ALCON ACRYSOF® RESTOR® IOL.
Now there is a new advanced lens that provides patients with a range of vision – near through distance: the ACRYSOF® ReSTOR® lens. The ACRYSOF® family of lenses is the most commonly used IOL in the world. This is largely due to the excellent long-term clinical results of the ACRYSOF® material.
Cataract Surgery Is Better Than Ever
Great advances have been made in cataract surgery. It’s one of the safest most successful procedures performed today. Yet prior to the availability of the ACRYSOF® ReSTOR® lens the primary option for cataract surgery was a monofocal IOL. Monofocal IOLs provide patients with only distance vision while the ACRYSOF® ReSTOR® lens provides patients with a range of vision – near through distance.
A Lens That Restores A Full Range of Vision
As you age your full range of vision naturally declines and you gradually lose the ability to focus on objects held at normal reading distance. This is known as presbyopia. The ACRYSOF® ReSTOR® IOL – a breakthrough in lens technology – provides a broad range of focused vision that helps patients perform many routine activities without glasses. Through its unique design the ACRYSOF® ReSTOR® lens provides the ability to see up close for activities like reading and at a distance for activities like driving. In the FDA clinical study 80% of patients receiving the ACRYSOF® ReSTOR® IOL were able to perform daily tasks without wearing glasses compared to 8% of non-ReSTOR patients.
Lens Material and Design
The ACRYSOF® family of lenses is the most commonly used IOL in the world. This is largely due to the excellent long-term clinical results of the ACRYSOF® material. Further these biocompatible lenses are made of a patented material developed specifically for the eye. Surgeons in Canada and world wide have implanted over 25 million lenses from the ACRYSOF® family since this material became available in 1994. The design of the ACRYSOF® ReSTOR® lens and its ability to provide most patients the ability to see without glasses sets this IOL apart from all other available lenses.
