The Crystalens® vision workbooks are a series of six different books (each can be downloaded and printed using the links below) used for post-Crystalens vision therapy. Each book has sixteen different word search puzzles designed to be completed over a two-week cycle, with the patient completing one exercise per day. There are six books, so it will take twelve weeks to complete the entire program.
Each book has increasingly smaller text, stimulating your eyes to accommodate. Book One has the largest font size and should be very easy for you to complete. Please complete the books in order and aim to complete one book over a two-week period. If you find one book more difficult, you may consider printing it off again and doing it for another week. These are intended to develop a controlled, daily exercise to help improve your vision after Crystalens implantation. We hope you will find these puzzles to be both fun for you and helpful for your eyes.
You can start these exercises two weeks after surgery on your second eye is completed. If the Crystalens is only going to be implanted in one eye, or if it is anticipated that the second eye will not be implanted within one month of the first eye, the program should be started once the implanted eye is two weeks post-op.
