At Last! An Opportunity for Visual Freedom
The AcrySof® ReSTOR® IOL is a revolutionary lens technology, which is designed to allow post operative cataract patients to see clearly at all distances with decreased dependance on bifocals or reading glasses.
The AcrySof® ReSTOR® IOL is a breakthrough intraocular lens (IOL) that can provide patients a full range of vision -- near through distance -- and greatly reduce their reliance on reading glasses or bifocals. The AcrySof® ReSTOR® IOL is an artificial lens used in cataract surgery for patients with and without presbyopia.
|Presbyopia makes it difficult
to focus on close objects
Presbyopia occurs when the natural lens inside the eye looses its ability to change shape and eventually affects everyone, including whose who are nearsighted, farsighted or had perfect vision most of their life.
Until recently, most patients had their vision improved with a monofocal IOL. Although the quality of their distant vision was excellent, most patients needed reading glasses to see near objects.
AcrySof® ReSTOR® IOL provides a full range of vision, decreasing dependence on reading glasses or bifocals.
Why we offer our patients the Acrysof® ReSTOR® IOL
- This unique IOL results in highly-predictable visual results, meaning patients can read prescription bottles, magazines, newspapers and computer screens, while also seeing items at a distance without reading glasses or bifocals. In fact, in clinical trials, 80 percent of patients receiving the AcrySof® ReSTOR® IOL reported that they never wear glasses for any activities.
- The AcrySof® ReSTOR® IOL is made of the same highly-biocompatible material as Alcon’s market-leading AcrySof® family of intraocular lenses, which have been implanted in more than 21 million human eyes since 1991.
- AcrySof® ReSTOR® IOL uses a combination of three complementary technologies: apodization, diffraction and refraction. Its unique design provides the ability to focus light correctly and automatically on the retina for images at various distances without mechanical movement of the lens, which is required by other lenses designed to provide a full range of vision.
