The ReSTOR® intraocular lens is implanted during cataract surgery to replace the natural crystalline lens. ReSTOR®, which received FDA approval in 2005, has a revolutionary intraocular lens design. The lens itself has a central region called an optic. The optic consists of blended circles which work together through a unique process called apodization. During this process, light is focused within the eye to accommodate both near and far objects, thereby enhancing near, intermediate, and distant vision.
Most patients that have received the ReSTOR® IOL are exceedingly happy with the results. According to a clinical study, 80 percent of patients who received the ReSTOR® IOL during cataract surgery can now enjoy daily activities, including reading and driving, without ever needing glasses or contacts. In addition, 94 percent say that they would have the procedure again if given the choice.
