Crystalens® provide patients with improved vision at a range of distances.
As a replacement lens in cataract surgery, Crystalens® is an excellent option for those who want to eliminate the cloudiness of cataracts and also improve their eye’s accommodating ability.
Crystalens ® is the latest in intraocular lens implants provided at the office of Dr. Raul Peña. Crystalens® is an accommodating IOL. Accommodation refers to the ability of the eye to focus on distances from near to far and everywhere in between. With presbyopia, the eye’s natural lens becomes less flexible and loses its ability to focus at various distances.
Crystalens ® has hinges on both sides that allow the ciliary muscles to move the lens implants and focus the eye more easily. Dr.Raul Peña’s office is fully equipped with the latest technologies in order to provide the quality intraocular lens implants that his patients deserve. Dr. Peña focuses on personalized service and quality care. During your consultation, you and Dr. Peña will discuss your goals for treatment , and he will determine if you are a suitable candidate for Crystalens®.
