Multifocal IOL - ReSTOR

AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR®

ReSTORAre 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!

RestorThe AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL is implanted during cataract surgery to replace the natural crystalline 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.

  • The US clinical trials included a three-month follow-up exam of near, intermediate and distance visual acuities.
  • The percentage of patients who achieved 20/20 or better at all three distances with the AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® +3.0 D was nearly fourfold the rate of patients who received the control lens, AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® +4.0 D.
  • The clinical studies also showed a high rate of patient satisfaction with over 95 percent of patients stating that they would have this lens implanted again.
