Would you like to decrease your dependency on glasses or contact lenses? This is now an option with the use of premium lifestyle lens implants. Individuals suffering from cataracts previously had only a monofocal lens implant option after surgery. NEW multifocal IOL technology provides multiple ranges of vision: near, intermediate and far, giving you the opportunity to reduce or even eliminate your dependency on glasses!
Did you know there is now advanced testing available for diagnosing macular degeneration? Macular Risk® is a DNA test that identifies genetic markers associated with Macular Degeneration. By analyzing these genetic markers along with smoking history, we can identify who needs more frequent eye examinations and who may benefit from eye vitamins.

Are you ready to be free of reading glasses or bifocals? Until recently, this was not an option, but now with the introduction of the Acrysof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL (Intraocular Lens), the possibility of being free of reading glasses or bifocals has arrived! This new lifestyle lens is FDA approved and is giving patients clear vision at all distances…near, intermediate and far!
The AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL is implanted during cataract surgery to replace the natura crystalinel lens, which has become clouded by cataracts. This new lifestyle lens may provide enhanced vision quality and full range of vision, giving patients increased independence from reading glasses and bifocals.
Our eyes are continuously focusing on objects at different distances. Whether it be watching television, sitting at a computer, participating in a sports activity, such as golf or tennis, or driving, our eyes automatically focus on different things at different distances quite quickly. As we age, the ability for our eyes to change focus, or accommodate, weakens, which leads to the need for bifocals and reading glasses. By combining the strengths of apodized diffractive and refractive technologies, the multifocal AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL provides quality near, intermediate and distance vision and increased independence from reading glasses and bifocals. In fact, many people who have undergone a ReSTOR® lens implant have eliminated their need for glasses completely. Imagine playing golf, fishing or swimming without glasses.
Clinical Trial Data for the Acrysof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL substantiates a high level of patient satisfaction.
