Abstract/OtherAbstract:
If presbyopia is caused by hardening of the crystalline lens, replacing it with a material with mechanical properties similar to the young crystalline lens should restore accommodative ability. Such a silicone material has been developed. Refilling the capsular bag with this material results in 3 to 5 D of accommodation in primates in response to pilocarpine.
