ReSTOR® Multifocal IOL (Intraocular Lens Implant)
Want to see like a kid again? With cataract extraction (or clear lens exchange) and implantation of the ReSTOR® multifocal IOL, your vision can be restored to see clearly at distance and near without glasses! This revolutionary, new, multifocal IOL is turning back the clock for individuals over forty, who have been wearing bifocals, contact lenses or reading glasses!
Previously, doctors were only able to offer single vision IOLs, which restored distance vision, but patients still had to rely on reading glasses after their surgery. Then, doctors offered monovision to their patients. This involved implanting a single vision IOL for distance in one eye and a single vision IOL for reading in the other eye. Monovision did help restore both distance and near vision, but with the patient's understanding that glasses would be required for long periods of reading and/or night driving. Now, we have the technology to implant a multifocal IOL that promises good distance, intermediate and near vision. "Amazing," is what recipients of this new IOL are saying!
The AcrySof® ReSTOR® apodized, diffractive IOL offers patients a full range of quality vision freedom from glasses for their daily activities. This IOL provides excellent near vision without compromising distance vision or depth perception (which has been a disadvantage to monovision patients of the past.)
Candidates for this new, multifocal IOL are individuals with cataracts, high myopia (nearsightedness) or high hyperopia (farsightedness.)
