AcrySof ReSTOR lens is a breakthrough in vision surgery, allowing patients who have had cataract surgery to stop wearing glasses. The AcrySof ReSTOR intraocular lens (IOL), improves vision up close, far away and at all distances in-between, so that cataract patients can once again enjoy life without the bother of corrective lenses.
If you've been told you have cataracts, it may sound frightening. But statistics show cataract surgery is very safe, effective and successful. Once you and your doctor have made the decision to go forward with cataract surgery, you'll need to decide on the correct intraocular lens (IOL) that is best for you. Your doctor will measure your eye to determine this.
The AcrySof ReSTOR IOL is an advanced type of multifocal IOL that may be exactly what you need. During clinical studies, four out of five patients with the AcrySof ReSTOR IOL reported never needing to wear glasses following cataract surgery, compared to only 1 out of 10 patients with monofocal lenses. This is the highest level of freedom from corrective lenses ever demonstrated in an IOL clinical trial. In fact, nearly 94% of the study subjects were so satisfied with their new vision, they emthusiastically stated they would have the AcrySof ReSTOR IOL implanted again if necessary.
If you're facing cataract surgery, be sure to talk to your eye doctor or the Sacramento LASIK eye surgeons at Griffin & Reed Eye Care about AcrySof ReSTOR IOL.
