A third lens, the accommodating lens, provides a multifocal effect allowing for both near and distance focus.

By moving forward in the back of the eye on small hinges, the lens can change its power in the eye, similar to the process of accommodation of the eye’s natural lens.

Most patients choosing a monofocal lens choose to have good distance focus, and use reading glasses to help with near vision tasks.In contrast, the Crytstalens incorporates both distance and near capability into a single lens by its ability to change from distance to near power while inside the eye.The Crystalens accomplishes this by use of two small hinges, which allow the lens to move forward and backward slightly inside the eye.By doing so, the lens can change its power in the eye, similar to the process of accommodation of the eye’s natural lens.Hence, the Crystalens is called an accommodating lens, and can provide both near and distance focus.

The main advantage offered by Crystalens over a traditional, monofocal lens implant is the opportunity to become less dependent on reading glasses for near activities.
