Restor Multifocal Lens

Cataract surgery routinely includes the placement of a synthetic, inert, plastic lens to help light focus into the eye.  Without a lens, light will not focus, requiring very thick, "coke-bottle" glasses.  The standard or basic intraocular lens has been used for decades to help patients see better after cataract removal.  As technology advances, patients are faced with many decisions when it is time for cataract surgery.  Specialty lenses require additional fees, not covered by insurance.  These lenses require thorough and precise measurements and no other ocular pathology.  

The Restor multifocal lens allows patients the ability to see distance and near without needing glasses.  The Restor lens works best when it is placed in both eyes.  The optics in the lens requires a "learning curve," or neuroadaptation to achieve maximal benefit from the technology.  It is a life-changing experience for many patients and an exciting option for patients.

Some patients do not qualify for the Restor lens due to macular degeneration, advanced glaucoma, other retinal pathology, irregular astigmatism, scarring, or other ocular issues.
