When the lens of the eye is damaged by cataracts or other eye diseases, the ReSTOR® intraocular lens restores your ability to see more clearly.
At Patel Eye Associates, our cataracts surgeons in Edison, New Jersey offer the very latest technology to ensure your vision is the best it can be. ReSTOR is only one of several cataract lens options that may be right for you.
ReSTOR® lenses are a groundbreaking advancement in cataract lens replacement surgery. These multifocal IOLs dramatically reduce or eliminate the need for prescription glasses after cataract removal. For patients who do require glasses post-surgery, a much milder prescription can be used than with monofocal IOLs such as Crystalens.
Technological Improvements in Intraocular Lenses
In the past, implantable lenses were monofocal, meaning only one point of vision was restored. Corrective lenses were still needed to see objects at varying distances. Therefore, monofocal lenses do not accommodate, or allow your best vision, at various distances. Older patients found they depended on bifocals to see sharply at all distances.
Thanks to technological improvements in intraocular lenses, multifocal lens implants such as ReSTOR vastly improved patient treatment options. After implantation, flexible ReSTOR lenses function similarly to that of a natural lens. ReSTOR uses a ringed, multi-tiered surface to gather light from varying distances. The outer edges of the lens view objects far away, while the center focuses on near objects. The rest of the lens works to restore for intermediate vision.
Benefits of ReStor
Studies have shown that as many as 80% of ReSTOR implant recipients no longer use corrective lenses. Not only are the cataracts resolved, but eliminating corrective eyewear can add convenience and peace of mind to your life.
