What is it? C-flex™ is a plastic lens used to restore vision and replace the natural lens of the eye after it is removed during cataract surgery. A cataract is a gradual thickening, hardening and clouding of the eye's lens, resulting in loss of vision. Cataracts are often the result of aging, but can have other causes.

How does it work? C-flex™ acts as a healthy eye lens to correctly focuses light on the retina and restore vision.

When is it used? C-flex™ is used to restore vision in adult patients who have had a cataractous lens removed.

What will it accomplish? C-flex™ restores vision by acting as a substitute for the removed natural lens

When should it not be used? C-flex™ should not be implanted in patients who:

  • Are younger than 21 years
  • Have extremely small eyes
  • Have chronic or active ocular disease excluding cataracts
  • Are pregnant or nursing
