    How does the Crystalens work?

    Crystalens replaces the eye’s natural lens (the cataract) and is designed to recreate the eye’s natural focusing ability. As with the natural lens, Crystalens accommodates, or moves and flexes, in response to ciliary muscle contractions in the eye. These contractions adjust the Crystalens focus so the eye can maintain a clear image as you shift your attention from distance to intermediate or near objects.

    What is a screening mammogram?

    A screening mammogram is a low dose x-ray of the breast. A mammogram consists of two images of each breast. The images are used to detect changes in the breasts of women who have no signs or symptoms suspicious for breast cancer. An annual screening mammogram is recommended for all women over the age of 40.
