der range by the end of the year. "Quarter diopter steps for the Crystalens
5-0 have been enthusiastically accepted by surgeons, so we have now added them to the HD model. We still remain the only presbyopic channel lenses available in the U.S. in quarter diopter steps," said Mike Judy, vice president of Global Surgical Marketing.
The company will begin shipping the Crystalens HD in the additional diopter steps on July 16, 2009.
"The approval of Crystalens HD in quarter diopters is Bausch & Lomb's contribution to the best possible outcomes for our surgeons and patients," said Andy Corley, president of Bausch & Lomb Surgical. "We are very proud of the difference that Crystalens is making in the lifestyles of cataract patients."
The availability of quarter diopters is another unique distinction that Crystalens enjoys. Other Crystalens advantages include:
- Crystalens is the only FDA-approved accommodating lens in the U.S.;
- Unlike standard IOLs, Crystalens can treat both cataracts and presbyopia;
- Crystalens is designed to flex like the eye's natural lens, so patients can see near, far and everywhere in between;
- No other replacement lens comes closer to mirroring the natural focusing ability of the eye;
- It can even reduce or eliminate the need for glasses during most activities.
