We’ve successfully implanted this unique lens in Dallas/Ft. Worth area cataract patients for many years. It’s the first and only FDA-approved accommodative intraocular lens (IOL), meaning the lens moves naturally within the eye. Crystalens provides clearer vision and improved depth of focus at all distances, which can be more effective than multifocal lenses.
Crystalens is ideal for cataract patients with presbyopia, the common need for reading glasses which inevitably occurs in most people after age 40. Phillips Kirk Labor, MD, Eye Consultants of Texas founder and chief surgeon, is widely recognized as a premier Crystalens specialist, having performed thousands of Crystalens procedures over the years. In fact, he is a key opinion leader for manufacturer Bausch and Lomb who was selected to evaluate Crystalens before it became available.
Crystalens AO is a newer, more advanced version of this IOL. It is the first “aberration-free” IOL, providing even greater quality distance and intermediate vision. This one-of-a-kind lens is a perfect example of our commitment to providing only the most advanced vision correction technology to every patient.
Crystalens AO is one of several advanced premium lenses that we offer. With his leading expertise on this lens, Phillips Kirk Labor, MD can help you make the right choice. If you suspect you have cataracts, schedule a consultation or call our Grapevine office at 817-410-2030, conveniently located in Dallas/Fort Worth.
As with most premium smart lenses, the Crystalens AO lens does incur some out-of-pocket expense. In addition, please be aware that you may still need glasses for distance, intermediate and near vision, depending on your specific condition.
