This article summarizes the new Synchrony Accommodative Intraocular Implant. It is a double lens that is implanted in the capsular bag. Ciliary body contraction with accompanying zonular tension changes causes changes in the distance between the two lenses, enabling accommodation. 3 Year results on 19 patients show a best corrected visual acuity at distance to be 20/28 and 20/23 at near. These results are comparable to the ReStor IOL. Accommodation seems to improve from year 1 to year 2 post-operatively.
