Philadelphia Crystalens IOLs Specialist - Dr. James S. Lewis
Serving Bucks County, Phoenixville, Elkins Park Crystalens Patients
Patients Discuss their Crystalens™ Experience
In addition to performing implantation of Crystalens IOLs in Philadelphia, Dr. Lewis specializes in laser eye surgery. Regarded as a foremost Philadelphia LASIK and Epi-LASIK surgeon, he has helped numerous patients realize their vision correction goals. In addition, Dr. Lewis offers Visian ICLs in Philadelphia for patients who desire to eliminate their dependence on glasses but cannot undergo LASIK.
Some patients interested in LASIK learn they are better candidates for lens replacement with premium intraocular lens implantation (IOL). Crystalens™ offers the best balance of safety and effectiveness in patients who want to reduce their dependence on glasses for distance and reading.
Crystalens™ HD, the latest incarnation of this implant works by increasing its focus for reading and relaxing it for distance. The results have been excellent with virtually no complaints of glare, halos, starbursts, and difficult night driving.
Dr. Lewis has used multifocal lenses for over a decade and feels that accomdodative lens technology (Crystalens™), rather than diffractive (Restore™) and zonular (Rezoom™) offers the best solution today.
Crystalens™ surgery takes less than 5 minutes and excellent distance vision is achieved the next morning. Philadelphia Crystalens patients are asked to minimize their reading for about 10 days.
