Crystalens is the first and only accommodating intraocular lens that allows patients to focus automatically and seamlessly at all distances. This technology is designed to mimic the eye's natural ability to focus on distant, middle, and near objects. Used in conjunction with standard cataract extraction methods, the Crystalens can restore a full range of functional vision, from distance to reading vision, without total dependence on glasses or contact lenses. However, cataracts do not have to be present to make this procedure possible for you. The Williamson Nelson Eye Center is the first in Baton Rouge to perform this medical breakthrough procedure aimed at restoring vision.
