The AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® lens is a multifocal lens that is designed to replace the natural lens in the eye after having cataract surgery. AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® has a design that allows it to focus light on the retina for better vision at both near and far distances, which increases independence from glasses for patients.
The AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® lens not only helps with cataract patients, but also gives vision improvement and allows peace of mind to do normal daily activities without relying on their glasses. The AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® lens helps to change the focus at various distances, which allows for improvement for near-sighted patients, as well as far sighted-patients.
In a clinical study, patients were found to have experienced the following after having the ReSTOR lens placed:
- The US clinical trials included a three-month follow-up exam of near, intermediate and distance visual acuities.
- The percentage of patients who achieved 20/20 or better at all three distances with the AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® +3.0 D was nearly fourfold the rate of patients who received the control lens, AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® +4.0 D.
- The percentage of patients who did not require glasses was 80%.
- Over 95% of the patients said they would have this lens implanted again.
