Many people with cataracts also are affected with presbyopia, age-related farsightedness (hyperopia). Unless something is done to correct this condition, such patients will still need reading glasses following cataract surgery. Fortunately, a new intraocular lens has been created that also addresses presbyopia.
The AcrySof® ReSTOR® IOL utilizes revolutionary lens technology to allow patients to see clearly at all distances. Most patients who are fitted with ReSTOR® lenses report that they no longer use glasses or contacts for any activities. More than 21 million AcrySof® have been implanted since 1994, making it the most widely used IOL brand in the world. Now the ReSTOR® IOL makes it possible for patients to eliminate cataracts and treat presbyopia at the same time.
