FDA approves first accommodative IOL

January 1, 2004

Cataract surgeons who participated in the premarketing clinical trials for the model AT-45 accommodative IOL (Crystalens, eyeonics inc. [formerly C&C Vision]) are heralding that technology as an important advance. The lens affords patients clear uncorrected vision at near, intermediate, and distance. FDA approval for marketing of the lens was granted in November.
