Currently, Crystalens and Trulign Toric IOLs are the only FDA-approved presbyopia-correcting IOLs for cataract surgery that improve near vision by a focusing process called accommodation.This is why they are classified as "accommodating IOLs."Both lenses are manufactured and distributed by Bausch Lomb.Published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company. These examples are from the Cambridge English Corpus and from sources on the web.The ciliary muscle, ciliary zonules and lens capsule keep the lens suspended in its proper position inside the eye for clear vision.In a normal eye (without presbyopia or cataracts), this dynamic process of accommodation adjusts the focusing power of the eye by changing the thickness of the eye's natural lens.The Crossword Solver found 200 answers to the ACCOMMODATING crossword clue.The Crossword Solver finds answers to American-style crosswords, British-style crosswords, general knowledge crosswords and cryptic crossword puzzles.

When the ciliary muscle contracts, the lens thickens, becoming more curved for added magnification for clear near vision.In a young eye, accommodation is essentially instantaneous and effortless.As the eye ages, the lens becomes less flexible, causing the loss of near vision that is the hallmark sign of presbyopia in people over age 40.Another type of presbyopia-correcting IOL that is an alternative to accommodative IOLs is the multifocal IOL category.Like multifocal contact lenses, these premium IOLs have more than one power, with added magnification in certain zones of the lens for improved near vision.
