A day 1 post-op slit lamp image. The patient was 20/20 with a –0.5 correction, and the three-piece implant can be seen within the capsular bag Source (all): Steven G. Safran, M.D. # Maskin® treat the refractive component of the problem with glasses, LVC, or piggyback lens. I believe this ap- proach leads to a better visual out- come in the long run. The fact that there is no consensus from my ex- pert panel on any of the cases I pre- sented is good evidence that there is more than one way to "skin a cat." The choices I made demonstrate my personal bias in how to approach these cases but are not the only methods that could have been used. One thing is certain though: Careful analysis of the problems seen in patients referred to my practice for post-op Crystalens complications has taught me how to avoid these problems in my own patients and achieve consistently excellent outcomes with this lens. Crystalens has been my "fastball" presbyopia- correcting lens for the past 5 years, and by sharing these cases I hope to advance the art of working with this implant rather than cast a shadow over its use.
