Acrysof IQ ReSTOR

restorAre you ready to throw away your reading glasses or bifocals? Until recently, this was not an option, but now with the introduction of the Acrysof IQ ReSTOR IOL (Intraocular Lens), the possibility of being free of reading glasses has arrived! This new lens is FDA approved and is giving patients clear vision at all distances…near, intermediate and far!

The Acrysof IQ ReSTOR IOL is implanted during RLE or cataract surgery to replace the natural lens, which has become clouded by cataracts. This new lens can provide enhanced vision quality and full range of vision, giving patients and increased independence from reading glasses and bifocals.

Our eyes are continuously focusing on objects at different distances. Whether it be watching television, sitting at a computer or driving, our eyes automatically focus on different things at different distances very quickly. As we get older, the ability of our eyes to change focus, or accommodate, weakens, which leads to the need for bifocals and reading glasses. By combining the strengths of various and refractive technologies, the Acrysof IQ ReStor IOL provides quality near, intermediate and distance vision and increased independence for reading glasses and bifocals.

Clinical Trial Data for the Acrysof IQ ReSTOR IOL:

The US clinical trials included a three-month follow-up exam of near, intermediate and distance visual acuities. The clinical studies also showed a high rate of patient satisfaction with over 95 percent of patients stating that they would have this lens implanted again.


crystalensWould you like to be able to be able to read, see at a distance and see everything in between? With the new technologically advanced Crystalens AO, seeing clearly at all distances without the need of reading glasses or bi-focals is now a possibility. The Crystalens AO IOL (Intraocular lens) is the first of its kind to mimic the contraction of eye muscles to accommodate and focus at near, immediate and far distances. The main difference between the Crystalens AO and other multifocal lenses is that the Crystalens uses technology to accommodate and allow clear vision at all distances, instead of just multiple distances with multifocal lenses, which are divided into zones of vision. It also significantly lowers glare and halos around lights at night compared to multifocal technology.

The Crystalens AO is the first aberration free accommodating IOL; this lens has an elongated shape to help improve contract sensitivity and reduce higher order aberrations that can distort vision.

The Crystalens AO is implanted during cataract surgery and gives patients the ability to see at all distances without the need of reading glasses or bi-focals.

Clinical Trial Data for the Crystalens AO

FDA one-year clinical study

  • 92% of the people enrolled in the study (implanted bilaterally) could see 20/25 or better at distance, 96% could see 20/20 at arm's length and 73% could see 20/25 at near without glasses or contact lenses.
  • 98% of these people could pass their drivers test, 100% could see their computer or put on their makeup, and 98% could read a magazine, all without glasses or contact lenses.
