The AcrySof® ReSTOR® IOL is one of the most revolutionary lens technology in the market today. The unique design allows patients to see clearly at all distances without bifocals or reading glasses.
In the clinical study, 80% of patients receiving the AcrySof® ReSTOR® IOL reported that they never wear glasses for any activities. With the AcrySof® ReSTOR® IOL they can read a book, work on the computer, and drive a car – day or night – and play golf or tennis with an increased freedom from glasses. In fact, 94% of patients said they would have the AcrySof® ReSTOR® IOL implanted again because they were so satisfied with the results.
Cataract surgery is performed on an outpatient basis and usually takes just a few hours from start to finish. Your eye will be treated with anesthetic prior to the procedure so you’ll feel little, if any, discomfort. Once the cataract is removed, the AcrySof® ReSTOR® IOL will be inserted through the same tiny incision and set into its permanent position.
After the procedure you’ll rest for a short while before you go home. Your doctor will typically examine your eye within 24 hours. You’ll need to use prescription eye drops to guard against infection and help your eye heal. Once both eyes have been treated, you will fully appreciate the AcrySof® ReSTOR® IOL and realize that your cataract was one thing you could definitely live without.
