New glasses and Crystalens Cataract Surgery in Oakland County By William Goldstein on February 27, 2012

Crystalens cataract surgery in Oakland County has made it so that less and less patients need glasses after cataract surgery. The use of modern technology enables a careful surgeon to reduce or even completely eliminate glasses after surgery.

When a patient undergoes an exam for cataract surgery, measurements are performed to calculate the lens implant power on each patient. Then a power of implant is chosen for each eye with a goal of getting rid of glasses. There are 2 types of implants, standard lens implants and advanced technology implants. Only the advanced technology implants, such as the Crystalens, can completely eliminate glasses. The standard implants can only help with the distance portion of vision. If astigmatism is involved, the toric IOL's or additional surgery may be needed.
