Crystalens is one of the new lens types that attempts to give good near and distance vision. It is different than the others in that the lens is hinged that allows for some movement with near vision.
The standard, however, is still the regular monofocal lens. It will give you the clear vision, but without the benefit of accomodation. If you don't mind wearing reading glasses, however, then that is a non-issue.
I recommend the standard monofocal lens in your case. Your surgeon is able to determine your post surgical prescription.
1. He may elect to leave you without a prescription, which means distance vision is clear without glasses and you would need reading glasses.
2. He may elect to leave you myopic or nearsighted (-2.00), which allows you to see upclose without glasses, and you would need glasses for distance such as driving.
