The crystalens Procedure

The recovery period is usually short. Most patients are able to pursue normal activities almost immediately after surgery. Patients usually have a follow-up visit scheduled with the surgeon to evaluate the patient’s recovery. Discuss with your doctor beforehand what to expect before, during, and after the procedure in terms of eye drops and office visits.  

If you are like most patients who have the crystalens®, you can expect to see everything more clearly. Your focus will be sharper than it has been in years, and you can expect to see improvements over time.
