The first choice in all around improved vision is the AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL. For those that desire improved near, intermediate, and distance vision, the ReSTOR® lens will improve any and all performance. This multifocal lens has been designed to treat and replace cataracts and correct presbyopia, the diminishing ability of the eye to focus caused by loss of elasticity of the lens. Like the Toric lens, the ReSTOR® lens reduces aberrations, or the inability to focus light on a single point causing a blurred image. Once the ReSTOR® IOL is in place, it is beneficial to have a very good light source when reading.
When an aberration occurs, there is any area of unfocused light. With the ReSTOR® IOL, light rays are aligned to compensate the aberration and enhance the image quality.
If you are considering the ReSTOR® IOL, most insurances cover the cost of the surgical procedure; however, an out-of-pocket cost is required for this particular specialty IOL.
