Fort worth accommodating lens
Generally, while both designs expand the range of clear vision compared with conventional monofocal IOLs, accommodating IOLs tend to provide sharper distance vision than multifocal lenses, and multifocal IOLs tend to provide more magnifying power for seeing fine print than accommodating IOLs.
Your cataract surgeon can help you decide if accommodating IOLs or multifocal IOLs are the right choice for your particular needs during your preoperative eye exam and consultation.
Power Vision is developing fluid-based intraocular lens implants that use the eye’s natural accommodating response to transport fluid in the implanted lens, Fort Worth, Texas-based Alcon said.
Though Crystalens and Trulign Toric accommodating IOLs provide an expanded range of clear vision compared with conventional monofocal intraocular lenses, you may still need reading glasses to comfortably see small print and perform other near vision tasks.“We’re thrilled to officially join Alcon and its pioneering history of launching new innovation in the field of ophthalmology.We look forward to bringing this innovative IOL technology to eye care providers and customers in the years ahead,” Power Vision prez & CEO Barry Cheskin said in a prepared statement.All IOLs have a central optical zone, with peripheral "legs" (called haptics) that secure the lens implant inside the lens capsule.The primary difference between a conventional monofocal IOL and an accommodating IOL is the design of these haptics.
