Acrysof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL

For most cataract patients, life without reading glasses or bifocals is something they either experienced before presbyopia or they just dreamed about for most of their lives. But today, The AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL is turning those dreams into reality with its revolutionary lens technology, which allows patients to see clearly at all distances, day or night, without bifocals or reading glasses. The AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL is now available and delivers a high level of glasses-free vision. 

The AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL is a second generation multifocal lens that provides excellent near to distant vision and greatly reduces their reliance on reading glasses or bifocals. The AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL is an artificial lens used in cataract surgery for patients with and without presbyopia.

The AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL also has an “aspheric” surface that has proven to eliminate much of the night vision distortions and loss of contrast that can be experienced with standard IOLs.

Presbyopia occurs when the natural lens inside the eye loses its ability to change shape and eventually affects everyone, including those who are nearsighted, farsighted, have cataracts, or had perfect vision most of their life. 


Until recently, most patients had their vision improved with a monofocal IOL. Although the quality of their distant vision was excellent, most patients needed reading glasses to see near objects.


AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® provides a full range of vision, decreasing
dependence on reading glasses or bifocals.

Why we offer our patients the AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL

  • During clinical trials for the AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® Multifocal IOL, over 95 percent of patients who received said that would have this lens implanted again.
     
  • This unique IOL results in highly-predictable visual results, meaning patients can read prescription bottles, magazines, newspapers and computer screens, while also seeing items at a distance without reading glasses or bifocals. In fact, in clinical trials, 3 out of 4 patients receiving the AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® in both eyes reported never wearing glasses after cataract surgery.
     
  • The AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® is made of the same highly biocompatible material as Alcon’s market-leading AcrySof family of intraocular lenses, which have been implanted in more than 21 million human eyes since 1991.
     
  • AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® uses a combination of three complementary technologies: apodization, diffraction, and refraction. Its unique design provides the ability to focus light correctly and automatically on the retina for images at various distances without mechanical movement of the lens, which is required by other lenses designed to provide a full range of vision. With the addition of an advanced aspheric optic, the AcrySof AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL offers better image quality than ever before.
