Dallas, Texas, April 28, 2010 - Dr. Jeffrey Whitman of Key-Whitman Eye Center in Dallas has been named a charter member of Bausch + Lomb's new Millennium Society. Dr. Whitman is one of twelve U.S. Crystalens surgeons who was honored at the recent national meeting of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery held in Boston. Crystalens is the only FDA approved accommodating intraocular lens (IOL).
"We are very pleased to honor Dr. Whitman as a charter member of the Millennium Society. He has performed over one thousand Crystalens surgeries and has been a national leader in giving his baby boomer and senior patients an opportunity to not only see, but to see better," said Amy Jacobs, global marketing director for Crystalens.
The choices in vision correction have grown significantly over the past twenty years. The development of the Crystalens gives many baby boomers and seniors an opportunity to see clearly at all distances and reduce their dependency on glasses. The Crystalens is the only intraocular lens that uses the natural focusing ability of the eye by using the eye muscle to flex and accommodate in order to focus on objects whether they are near, far or in between.
"I'm honored that Bausch + Lomb has honored me as one of the first members of the Millennium Society. I've embraced the Crystalens as a very important option for my patients because after having the Crystalens implanted they hardly, if ever, need their glasses or contacts again," said Dr. Whitman.
Key-Whitman Eye Center offers a number of vision correction options for its patient. It is important that each patient is fully informed about what to expect before, during and after a surgical procedure.
If a patient has healthy eyes, has not had previous cataract surgery and does not suffer from major health problems, then he or she is likely to be a good candidate for Crystalens.
There are three million cataract surgeries performed every year in the U.S. A cataract is a clouding of the normal clear lens in the eye. When a cataract forms, the natural lens in the eye is replaced by an intraocular lens. Research indicates that only a small fraction of people realize that not all intraocular lenses are the same. The research also indicates that a number of patients are willing to pay a little extra money in order to get the best quality vision.
