Lens Implants


As we reach our 40s, our eyesight becomes a bit blurry, and it becomes harder to focus on up-close objects.

  • This is known as presbyopia, and it's the result of the natural lens in each eye becoming less flexible, so that it doesn't change shape as it should to properly focus on objects up-close.
  • This changing of shape is called accommodation.

So to see clearly at short distances, we resort to reading glasses.

You've heard about LASIK, but LASIK won't get rid of those reading glasses permanently. Now there's another option, Crystalens®.

Dallas Crystalens® - Vision Without Compromise

Accommodative Intraocular Lens (IOL) implantation is a surgical procedure to correct presbyopia. It differs from other refractive surgical procedures like LASIK because it involves replacing the natural lens of the eye, rather than reshaping the cornea. The Crystalens® intraocular lens implant is creating amazing vision all over North Texas.

This revolutionary procedure is generally for adults over the age of 40 who desire high quality vision without the assistance of bifocals or trifocals; the vision results are stunning.

The recently FDA approved HD model includes improvements to the prior Crystalens accommodating interocular lens. It provides better vision than the prior models. Crystalens HD produces an overall clearer vision through better contrast sensitivity and depth of focus.

Since Crystalens® received FDA approval in November of 2003, Dr. Carter has been the world leader in the number of implants performed!

Crystalens Fort WorthAs the first U.S. surgeon to perform Crystalens® after FDA approval, Dr. Carter has performed more Crystalens® procedures than any other eye surgeon in the world. Dr. Carter offers Dallas residents peace of mind:

"Because Crystalens® works with the natural focusing ability of your eye, our patients can see both distance, intermediate and near without glasses. Many of our patients are stunned to find out that their personal best vision is even better than they had hoped for."

Consider Crystalens® to restore the quality eyesight you had when you were younger, as well as your quality of life.

Vision the way you want it. Seamless. Effortless. Natural.

ReSTORThe ReSTOR® intraocular lens is a (IOL) multifocal lens implant used to replace the eye's natural lens for clearer vision.

You can choose the ReSTOR® lens to correct presbyopia or cataracts, so that your eyes can focus easily at both close and far distances. To focus back and forth in that way, the natural lens must change its shape slightly and this is referred to as accommodation. However, after the age of 40, the natural lens becomes less flexible making it difficult for the eye to focus up-close.

Unlike the Crystalens®, the ReSTOR® lens is not dependant on movement of the lens to yield clear vision.

How the ReSTOR® lens works

The ReSTOR® lens uses a method of spreading light, called apodized diffractive technology, as well as refractive technology. Similar technology has been used for many years in telescopes and microscopes to improve image quality. Now it's available for patients of Carter Eye Center who want to see both near and far without glasses.

The optical surface has concentric rings of different focus or power. Clearer distance vision is enabled by the rings nearer the lens' edge (like the upper part of bifocal glasses). Clearer near vision is provided by the inner rings (like the reading part of bifocal glasses).

Advantages of the ReSTOR® lens


  • They're flexible, so Dr. Carter can fold them up and insert them through tiny incisions.
  • Since the incisions are so tiny, you enjoy rapid healing and minimal discomfort
  • The exact engineering and construction of the ReSTOR® lens has dramatically reduced many of the traditional problems of multifocal lenses, such as:
  • The"near" portion of the lens causing blurriness when you're looking at distant objects and the"far" portion of the lens doing the same when you're looking at close objects.

Dr. Carter has been implanting ReSTOR® lenses to help Dallas residents fight cataract and presbyopia . Call now to find out how this advanced technology may be able to make your life much easier.

Carter Eye Center is pleased to offer patients the versatile benefits of the ReZoom® multifocal lens.

ReZoom® is a multifocal intraocular lens (IOL). It's used to replace your natural lens to correct presbyopia (the hardening of the natural lens that comes with age) or cataracts.

The ReZoom® lens is designed to allow patients to see well at near, middle and far distances alike, by bending the light differently over different parts of the lens optics.

The ReZoom® lens has uniquely proportioned visual zones, each zone designed for different light and focal distances. Unlike other earlier multifocal lens designs, the ReZoom® lens has proportioned the size of its zones to provide for a good vision in a range of light conditions. For instance, some zones have been designed to offer clearer distance vision during night driving.

Unlike the Crystalens®, Rezoom® doesn't work with the muscles of the eye, and is not dependent on a mechanical process or the movement of the lens to give clear vision.

Clearer vision is achieved when your eye's natural lens is replaced with the ReZoom® lens. And if you have ReZoom® for a strictly refractive benefit, you will never have to worry about cataract development in the future.


Try ReZoom® multifocal IOL for great vision at all distances!

Since ReZoom®'s FDA-approval in March 2005, Dr. Carter has been studying the technology diligently and utilizing this revolutionary lens to create happy patients all over Dallas.

New Vision = New Freedom!

How CK Works

Ft Worth CK

In a very safe procedure using controlled radio waves, Dr. Carter can gently change the shape of your cornea to improve and clarify your vision.

  • The radio waves are applied using a very thin, specialized instrument
  • They shrink the collagen, increasing the corneal curvature
  • No incisions are made
  • No lasers are used

After just a few minutes, your vision will be so clear you can read the newspaper without your glasses.

"At Carter Eye Center, we're always at the forefront of technology. We were the first in Dallas to treat presbyopia without a laser or blade and we have more experience with CK than any other practice in the area."
-Dr. Harvey Carter
