Alcon’s ReSTOR Intraocular Lens (IOL)

Allowing PRELEX® Patients to See Both Near and Far Without Reading Glasses!

CATARACT MD currently uses Alcon’s ReSTOR Intraocular Lens (IOL) for PRELEX, Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) and cataract surgery. This lens can substantially restore a patient’s ability to see both near and distant objects without the aid of reading glasses or bifocals. The ReSTOR IOL's innovative lens optics allows for a greater range of accommodation, thereby eliminating or significantly reducing dependence on reading glasses following surgery – without compromising on distance vision. More people are candidates for Alcon’s ReSTOR than most other lenses. The ReSTOR lens is used for PRELEX, Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) and Cataract patients.

The benefits of the ReSTOR lens include:

  • Quality vision at various distances, allowing patients to see both near and far without the use of reading glasses or bifocals.
  • A greater number of patients are candidates for this type of lens than for most other lenses.
  • In IOL clinical trials, the ReSTOR provides the highest level of spectacle freedom to date.
  • A greater number of patients are candidates for this type of lens than for most other lenses.
  • Works with your pupil to provide quality range of vision in all lighting situations.
