Our physicians implant a variety of IOLs to provide you with the best customized treatment for lens replacement, including Crystalens®. They will discuss all options with you.
AcrySof ReSTOR® Apodized Diffractive Optic Posterior Intraocular Lenses (ReSTOR®) are permanent artificial lenses. Made of soft plastic, the ReSTOR® lens is folded and inserted into the eye through a tiny incision, smaller than the optic diameter of the lens. Once inserted, the lens gently unfolds to restore vision.
A ReSTOR® lens is implanted in the eye when the natural lens is removed because of a cataract in patients with or without presbyopia ("over 40" eyes). This lens can also be used to correct presbyopia in patients without cataracts.
Prior to ReSTOR®, the objective was to restore distance vision with a monofocal IOL. Today, the goal is to enhance your vision with an IOL that may provide you with a full range of vision, minimizing your dependence on glasses, including reading glasses or bifocals.
