The AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® intraocular lens (IOLs) draws upon decades of expertise and technology for IOLs. These implants significantly reduce or even eliminate the need for glasses after cataract surgery. It provides clear vision without the need for reading glasses or bifocals after the surgery.
Unlike monofocal IOLs that can only focus at one distance, the AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL is a multifocal lens. Its surface looks like a series of circular steps, thicker in the center and thinner on the edges. Each level focuses light from a different range, from near in the center to distant on the edges. They combine to give the patient a full range of vision without corrective glasses.
In a clinical trial, after having the AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL implanted in both eyes, at 6 months after cataract surgery, 78% of patients reported not needing glasses. Nearly 94 percent of patients indicated that they would have the lenses implanted again, according to a patient satisfaction survey.
